"Fab and I began working closely together as we looked to broaden the company's product capabilities and understand teh replication landscape. He has a very keen sense of what works and what doesn't, and I had learned a lot from him during my tenure at BakBone Software. Fab would be a welcome addition to anyone seeking a strong, motivational manager as well as anyone seeking a clear, level-headed visionary." — Anindya M., Sr. Manager - Strategic Partners, BakBone Software, worked with Fabrice at BakBone Software Inc "Fabrice is one of the premier storage software architects in the open systems world today, and there are not many. His understanding of storage software technology is years beyond most people in this industry. We recognized this back in 1996 when Fabrice was starting the architecture of NetVault 6. The architecture and subsequent performance and adaptibility of that product to applications is the main reason that my partners and I received funding in March of 2000 to startup BakBone Software with a buyout of NetVault Ltd. Fabrice's subsequent designs of 6.X and then the release of NetVault 7 were all award winning products, and allowed BakBone to capture loyal customers and set new standards for the industry. Fabrice's designs also created certain technology that previously was not delivered in open systems backup computing." — Tony C., CEO & Co-Founder, BakBone Software, managed Fabrice indirectly at BakBone Software Inc "I have had the chance to meet Fabrice with potential customers and I was always fascinated how he convinced them to go with us and our product. Not only his deep software technology knowledge as VP engineering, but also his deep understanding of customer needs made us so extraordinary successful. Great job Fab!" — Claus W., Technical Account Manager Central & Eastern Europe, BakBone Software Ltd., worked with Fabrice at BakBone Software Inc
