New Program Enables Partners to Capitalize on the Growth of Software-Defined Storage in the Enterprise to Increase Revenue, Differentiate Storage Offerings and Simplify Solution Portfolios
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – March 23, 2016 – Hedvig, the company modernizing storage and accelerating enterprise adoption of private and hybrid clouds, today announced the CloudScale Partner Program to advance reseller cloud and software-defined storage (SDS) practices. The program provides resellers with a range of benefits including training, reduced implementation costs, discounts and access to Hedvig technology alliances. Partners will be able to differentiate storage offerings and help customers achieve greater speed with less risk than legacy storage with a single, streamlined platform that supports any application in any server, VM, or container environment.
Software-defined storage is projected to experience massive growth over the next few years. ESG estimates that 94 percent of mid to large organizations are now implementing or planning to implement an SDS solution, and 451 Research shows that 67 percent of enterprises will increase spending on software-defined infrastructure in 2016. With the launch of the CloudScale Partner Program, Hedvig joins forces with reseller partners across the United States and Europe, including ACS, Damecon, DatacenterNext, Daystrom, Dovilo, Fabrics4Clouds, Layer 8, NexStor, OTC, Proact, ProcoliX, PTS Data Center Solutions, Rhodix, Right! Systems, Solid State Solutions, SHI, Sysorex and Trace3.
“Dovilo is delivering modern, universal IT infrastructures to enable customers to maintain control and run their application workloads wherever they need them to be—be it a hypervisor, private or public cloud. We call this Hybrid IT,” said Bertram Rutte, CEO and Founder at Dovilo. “Hedvig provides the best storage we’ve found for Hybrid IT. Because Hedvig is all software, the solution will get better over time with new features and capabilities. We’re very excited to be one of the first to work with Hedvig. The market is ready, we are ready and Hedvig is ready.”
In addition to expanding its reseller partner base, Hedvig plans to strengthen additional technology and distribution alliances. Hedvig has certifications and reference designs for leading server vendors including Cisco, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Supermicro and Quanta, making it even easier for VARs to bring SDS solutions to customers.
“Hedvig is the most complete, most flexible software-defined storage solution we’ve seen on the market. We believe it’s a great option to be able to offer when it comes to building end-to-end solutions for our Big Data and Analytics, Cloud Migration, and Converged Infrastructure practices,” said Bret Osborn, Chief Sales Officer at Sysorex. “The market is ready for a new approach to storage and datacenter infrastructure. We’re excited to be at the forefront of this trend as a charter member in Hedvig’s partner program.”
Hedvig provides the elasticity, simplicity and flexibility needed for next-generation infrastructure. The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform is designed to make SDS technology accessible to enterprise IT, supporting common storage protocols like iSCSI and NFS along with new object storage APIs like S3 and Swift. It is the only SDS solution that supports widely deployed applications like SQL databases and virtualized server and desktop environments, along with new modern applications built on OpenStack, Docker, and Hadoop.
“The Hedvig partner program is designed to help resellers increase revenue by identifying and creating new opportunities and closing projects faster,” said Phil Williams, VP of Business Development & Channels at Hedvig. “The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform provides our partners with a new, modern datacenter solution, helping customers move faster and compete better. This places the company in an optimal position to lead the growth of software-defined storage in the enterprise.”
