Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn reports on the Pioneer Square expansion of EMC Isilon, co-founded by Sujal Patel and UW CSE alumnus Paul Mikesell:

“The 200 new jobs over the next fifteen months signals a big investment in Seattle, said [EMC CEO Joe] Tucci, adding that EMC sees Seattle as a hub for data storage and cloud computing technology, with both Amazon.com and Microsoft as major players, along with Seattle’s excellent talent pool. ‘Bringing Isilon into the EMC family was a tremendous coup for us, but I think an equally tremendous coup will be how we can expand here in greater Seattle and tap into the talent, the connections that Isilon has with the University of Washington…it will be a double win for us.’ EMC said the hiring will increase Isilon’s Seattle team by 75 percent since the December acquisition.”
