Jedidiah Yueh, President and CEO
In 1999, Jedidiah Yueh founded Avamar, a software company that pioneered data de-duplication and shipped a billion-dollar product in the backup and recovery industry, with over 20,000 current customers. Today, de-duplication is a high priority for enterprise data centers, and the technology has become a must-have feature or product for major storage and software vendors. Data de-duplication strips away redundant data to make disks more cost effective than tape media for storing a wide variety of data types, such as daily, repeated backup sets. EMC acquired Avamar in November 2006 for $165 million. EMC executives have stated that Avamar is the best performing investment for EMC since VMware.
Yueh has demonstrated a successful track record for identifying new market opportunities and staying ahead of industry trends. As VP of Product Management at EMC, Yueh helped launch the Avamar Data Store and the Avamar Virtual Edition in 2007, two innovative and successful products that have helped EMC maintain a leadership position in the industry. Prior to Avamar, Yueh served as Chief Operating Officer for NTD, an optical storage startup. He brings over a decade of experience in the software and data storage industries and has more than 6 patents or patents pending.
Yueh graduated Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude with an AB from Harvard University. Under former President George H. Bush, he was designated a US Presidential Scholar, one of the highest academic achievements awarded nationally.
