Partners will get first view of technology to address unstructured data challenge, helping turn data into insights at the point of storage
SAN FRANCISCO – February 10, 2014 – DataGravity, an early-stage company with a mission to turn data into information, today announced it is recruiting a select group of channel partners for its early-access channel program. The DataGravity early-access channel program, which will be unveiled during the VMware Partner Exchange event, will give partners with expertise in storage, server and virtualization technology an early view into the DataGravity solution. As a customer-centric, all-channel company, DataGravity is committed to integrating feedback in order to deliver solutions that answer the real-world needs of partners and their customers.
As businesses store more unstructured and structured data, they are challenged in extracting insight without funding all-in data centers or hiring IT specialists to build complex models and analyze data sets. These organizations need a simplified solution from which IT professionals and business users can more easily begin deriving benefits. The DataGravity platform will address this critical need, which is unmet in the market today. Channel partners in the early-access program will gain the benefits of engagement so they can move quickly for their customers when DataGravity launches its solution this year.
“The demand for insights from unstructured data is growing; that’s why we’ve tailored our solutions to assist businesses in managing all aspects of big data and analytics,” said Russell Ford, president and chief operating officer of Qumulus Solutions, a data management consulting firm that assists businesses with designing and implementing enterprise solutions for cloud storage, virtualization and infrastructure as-a service (IaaS). “As a DataGravity early-access partner, we can offer a powerful new storage option and never-before-seen functionality to bring new value to customers and give them the business benefits that come from data-fueled information.”
Joseph Paquet, vice president of vendor alliance and relations at Axis Business Solutions, an IT professional services company focused on cloud strategies, virtualization, business continuity and security, and a DataGravity early-access partner, said, “A central part of our mission is to help customers simplify IT and get more business value from their data. DataGravity will supply us with a product that drives seamless interaction with data and the insights it provides. We are confident that DataGravity will give our customers and prospects a new experience for storing and mining data.”
David Siles, vice president of worldwide field operations at DataGravity, said, “There is tremendous demand for new, simple and cost-effective technology in both small and mid-sized companies, and the channel model is evolving into a more diversified revenue stream for both partners and tech companies. DataGravity has created an opportunity for partners and customers to influence the development of a sustainable channel program and business that will level the playing field of unstructured data analysis, giving end users and IT teams the ability to reach actionable answers to difficult business questions.”
