This week, cloud storage provider SwiftStack announced that it has signed Tata Communications, Vizrt, Avere and Mirantis as reseller partners for its object storage and asset management through partnering data centers.
These companies will now deliver unique solutions for their customer bases by integrating and reselling SwiftStack object storage with their latest offerings.
The announcement follows SwiftStack’s agreement with Cisco, which they claim will allow enterprise customers to build public cloud storage capabilities into their on-premise data centers. Swiftstack says that the new partnerships build on this agreement, further integrating solutions.
Don Jaworski, CEO of SwiftStack said :
Our design center is rooted in freedom of choice, enabling those integrating our technology to use any preferred hardware to offer software-defined object storage for applications supporting either the AWS S3 or OpenStack Swift APIs.
Vikram Balimidi, Director of Product Marketing for Data Center, Cloud, and Security Services at Tata Communications says that the new SwiftStack offerings will benefit its APAC customers.
He added :
Our goal in building our IZO Cloud Storage was to offer unlimited storage capacity in Tata Communications’ owned and associated data centers in India, Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK.
Integrating SwiftStack into our offering enables the end-to-end management of data over the Tata Communications global network.
