Evan Powell
CEO & Chairman of OpenEBS/MayaData, Evan Powell has been founding CEO of three successful enterprise infrastructure software companies, Clarus Systems (RVBD), Nexenta Systems, and most recently StackStorm (BRCD). As founding CEO of StackStorm, Evan helped to create the event-driven automation category. He built a vibrant open source community leveraging and improving upon approaches used by the largest operators such as Facebook. As founding CEO of Nexenta Systems, he helped to re-imagine the storage industry as one in which the value of software and freedom from vendor lock-in would predominate. Under his leadership, Nexenta became the leader of the OpenStorage movement and the software-defined storage sector, with thousands of customers and hundreds of millions of dollars of annual partner sales. To relax away from work, Evan runs Spartan races and tries to keep up with his family’s adventures.
