Further to Exclusive Networks’ acquisition of cloud native distributor Nuaware in 2020, Exclusive Networks Middle East today announced the launch of its Nuaware business to serve the Middle East market.
“Nuaware – an Exclusive Networks Company” is a hyper growth, born-in-the-cloud line of business at the bleeding edge of cloud, DevSecOps and containerisation. The move adds immediate scale and services capability across the Middle East to the Nuaware proposition and portfolio, while enabling Exclusive Networks, its vendors and partner community with a unique skill set for capitalising on immense demand shifts brought about by digital transformation.
Nathan Clements, Regional Vice President at Exclusive Networks Middle East said, “DevOps tool chains, containers and the emergence of DevSecOps are specialist areas where Nuaware has carved a truly unique niche in distribution. This puts us where we want to be in this space, giving our partners a readymade platform into new high-growth opportunities. Vendors being drawn to these markets are seeking turnkey channel solutions, and their established partner ecosystems have technical skills gaps that demand credible support. We can now meet these kinds of challenges far more effectively, while continuing to accelerate growth for the next waves of disruptive technologies in secure, trusted digital infrastructure”.
We will hit the ground running with Middle East partnerships already in place with Stackpulse, Gremlin and Sonatype, Portworx (acquired by Pure Storage) and NGINX (acquired by F5).
“In terms of culture, attitude to innovation and the capacity to create unique value in the context of technology and market disruption, Nuaware is very much like Exclusive Networks”, said Clements. “Teaming up this way is great news for our partners and vendors alike. We see many additional commercial benefits from utilising Nuawares’ know-how and unique skill set across and into more opportunities with Exclusive Networks’ vendors and resellers, and I am very excited with the growth opportunity this will present to us and our partners going forward”.
Nuaware was founded in 2016 by Zaheer Javaid and Luke Hasty and has grown exponentially since then through its work with vendors including HashiCorp, Docker Enterprise (now Mirantis), Instana, Portworx (recently acquired by Pure Storage) and Twistlock (now Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud). The company’s London-based team, which works with both large service providers/systems integrators and a network of specialist DevOps consultancies on implementations around the world, will carry on operating as a distinct business unit under the Nuaware brand and continue to target disruptive new technologies and partnerships with emerging high-growth vendors such as, for example, Gremlin and StackPulse in areas such as chaos engineering and SRE automation. Its high-value services, including lead detection, business development, solution design, implementation, professional services and comprehensive training courses, will complement those from Exclusive Networks and vice versa.
