Cybersecurity value-added distributor Exclusive Networks Middle East has added Cloudian to its vendor portfolio. The partnership opens up new opportunities for channel partners, giving them the ability to build scale-out petabyte hybrid cloud solutions, allowing them to tap into new cloud storage revenues. It also addresses important data management compliance requirements such as EU GDPR.
This pan-EMEA/APAC distribution agreement will see Exclusive Networks drive adoption of Cloudian’s petabyte-scale, hybrid cloud object storage platform – HyperStore – among key enterprise markets, via channel partners and managed service providers.
“There are a growing number of enterprise customers that use global S3 object storage services. Thanks to Cloudian’s HyperStore, they now have the opportunity to place that storage capability in their own datacentre premises, or to host it with a local cloud service provider. This overcomes the data sovereignty issues that surround compliance measures like GDPR, and provides predictable cost and modular scalability,” said Oliver Downs, Alliances Manager, Exclusive Networks Middle East. “Channel partners will be keen to take advantage of this unique technology. Not only is HyperStore fully in step with the Exclusive Networks philosophy of compliant, automated, simplified, low opex, high scalability datacentre operations, but there are also outstanding synergies with the rest of our solution stack.”
Among these synergies is technology from cloud data management company Rubrik, a Cloudian technology alliance partner and fellow vendor partner of Exclusive Networks. Customers using Cloudian and Rubrik in combination simplify their entire data management and storage into these two constituent parts. Other notable synergies within Exclusive Networks’ current solution stack includes Nutanix, where Cloudian HyperStore provides extra capacity for customers’ large-scale storage demands, particularly where information that is less frequency used can be managed in collaboration.
Jacco van Achterberg, EMEA director, Cloudian, said, “We are committed to supporting high quality partners that understand the possibilities of scale-out object storage, both in the Middle East and across the entire EMEA/APAC Exclusive Networks footprint. Exclusive Networks is uniquely equipped to enable our anticipated partner and customer growth.”
