Federator, from ProphetStor, brings operational flexibility and cost savings to OpenStack cloud computing, Big Data analytics, HPC, and day-to-day storage demanding applications. The SDS vendor claims data growth and longer retention times have increased the burden on data centers, sending IT departments scrambling to accommodate increasingly diversified storage demands from virtualization and big data analytics to regulation compliance (for example, data protection and archiving). Unplanned storage array acquisitions entail expensive migrations, and it only gets worse as budgets shrink.
Just three months following its launch in the US, PropherStor announced it is setting up shop in Malaysia and Singapore, and appointing Simon Ng as Regional Director, South Asia.
"Our newest offices broaden our geographic scope in the Asia Pacific region and puts us in close proximity to a significant number of key strategic providers of storage, backup, infrastructure and data center solutions," said Eric Chen, CEO of ProphetStor. "We see great potential for developing alliances with these business partners and service firms to provide customers with more reliability and efficiency through ProphetStor Federator.”
The new offices will provide pre-sales and post-sales support, customer service and technical assistance to ProphetStor's growing base of customers in the South Asia region. ProphetStor Federator is an integrated software-defined storage management platform that simplifies and automates storage discovery, abstraction, and delivery, freeing storage users from complex, and often confusion storage management software associated with various storage systems.
ProphetStor is actively recruiting channel partners, value added distributors and integrators to provide consultancy, design, deployment and post-implementation support for Enterprise customers. The company says it will conduct workshops, seminars and boot camps to provide awareness and education for both partners and customers in its South Asia offices.
