Sydney-based distributor ACA Pacific has been appointed as IoFabric's first-ever distributor in Asia-Pacific.
Storage virtualisation company IoFabric has just established its first Asia-Pacific office, located in Sydney. Former StorageCraft executive Greg Wyman was appointed IoFabric's vice president for Asia-Pacific in July.
According to Wyman, Australia and New Zealand are key markets for the company.
"Historically, Australia and New Zealand have been rapid adopters of virtual technologies, and are a natural fit for storage virtualisation," he said.
"We are introducing new, game-changing technology to the Asia-Pacific region, which challenges the status quo of traditional storage vendors by creating a single storage fabric across entire existing storage infrastructures regardless of existing storage vendor, make or model.
"Just like VMware didn’t care what server was running underneath it, we do the same to storage. We provide the ability to maximise investments in storage."
IoFabric has so far signed 10 resellers, including Insight, in Western Australia, and Secure Networks, and is in the process of signing a dozen more.
"We are 100 percent channel and will be working closely with ACA Pacific to build out our partner ecosystem. Our initial goal is to engage with a limited number of strategic partners and educate them in our solution set from a sales and technical perspective. As we gain our foothold, we will expand that community," Wyman said.
