Springpath Expands Into EMEA to Meet Growing Demand for Hyperconvergence
Springpath, the pioneer in hyperconvergence software, today announced its expansion into Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) with the opening of the regional headquarters in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands and appointment of Johan Pellicaan as Vice President EMEA. The company also announced its first EMEA distribution agreement with Dupaco Distribution in the Netherlands.
Having launched earlier this year in the United States, Springpath’s expansion follows growing demand in the EMEA market for data centre optimisation as enterprises transition to Web-scale, software-defined infrastructure and look to exploit Infrastructure-as-a-Service capabilities.
Springpath offers the industry’s first subscription-based data platform for hyperconvergence that transforms standard servers into a single pool of computing and storage resources that scale elastically. Based on Springpath’s patent pending Hardware Agnostic Log-structured Objects (HALO), the company’s own architecture design, the Springpath Data Platform enables organisations to become more agile through IT infrastructure automation, eliminating storage siloes and reducing the cost of data centre modernisation. With Springpath, enterprises can take data centre infrastructure and converged systems to a new level of performance and efficiency, delivering hyper-efficient utilisation with self-monitoring and self-healing capabilities.
“EMEA is an important market for us. We have ambitious plans to develop our network across the region, expanding our operations and partner base to meet customer demand,” said Johan Pellicaan, Vice President EMEA, Springpath. “EMEA enterprise businesses are looking to address the limitations of their data centre environments in order to compete more innovatively and cost-effectively. Our aim is to help enterprises transform their operations to increase performance and manageability while reducing costs. The Springpath HALO architecture and data platform helps organisations accelerate the transition to Web-scale infrastructure to support the increasing demands of today’s IT workloads and speed of business.”
Recognised as the third wave in infrastructure development, following client/server and virtualisation, hyperconvergence is an important catalyst that is making DevOps a reality for the enterprise. Hyperconvergence software gives organisations the ability to achieve an agile and lean data centre environment for the continuous delivery of modern applications. According to IDC, the hyperconvergence market is expected to grow at 94 percent going into 2016, passing $1.5 billion worldwide.
Commenting on the appointment of Dupaco Distribution as the first EMEA distributor for Springpath, Erik Monninkhof, director and co-founder of Dupaco Distribution, said, “We are excited to add Springpath to our portfolio. The capabilities and functionality in hyperconvergence software will be a true added value for our partners. They are a ground-breaking company bringing a new wave of innovation to the data centre.”
