Scali Welcomes Klaus-Dieter Laidig and Richard Seibt to its Board of Directors

Scali, a leading developer of Linux clustering solutions, announced that Klaus-Dieter Laidig and Richard Seibt have joined its Board of Directors. Both Laidig and Seibt bring extensive leadership experience and have held senior executive and supervisory board positions with organizations such as IBM, Novell, SAP, SUSE and HP. The wealth of experience that Laidig and Seibt bring to Scali is instrumental as the organization continues to develop and execute upon its strategic initiatives. Seibt has been a pioneer in commercializing the Linux operating system. As CEO of SUSE, he was instrumental in building international traction and adoption of the software, which ultimately led to the company being acquired by Novell in 2004. Laidig worked at Hewlett-Packard for 30 years, where he was instrumental in building HP's European Computer Systems Business in the 1980's and 1990's. He also served on the supervisory board at SAP AG from 1996 to 2003. This gives Laidig a unique understanding of the enterprise systems market, which will be important as Scali continues to develop their go-to-market and product strategies. The company is headquartered in Marlborough, Massachusetts with research and development in Oslo, Norway and sales offices throughout Europe and the United States.
