ASI Solutions-owned BEarena, Canberra-based Qirx, AI and robotic process automation company CU2 Global, and New Zealand specialist service provider and Fuji Xerox subsidiary CodeBlue are among the new partners announced by Cloudian on Wednesday.
Launching in Australia in July, Cloudian said the move into the market was aimed at capitalising on the local need to “manage, protect and leverage massive data sets without sacrificing ease-of-access” - and the company was well positioned to capitalise on Australia and New Zealand’s “heightened reliance on data”.
Commenting on Cloudian’s appointment of new Australian partners, Darren Ashley, Solutions Specialist, ASI Solutions said: “The dramatic increase in unstructured data in Australia has left enterprises begging for a new approach to manage it, secure it, and store it.”
“We see Cloudian as an integral part of the new era of storage and hybrid IT in Australia, and we look forward to driving greater value for our customers together.”
Chris Thorpe, Development Manager, CodeBlue said: “Our decision to partner with Cloudian centred around its unique multitenancy features, robust QoS and simplicity to scale
“As New Zealand’s STaaS industry continues to expand, the combination of our local support and insights, with Cloudian’s proven and S3-compatible solution, will be a compelling combination for our customers.”
“Public cloud companies are among the biggest targets for cybercriminals and have been the subject of many of the most significant data breaches,” said James Wright, Regional A/NZ Director Cloudian.
“Worse still, many governments and enterprises falsely believe they have critical data securely backed up – the truth of the matter usually dawns far too late. Our technology provides the same scale and flexibility of public clouds within customers’ and partners’ own data centers, enabling them to maintain control and security of their data. We will work with our partners to ensure the balance between the user experience and security in hybrid environments is met for enterprise and government organisations.”
