BigTec and Cloudian Build New Opportunities for Channel with S3-Compatible Object Storage
Partners can now offer customers petabyte-scalable storage systems on-premises at cloud-like costs
Sydney, Australia – 12 October, 2017 – BigTec ANZ, the Data Centre Transformation VAD, has today added Cloudian to its vendor portfolio. The partnership opens up new opportunities for channel partners, giving them the ability to offer storage systems that meet the rapidly growing demand for unstructured data storage, now expanding at over 50% per year. Cloudian storage systems also address important data management compliance requirements facing Australia and New Zealand.
This ANZ distribution agreement will see BigTec drive adoption of Cloudian HyperStore object storage among key enterprise markets, via channel partners and managed service providers.
“Enterprise customers are increasingly adopting global S3-compatible object storage. Thanks to Cloudian’s HyperStore they now have the opportunity to place that storage capability in their own data centre premises, or to host it with a local cloud Service Provider. This circumvents data sovereignty, and provides predictable cost and modular scalability,” said Alex Teh, BigTec General Manager, ANZ. “Channel partners will be keen to take advantage of this unique technology. Not only is HyperStore fully in step with the BigTec philosophy of compliant, automated, simplified, low OpEx, high scalability Data Centre operations, but there are also outstanding synergies with the rest of our BigTec solution stack.”
Among these synergies is technology from cloud data management company Rubrik, a Cloudian technology alliance partner and fellow vendor partner of BigTec. Customers using Cloudian and Rubrik in combination simplify their data management and storage into these two constituent parts. “Besides this, there are many other use cases for Cloudian HyperStore,” adds Teh. “We see major opportunities around solving NAS data sprawl, and radically reducing the cost of storing cool primary data. In fact, any requirement to reduce the cost-per-terabyte of storage or leverage the super-scale capacity of object stores is a potential win.”
“BigTec is an important part of our expansion strategy in ANZ and we look forward to joining forces to see our vision realised,” said Jon Ash, vice president of sales at Cloudian. “With the rapidly increasing demand for our fully S3-compliant storage systems, we believe that partners across the region will realize tremendous business value in working with Cloudian, and that BigTec is uniquely equipped to enable our anticipated partner and customer growth.”
