Moshe Yanai has repeatedly revolutionized the data storage world over the last four decades. This is a world in which the amount of data accumulated continues to grow exponentially, and the main challenge is to store it in a reliable way that can be quickly retrieved upon user request. The first revolution he led was at EMC2, which he joined in 1987 when this was a mid-size company manufacturing memory expansion units for the mini-computer industry. Moshe was the driving force behind the Symmetrix project that turned EMC2 into the leading provider of enterprise storage systems. He repeated his success after returning to Israel in 2003, as he founded XIV, which was subsequently acquired by IBM in 2007. His creativity is reflected in the 40 patents that he holds in the field. Moshe has also contributed to the advancement of technology research at the Technion and outside it, and has assisted various Israeli high-tech companies. Several young engineers that he coached presently hold key positions in the Israeli High-Tech industry.
Moshe’s unique contribution to industry has been highlighted in his consecutive appointment to the two distinguished honors of EMC Fellow and IBM Fellow. Also, in 2010, he was granted the prestigious IEEE Reynold B. Johnson Information Storage Systems Award.
