Organisations worldwide are experiencing a compounding effect on their storage – their capacity is growing exponentially while the value of their data is increasing. IT departments have started to recognize the traditional approach of purchasing, managing, and replacing storage arrays is a broken model. These challenges are particularly evident in the fast-growing Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. Orixcom has chosen to partner with Zadara Storage to offer their VPSA enterprise storage as-a-service solution – both in the cloud and at customer sites, addressing the need for cost-effective, agile storage.
“There is a great deal of complexity and confusion within the IT and cloud services market, especially in the Middle East and Africa region,” says Andrew Grenville, CEO, Orixcom. “Our mission is to address customer challenges in MEA with industry-leading connectivity and cloud solutions. We chose Zadara Storage as our partner because their solution is a pure OpEx, fully elastic, enterprise-grade storage as a service. The result is that our customers can focus on running and growing their businesses, rather than managing their storage.”
“Orixcom is a fantastic partner that has opened up a new geographic region for us,” said Dani Naor, VP, international sales, Zadara. “Their deep technical knowledge and geographic experience make them uniquely qualified to bring our solutions to market. We are thrilled to be able to offer the Zadara VPSA to a new set of customers within the MEA region.”
“The Zadara Storage VPSA has a proven track-record,” said Simon Robinson, research VP at 451 Research LLC. “The alignment of Orixcom with Zadara Storage is a positive move for companies within the MEA region who now have access to an industry-leading enterprise storage as a service solution. IT organizations within the region now have access to alternatives to the traditional, inefficient buy-manage-replace cycle and gain the flexibility, agility and cost benefits of the as-a-service model.”
