EVOTEK has announced the appointment of James Caswell (pictured) as the Director for High-Performance Computing.

Caswell joins EVOTEK via Dell EMC, where he was focused on Data Protection. He was responsible for building a $50 million team, by advising customers on strategies to protect and manage workloads across private, hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Prior to Dell EMC, Caswell was at Forcepoint and served in a variety of technical roles in architecture and IT leadership.

“The compute and modern data centre is exploding and expected to approach $60B over the next 5 years,” said Jeff Klenner, President of EVOTEK.

“I am excited to have James joining the team to expand EVOTEK’s capabilities in this market.”

Founded in 2014, EVOTEK is built to assist enterprise customers with the changing IT landscape. The company supports the hybrid space between traditional IT and a secure multi-cloud.

“James’ experience and understanding of where the enterprise wants to go, makes him perfect to assist EVOTEK customers as they build and deploy a truly hybrid data centre,” said Jason Myers, Vice President of Sales at EVOTEK.

The company said its compute, data protection and hyper-converged business has increased in demand, as customers work to support employees from home and support pandemic related transformation.

Caswell will have a team of engineers that will work with customers to identify ways to optimise and improve the computing experience while protecting data against traditional downtime and modern threats.

“Computing needs are at an all-time high while customers balance their own private computing needs, with applications running in the public cloud,” said Caswell.

“Disaster recovery, ransomware and a whole new set of opportunities are at the forefront of customer discussions.

“EVOTEK has been on an impressive hyper-growth trajectory since their 2014 inception. I’m excited to be joining the team to build out this growing business.”
