Portworx has set out to significantly expand its network of partners and distributors across Asia Pacific (APAC), with specific focus on Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and mainland China.
The cloud-native storage and data management vendor has appointed new partners to grow the number of regional enterprises leveraging storage and data management solutions for Kubernetes.
Specifically, new agreements include ACW Distribution, Futong, Ingram Micro and Syspower, with an expanded partnership with DaoCloud also announced.
The expanded ecosystem joins a growing list of alliance vendors, following partnerships with IBM, Red Hat, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Toshiba and Mesosphere.
"We are excited for Portworx to join our existing portfolio of strategic partnerships and believe in its potential in the ASEAN and Hong Kong markets,” said Francis Choo, vice president and chief country executive at Ingram Micro.
“Containerised platforms and Kubernetes environments are becoming increasingly utilised by DevOps teams, among others, and Portworx's solution can help secure the data, ensure availability and protection.
"With digital and technology transformation as two of our key priorities this year, we are confident this partnership is a strategic one that brings value to the customers."
Widespread and growing demand continues to be seen from enterprises looking to adopt containers, including GE Digital, HPE, Lufthansa Systems and dozens of the Fortune Global 2,000, as well as government agencies.
“As enterprises adopt cloud native technologies like containers to fuel their digital transformation, ACW will continue to provide leading cloud data management solutions to our customer base of large enterprises across the APAC region,” added Andy Lau, CEO of ACW Group.
“Portworx's expertise solving hard problems related to cloud native storage and data management is the obvious choice in the fast growing world of cloud native applications."
To further drivel growth, Portworx also recently appointed Wally Tung as managing director for the region.
“As companies continue to leverage containers and Kubernetes to transform business, we are here to help them realise the value of their container investments,” said Tung.
“Our company was built with customer needs at the forefront, and this expansion underscores the demand we are seeing for a cloud-native storage and data management solution that helps enterprises store, run and protect their mission-critical applications running in containers.”
“We are looking forward to expanding our existing customer base to meet critical enterprise needs at a global scale."
