Moshe Yanai

Over the last four decades Moshe Yanai has repeatedly revolutionized the data storage world, which seeks to reliably store the data that continues to grow exponentially in a way that it 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, founding and building a succession of successful companies in the data storage field. 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 elsewhere, and has assisted various Israeli high-tech companies. Several young engineers that he coached presently hold key positions in the Israeli high-tech sector.

Moshe’s unique contributions have been acknowledged by his appointments as both an EMC and an IBM Fellow. Also, in 2010, he was granted the prestigious IEEE Reynold B. Johnson Information Storage Systems Award.
