Arrow ECS Stores on Cloudian in DACH
Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS and Cloudian have signed a distribution agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Arrow ECS will offer Cloudian's HyperStore, an Exabyte-scalable object storage system, throughout the DACH region, thanks to its offices in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This will enable users to store, manage and protect large volumes of unstructured data. Cloudian HyperStore offers full native S3 API compatibility. Customers benefit from the growing ecosystem of S3-compliant applications and have the ability to manage storage across multiple datacentres and hybrid cloud environments. Cloudian recently announced a new solution in collaboration with Veeam that provides ransomware protection within an end-to-end local backup architecture. Patrice Roussel, Vice President Central Europe of Arrow ECS, said: "Cloudian's solutions address most of the storage challenges facing businesses today. They combine the flexibility, scalability and reliability of public cloud systems with the privacy and security of private cloud environments, offering businesses the best of both worlds at a time of increasing demand for storage. And when you consider that Cloudian integrates seamlessly with the applications of many of the vendors in our portfolio, it's clear that this collaboration will bring tremendous benefits to businesses in the region in the months and years ahead." Carsten Graf, Sales Director, DACH at Cloudian added: "this new agreement marks the next milestone in Cloudian and Arrow ECS' longstanding relationship in Europe and underlines our continued growth across the region. Many companies across all sectors are now facing unprecedented data growth and are looking for a storage solution to manage and protect this data efficiently and cost-effectively. With Arrow ECS as our distributor in the DACH region, we can help companies realise the benefits of scale-out object storage and provide them with the tools they need to fully exploit the potential of future technologies such as IoT, AI and machine learning."
