Kaminario taps ECS Computers to support Asia expansion

10 Oct 17

All-flash storage company Kaminario has announced the appointment of ECS Computers (Asia) [ECS] as its authorized distributor for Southeast Asia.

Recently recognized as a leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays, Kaminario is looking to grow in the region given presence with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers, consumer internet applications and managed private cloud services.

ECS is a subsidiary of Asia Pacific information technology product distribution and services company VSTECS.

ECS will distribute the full range of Kaminario’s solutions including the latest K2 Gen6 all-flash array.

The K2 Gen6 received the highest ranking for three out of five use cases compared to 19 all-flash arrays evaluated in Gartner’s 2016 Critical Capabilities Report.

K2 Gen6 is backed by Kaminario ForeSight business assurance program.

With nearly 200 resellers signed onto Kaminario ACCELERATE, a global channel partner program, Kaminario pursues a channel-first go-to-market model that is deeply committed to ensuring joint customer success and partner profitability.

“The appointment underscores our commitment to Singapore which serves as our springboard into the rest of the region,” says Itay Shoshani, Kaminario chief revenue officer.

“Businesses here are increasingly focused on driving digital transformation. It is an opportune time for us to bring our technology to customers and help them cost-efficiently manage storage, along with the performance, scalability and agility needed to achieve their objectives. ECS has an excellent track record and extensive reach in the reseller market across the commercial and government sectors. We believe our partnership with their experienced enterprise team will drive value to our customers and deepen our traction in Asia.”

“The growing demand in cloud-scale and database-driven application is fueling the rapid adoption of all-flash storage to run on-demand applications,” said Sebastian Chong, ECS Computers (Asia) president.

“With our aligned strategy to play in the mid to large enterprise space, we will work closely with Kaminario to identify customers that need performance in the multi workload environment and online SaaS environments.

“We see a lot of synergy in this partnership and will help Kaminario to leverage our established and efficient infrastructure to propel their growth in the region.”

Kaminario and ECS will be at Cloud Expo Asia 2017 held on October 11 and 12, 2017 at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center in Singapore.
