Hyperconverged infrastructure continues to be the hottest technology in all of IT. All across the globe, customers and partners alike are quick to embrace hyperconvergence in efforts to drive down data center costs, reduce complexity, and make businesses more operationally efficient. And customers and partners in ANZ are no exception as 40% of SimpliVity’s bookings are coming from outside the United States and our customer base in APJ increased by 50% in the second quarter.
A big reason for SimpliVity’s increased momentum and presence in ANZ is our talented team in the region. One member of the team, Peter Hill, was just recently named a CRN Channel Chief in ANZ for his outstanding work as SimpliVity’s ANZ channels and alliances director.
I want to extend my congratulations to Peter and to our entire team worldwide. It’s due to the hard work and contributions of the team that makes SimpliVity a Leader in hyperconverged infrastructure. CRN’s acknowledgement of Peter is the latest achievement for our team, following Jess McRae being recognized as an unsung hero of the channel by CRN, and our entire team and company receiving the top marks for product innovation, support, and partnership in the hyperconverged/converged infrastructure category in CRN’s Annual Report Card.
Thank you to all who continue to support our excellent team and encourage our company to keep on innovating, both from a technology and a channel perspective!
