designDATA Welcomes New Director of Cloud and Data Center Operations

The new Director brings a passion for contributing to best-in-class IT industry performance


Washington, DC – May 5, 2021. Washington-based designDATA is excited to welcome our newest organization leader, Supal Desai. Supal will be embracing the role of Director of Cloud and Data Center Operations, a position that requires both technical skills and the ability to direct all cloud business practices. Luckily for us, Supal excels at both.  

“While many cloud directors understand their products well, we searched for an individual that had direct technology experience and a passion for all cloud solutions. Supal is one such individual,” explains Matt Ruck, president and CEO at designDATA. “He brings well-rounded expertise in every area of cloud services to our clients and has a reputation for professional, personable, and knowledgeable leadership. We are thrilled to have found such a great fit for our organization.”

The new Director brings a passion for contributing to best-in-class IT industry performance.

Supal Desai

Supal joins designDATA from Accenture, where he played a critical role as the Global Command Center’s Technology Program Lead. Among other things, at Accenture Supal perfected his ability to direct large organizational changes, implement major security and compliance solutions and regulations, and improve leadership reporting processes.  

“I am fuelled by two things: my passion for new challenges and to deliver outstanding results in the technology industry. To meet these goals, I aim to work with companies that are technology visionaries, dedicated to delivering world-class performance and security. Joining the designDATA team was an easy decision,” states Supal. “I look forward to working with their teams and delivering innovative cloud solutions to our clients.” 

Our Cloud Offerings

Among other responsibilities, Supal will be heading our Cloud Services department, which consists of three offerings: AzureAWS, and designDATA’s private cloud. While there are pros and cons to all three services, every cloud solution offers: 

  • Seamless and immediate scalability 
  • Robust data security  
  • Redundancy 
  • Co-location 
  • High availability 
  • Cloud sync 

“We have a large and diverse client base and offer several cloud solutions for these clients. Thus, it was important that our Director of Cloud and Data Center Operations understand each service well to advise and implement the most opportune technology for each user,” explains Ted Dennis, Vice President of Operations at designDATA. “Supal brings a knowledge base and passion for this industry that meets this need and offers incredible value to our clients.”
