Data storage vendor expands focus to ANZ region

07 Sep 15

Infinidat has set its sights on the Australia and New Zealand market with new roll out plans and a key appointment.

The company was started in 2010 by serial entrepreneur Moshe Yanai, and provides next-generation enterprise class hybrid storage while focusing on keeping costs low.

Infinidat made headlines earlier this year with $150 million in new funding led by TPG Growth. This took the company's valuation to $1.2 billion and placed it among the most valuable privately held companies in the world.

James Byrne has taken on the role of Infinidat country manager for Australia and New Zealand. The experienced data storage executive will be based out of Melbourne.

Byrne was recruited from Infinidat's largest competitor EMC where he was most recently Isilon District Manager for Australia and New Zealand.

According to Byrne, Infinidat had already signed three partners in Melbourne, one in Sydney and two in Perth.

"We have also signed Arrow to distribute our solution across Australia and New Zealand.

“It is exciting times for us and we are actively recruiting new partners across both countries," Byrne says.

Infinidat already had strategic relationships with several companies including VMware, Microsoft and Commvault, and is looking to create a stronger presence in this region.
