Sanovi Technologies announced the appointment of Vic Mahadevan and Dr. A. L. Rao to its Advisory Board. Mr. Vic Mahadevan was previously chief strategy officer at NetApp, and has over 25 years of senior level strategic planning and marketing experience. Dr. A L Rao was previously chief operating officer of Wipro Technologies, and has over 35 years of executive strategic planning, delivery and technology experience.

In his earlier role as Chief Strategy Officer for NetApp, Mahadevan was responsible for leading NetApp's business strategy and identifying additional market and product opportunities to fuel future growth.

On this new role, Mahadevan says, "Sanovi DRM is a very unique technology addressing the increasingly critical disaster recovery and service continuity problem for all enterprises. High downtime, huge costs and uncertainty are reasons for CIOs to postpone DR activities. Sanovi reduces downtime requirements by 80%, operational costs by 50% and makes DR very reliable.  Its unique approach helps enterprises deploy a single DR management solution across heterogeneous physical and virtual environments, unlike other vendors. "

On the other hand, Rao was responsible for all operations of Wipro technologies in addition to directly holding the one billion dollar Product Engineering business that included telecom, R&D, embedded and Internet businesses. Prior to that, Rao was President of the Telecom and Internet business growing it many fold. Earlier, as CTO, he was directly responsible to make Wipro the first SEI CMM Level 5 Software Services Company in the world.

On his new role Rao said, "Sanovi has already taken the lead in DR Management Software and recognized for its  cutting edge product suite. With its remote manageability approach, Sanovi DRM is the perfect tool for Service providers to offer DR as Service in Clouds at a fraction of the costs. It allows scale up of DR services to hundreds of servers and customers. "

Chandra Pulamarasetti, Founder & CEO, Sanovi Technologies, said,  "We are very excited to welcome Vic and Dr. Rao to our Advisory Board as we are readying to scale up our business; Vic's many years of experience in technology and business development, combined with enterprise storage solutions, will prove invaluable for us in our US market strategy and OEM alignment. Dr. Rao's unmatched experience in global business and service models will help us scale up our revenues and define our Cloud solutions with Service Providers. "
