Partnerships kick-off at VMworld Europe
BARCELONA, VMworld Europe, Oct. 14, 2014 – Infinio, a market leader in storage acceleration software for virtualized data centers, today announced at VMworld Europe that it has signed distribution agreements in four regions, bringing Infinio Accelerator to the UK, Nordics, Benelux, and Japan. Infinio and its new distributors will work together to introduce and promote the most non-disruptive and cost-effective way for VMware vSphere customers to improve storage performance.
“Early response to Infinio has been quite enthusiastic,” said Arun Agarwal, Infinio co-founder, and CEO. “There is a lot of activity around the storage acceleration product category, and we’re excited to work with these top-caliber distribution partners, their resellers, and their customers to drive Infinio adoption beyond North America.”
Prianto will represent Infinio in the UK, ARJ in the Nordic region, BGS in Benelux, and Climb in Japan.
“Infinio’s award-winning cache architecture makes the most efficient use of customers’ existing resources to dramatically reduce latency without new hardware or changes to storage operations,” said Yuri Pasea, CEO and Founder of Prianto, Ltd. “We find that value proposition quite appealing, and are certain our customers will as well.”
“Our resellers in the Nordic region were among the early advocates of virtualization, and so there is a strong awareness of the performance requirements it places on customers’ storage,” added Roger Jansson, ARJ Distribution founder, and CEO. “Infinio offers a differentiated and efficient way to add new levels of performance to existing storage systems.”
Prianto Limited is an independent Knowledge Distributor filling a gap left by the consolidation of the UK distribution market into a handful of large broad line distributors. The main areas of expertise are virtualization and cloud technologies that complement Citrix, VMware, and Hyper-V Technology. Prianto Limited is based in Newbury and has an experienced team of virtualization and cloud technology specialists ready to advise the reseller community.
