Infinidat eyes ANZ play with NEXTDC partnership

10 Oct 16

Infinidat has confirmed it has entered into a partnership with data center operator NEXTDC, as the company looks to broaden its market to customers in Australia and New Zealand.

According to the enterprise data storage solutions firm, the move will encourage NEXTDC’s partner community to utilise Infinidat’s storage-as-a-service (STaaS) platform to expand their service offerings.

“This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our technology leadership in solving today’s growing data problems,” comments Mark Brown, general manager ANZ, Infinidat.

“The Infinidat STaaS platform provides the storage performance, capacity and resiliency that enable cloud storage providers to provide extremely efficient and reliable data storage capabilities,” he explains.

Infinidat began shipping its enterprise data storage solutions in late 2013. Earlier this year, the company announced its global expansion, with offices opening in major cities across APAC, EMEA, and North America.

Brown says the global expansion is a direct result of the increasing universal demand for Infinidat’s enterprise data storage solutions.

Steve Martin, head of channel at NEXTDC, says the relationship with Infinidat will will allow NEXTDC partners to leverage Infinidat storage products to complement and extend their own offerings

“INFINIDAT has chosen NEXTDC as their data center solutions partner based on the strength of our partner ecosystem and knowledge of the cloud services market,” Martin says.

Infinidat and NEXTDC will officially launch the STaaS offering at upcoming events in Sydney and Melbourne at the end of October
