Kevin Frand

Pasadena, Calif., July 26, 2016 — Alliance Integrated Technology, a comprehensive end-to-end innovative technology solutions provider in High Performance Computing, Server Virtualization, SAN Infrastructure, Multiplexing and Archiving, today announced the appointment of Kevin Frand to its technical team. Frand joins Alliance as Senior Solutions Architect.

No stranger to this industry, Frand began this journey over 20 years ago, becoming Apple certified as well as mastering Windows and UNIX/Linux operating systems. While completing his degree in applied mathematics at UC Davis, he became involved in the University’s tape backups and has continued to work with tape libraries, backup software and the associated infrastructure.

Prior to joining Alliance, Frand served as Senior Systems Engineer for Technicolor where he was responsible for configuring and supporting StorNext SAN, Brocade and Qlogic fibre switches, Extreme Networks metadata switches as well as Linux, and Mac servers. He has also served as Support Services Manager for Integrated Media Technologies where he coordinated engineers and participated in systems support and troubleshooting. In this role, he assisted many entertainment giants with their storage and backup infrastructure. However, he spent most of a decade working at EFILM Digital Laboratories as their Senior Systems Engineer where he designed, installed and maintained the tape and backup infrastructure that included dozens of tape drives, thousands of media cartridges and petabytes of data for hundreds of full feature movies.

 “As we continue to expand our business in the areas of Entertainment and Media, Government, Enterprise, Higher Education and Public Institution, the addition of Kevin Frand to our organization underscores Alliance’s continued commitment to our customers and these rapidly evolving markets,” said Andy Tran, President of Alliance Integrated Technology. “His extensive executive leadership background and expertise in the Mac OS, UNIX/Linux, SAN storage, fibre and SCSI protocols, tape libraries, ACSLS, and Atempo TINA & ADA software arena poises Alliance to accelerate our growth and provide more robust and elegant solutions for a myriad of environments.”


Andy contributes 25 years of “real-life” IT expertise to Alliance Integrated Technology, heading technical teams that have implemented large scale SANs and many PetaBytes of data storage. His expertise in Supercomputing and High Performance Computing (HPC) has been instrumental in delivering cost efficient IT solutions to our customers.

Andy’s expertise is working with venture capitalist and startups. He helped formed Adforce which was eventually sold to CMGI for $750M. He has also worked for commercial companies such as SGI, has made significant contributions as a scientist to JPL/NASA, and was the Chief Technology Officer for Pacific Title and Art Studios, well established and successful 90-year old company. Under Andy’s direction, this media and entertainment company was transferred into the new digital world. Andy has been featured in many publications, including Post Magazine, Search Storage.com, eWeekly.com, Technology Target, and Enterprise Storage Magazine. Mr. Tran holds a B.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California.

Mr. Billy Russell whose reputation is highly respected in the Media & Entertainment businesses in California says “the opportunity to join the rapidly growing team at Alliance is an exciting moment in my career” and “I have great expectations for what can be achieved by leveraging our engineers and partners for empowering companies to take sizable leaps forward thanks to the new technology that is available to them”.

Billy’s extensive resume includes positions of Director of File Based Engineering at Technicolor and Manager of Solution Architects at Autodesk. Of his decision to join the highly awarded tech company in the Golden State, President of the firm, Andy Tran says “Billy is a great addition to our core nucleus.
