Parag founded Virtunet Systems with Bappa Sinha in 2010 with the mission to provide easy to use, high performing, and reasonably priced storage for enterprises.
Parag’s stewardship has resulted in Virtunet becoming a profitable, debt free, and a 100% employee owned organization with invaluable IP in the server storage and virtualization fields in a short span of four years.
Before founding Virtunet Systems, Parag has had various sales roles of increasing responsibility at Inktomi (acquired by Verity, Autonomy and then HP), and later at Wind River (acquired by Intel). His most recent role was as director of sales at Wind River responsible for the sales of the first-to-market Internet-of-things management platform that let OEMs manage connected devices in the field. After Intel’s acquisition of Wind River, Parag was responsible for all software and services sales to networking and storage OEMs for the North American west coast. Software solutions included embedded virtualization software, IO subsystems, and management frameworks.
Parag has a Masters and Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
