Wrabetz most recently served as the Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for the EMC Emerging Products Division.

Previously, Wrabetz was the founder and CEO of data analytics company Aumni Data, and the former CEO of Tricord Systems (acquired by Adaptec). She also was the founder and CEO of Aggregate Computing (acquired by Platinum Technologies). In addition, Wrabetz served as Vice President and General Manager for storage area network (SAN) operations at StorageTek. Wrabetz has also been a venture partner at BlueStream Ventures, and she has served on the board of directors for many early stage technology companies.

Wrabetz holds an MBA degree from the University of California, Berkeley, an MSEE from Stanford University, and BSEE from Yale University. She holds patents in load balancing, distributed systems, machine learning classification, and analytics.

“I can’t think of a more exciting time to join the team at Quali,” Wrabetz said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to work with a talented group of people on the leading edge of cloud DevOps orchestration and converged infrastructure.”
