New York, NY – Tuesday, August 28th
One of the most respected analyst in the Storage industry, Claus Egge, has unfortunately and very suddenly passed away late July. I didn’t know him that well personally, but I had met him at shows and talked to him over the phone a few times. He was a very smart person with an incredibly humbling knowledge about Storage and a kind soul. And from all the testimonies on the internet about his passing, he truly was ready to help you whether professionally or personally, always offering to show off his country and city to visitors, for example.
He will be remembered as a very smart, talented and professional individual who knew the Storage Industry inside out and overall as a gentle, modest and very witty person. It is very sad that it is always when things like this happen that we regret not knowing someone better. I do wish i had.
For those who want to pay their final respect, you can do it here and there will also be a ceremony held at the Duchess of Cambridge, 320 Goldhawk Road, London W6 0XF, from 6pm onwards on Wednesday, September 5th. Please RSVP.
Also, a fund has been set up at the Heart Foundation to support much needed research.
The Scality Team and myself are thinking about his family and friends in these hard times.
Rest in Peace, Claus.
