Alex Jones has been named to the company's advisory board.
He serves as Kubernetes engineering director at Canonical and contributes to the CNCF TAG App Delivery as tech lead.
He has invested more than a decade in engineering leadership roles at Microsoft, JPMorgan, American Express and British Sky Broadcasting.
A frequent speaker, advisor and mentor, Jones is engaged in the cloud open source native technology community.
"Alex brings us an extraordinary combination of technical depth and market savvy," Ondat founder and CEO Alex Chircop says.
"His experiences helping organisations at massive scale design, implement and manage storage architectures across the globe will benefit not only our product and technical planning processes, but it will help us better understand the mind of the enterprise buyers who more and more are reaching out to us to help solve their most challenging cloud native storage problems."
Jones joins recent additions to the advisory board, Lisa-Marie Namphy and Cheryl Hung.
"Ondat is in a great position technically and from an architectural standpoint to address these new-era challenges in a way that does not tax developers with additional toil and yet another shift-left learning curve," Jones says.
"Ondat delivers the value of an opinionated solution rather than a bucket of parts. It provides narrative, journey and guardrails for most any level of user, from a single developer with a WordPress site to a distributed team at a multinational corporation.
"I'm excited to be a part of helping drive that vision into the market."
