Kempel was selected for his extraordinary leadership skills and ability to deliver exceptional solutions to the needs of the midmarket CIOs and IT leaders.
“I’m honored to be recognized by Midsize Enterprise Summit as one of its elite IT leaders helping midmarket customers transform their data centers with SimpliVity OmniCube,” said Kempel. “There is a significant need for simplified and cost-effective data center solutions. SimpliVity delivers the best of both worlds to customers: x86 cloud economics and tier-1 enterprise capabilities. We are 100 percent committed to our channel partners and work with them closely to provide world-class technology and services to help customers succeed.”
Companies are struggling with massive amounts of data that costs millions of dollars to collect, store and manage. The continuous investment in IT resources, including server, storage and networking hardware that use inefficient methods of storing and processing data is not the answer. SimpliVity provides the best of both worlds for today’s virtualized data centers: the ease-of-scale and -deployment, efficiency, and economics of cloud infrastructure combined with the performance, protection and manageability of enterprise IT. SimpliVity OmniCube consolidates up to a dozen data center services into a single unified stack. Deploying a network of two or more OmniCubes creates a global federation that facilitates efficient data movement, resource sharing and scalability. OmniCube’s data architecture is delivered on commodity x86 building blocks to help organizations realize a 3x TCO savings.
“The executives named and the companies they represent serve the midmarket with unwavering commitment, and are dedicated to creating solutions that meet the unique needs of this market” said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president of strategic content, XChange events. “Our Midsize Enterprise Summit is an ideal venue to honor these deserving leaders, and we congratulate each executive on their success.”
The Top 50 Midmarket IT Vendor Executive list was unveiled at the Midsize Enterprise Summit (MES), September 14-16 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Dallas, Texas.
