SimpliVity’s Expansion in Europe Accelerates, Building on Market Momentum with World’s Fastest and Most Efficient Hyperconverged Infrastructure Platform
Award winning SimpliVity OmniCube™ platform with unique data architecture and technical superiority meets the IT simplification goals of European customers.
WESTBOROUGH, Mass., October 7, 2013—SimpliVity, the pioneer in globally-federated, hyperconverged IT solutions, continues to demonstrate unprecedented growth around the globe, highlighted by extraordinary adoption of its breakthrough technology throughout Europe. Fueling this rapid growth is SimpliVity’s OmniStackTM technology which allows customers to build the most efficient, simplified, and scalable infrastructure for their virtualized environments leveraging SimpliVity’s unique data architecture. Service providers, financial services customers, utilities, universities, state and local governments, and more are all reaping the benefits of SimpliVity’s revolutionary technology and novel data architecture. SimpliVity’s OmniCube, powered by OmniStack, includes an assimilated, all-in-one, IT infrastructure that delivers storage, compute, networking, hypervisor, inline deduplication, compression, and optimization along with powerful data management, data protection, and disaster recovery capabilities.
SimpliVity’s market momentum is global, and the company is experiencing record-breaking momentum in Europe in particular. For example, Europe’s third largest utility company began testing OmniCube in 2013 and is standardizing upon OmniCube as its IT infrastructure for data center expansion including SAP deployments and a large-scale VDI environment. Additionally, T-Systems, one of the largest telecommunications companies in Europe, is leveraging OmniCube across multiple data centers, creating a resilient, agile, cost effective cloud infrastructure that includes integrated, powerful virtual machine mobility, data protection, and disaster recovery services. Representatives from both SimpliVity and T-Systems are speaking about SimpliVIty’s unique, revolutionary design of OmniCube and OmniStack in the context of the Software-Defined Data Center and cloud infrastructure at VMworld Europe, to be held in Barcelona, October 15th-October 17th. SimpliVity is a Platinum sponsor, exhibiting and demonstrating its award winning OmniCube solution.
SimpliVity has dramatically expanded its global network of world-class partners, tripling its number of reseller partners and system integrators in Europe. The partner community, as well as the enthusiastic VMware customers, see the compelling value and differentiation that OmniCube provides with its revolutionary data architecture that includes inline deduplication, compression, and optimization. “The OmniCube solution is exactly aligned with what European enterprise customers have been waiting for: the simplified, multi-functional infrastructure building block that allows them to build out their private and public clouds,” comments Klaus Seidl, SimpliVity’s VP of Sales in the European theater, who sought out SimpliVity after a 15-year career during which he established NetApp’s and Riverbed’s operations in Europe. Roland König, General Manager and Head of Virtualization with Bechtle AG says, “We are seeing a continuing clash between TCO and SLAs of IT infrastructure. The unique solution enabled by VMware and OmniCube addresses these IT challenges by enabling maximum data efficiency, high availability of business applications, and ease of use.” Wolfgang Kurz, CTO & GM, Indevis IT-Consulting and Solutions comments, “SimpliVity radically puts an end to the complexity of today’s IT infrastructure. We are currently running 4 OmniCubes in our data centers and the system clearly provided the promised benefits. By assimilating most advanced network and storage technologies into a single, “all-in-one” data center,’ OmniCube will dramatically reduce our organization’s TCO while offering unprecedented flexibility, scalability, and security.”
With respect to European expansion, the number of OmniCube customers and deployments have grown rapidly. “Our customers are gaining tremendous benefit and IT simplification with their virtualized deployments running a broad set of applications on OmniCube. The unique OmniCube design, combining 2U x86 building blocks with storage, compute, and novel data architecture, is aligned with critical IT priorities in Europe and globally. “The market wants to leverage the unique OmniCube hyperconverged platform architecture for virtualization, data protection, and disaster recovery,” states Doron Kempel, SimpliVity CEO. To complement this Stu Miniman, Wikibon Senior Analyst notes, “Today’s CIOs are looking for solutions that allow the business to be agile while simplifying operations. SimpliVity’s OmniCube is well positioned to meet a broad spectrum of use cases with a full-stack of functionality that otherwise would require the integration of many different products.”
