PARIS, FRANCE AND SAN MATEO, CALIF. FEBRUARY 6, 2018 — Cloudian, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, has expanded its EMEA presence with the creation of a new team in France. This expansion supports the growing demand from enterprises and CSPs in the region for Cloudian’s scale-out storage solutions.
Cloudian’s consistent growth across EMEA, and the growing demand in France for innovative unstructured data management solutions, drove the business to increase its presence in the country.
Leading this expansion are Eric Peters, regional sales manager, and Peter Long, technical sales engineer, who will support existing customers and develop further channel relationships. With more than 40 years of storage experience between them, Mr. Peters and Mr. Long bring a deep understanding of the French market.
Mr. Peters previously served in sales leadership roles at Dell EMC, NetApp, Pure Storage and Oracle. At Cloudian, he will work with channel partners and integrators to actively promote Cloudian enterprise storage solutions across the region. Mr. Long joins Cloudian after more than six years as a principal architect and storage enterprise technologist at Dell EMC. He will serve as the technical point of contact for Cloudian in France.
