SimpliVity eyes Asian data centers with new distribution deal

13 Jan 2016

SimpliVity and Westcon Solutions have partnered up push hyperconverged infrastructure into data centers across Asia.

The deal will see Westcon Solutions distributing SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure platform, OmniCube and OmniStack, across Asia, including Singapore, Hong Kong, mainland China and Taiwan.

Scott Morris, SimpliVity Asia Pacific and Japan vice president, says the new partnership complements the vendors existing presence in Singapore and rapidly expands its coverge in Hong Kong, mainland China and Taiwan.

The company’s hyper converged infrastructure consolidates infrastructure and data services below the hypervisor into a single unified stack running on x86 building blocks.

“By radically simplifying the legacy infrastructure stack, OmniCube and OmniStack deliver the performance, reliability, security and data protection that enterprises require – but with the economics of the cloud,” SimpliVity says.

The vendor claims that model can lead to ‘as much as three times total cost of ownership savings’.

Patrick Aronson, vice president, Asia Westcon-Comstor, says hyperconvergence is one of the fastest growing segments in IT, and Westcon Solutions is keen to see partners harness the opportunity presented, so customers can quickly understand the economic beneifts of simplifying the data center.
