Overland Storage Hires BlueArc, Data Robotics Founder

San Diego-based Overland Storage said earlier this week that it has hired Dr. Geoff Barrall as its new Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Engineering. Barrall was most recently CEO of Data Robotics, and also was founder of BlueArc. Barrall also serves on the board of Nexsan, and has served on the board of Tacit Networks, the advisory boards of Data Domain, and NeoPath. Barrall left Data Robotics in December for unspecified reasons, after the firm installed a new CEO.
