Zynga losing another executive

Company's chief information officer is leaving the social-game maker to become CEO of a cloud-storage company, according to AllThingsD.

Zynga CIO Debra Chrapaty is jumping ship for a higher role at another company, according to AllThingsD.

Chrapaty is moving over to enterprise cloud storage business Nirvanix, where she will be promoted to chief executive officer and executive chairwoman of the board, AllThingsD reported yesterday.

San Diego-based Nirvanix is a private company producing enterprise-class cloud storage services with a particular emphasis on preventing or at least reducing downtime.

So far, Nirvanix has raised about $70 million in venture capital with help from Silicon Valley VC heavyweights such as Khosla Ventures, Intel Capital, Valhalla Partners, Mission Ventures, and Windward Ventures.

Described by some reports as an "infrastructure expert," Chrapaty has previously served as senior vice president of Cisco Systems' collaboration software group as well as president and chief operating officer at E-Trade Financial.

Chrapaty will replace Dru Borden, who joined Nirvanix in 2012 as chief strategy officer and was then quickly promoted to the CEO gig. It's unclear why Borden is stepping down, but AllThingsD noted that he will remain with Nirvanix as a director and senior vice president.

For Zynga, Chrapaty's departure marks yet another top-level executive walking away from the company since its disappointing IPO at the end of 2011.
