Exablox Expands Global Sales with Japanese Distributor SCSK Corporation
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – January 26, 2016 – Exablox®, the award-winning company reimagining storage, today announced that it has partnered with SCSK Corporation, a global IT services company in Japan. SCSK is delivering Exablox’s innovative OneBlox®, a scale-out object storage appliance, and OneSystem®, its secure, multi-tenant, cloud- based management service. This expansion adds a major partner for Exablox in Japan, increasing the company’s global reach. SCSK supports businesses with a comprehensive portfolio of IT services and solutions ranging from system integration, IT infrastructure implementation, IT management and BPO (business process outsourcing) to IT hardware and software sales. Furthermore, with its proven storage expertise, SCSK is the ideal partner for Exablox and the Japanese market. For the first time, SCSK will be able to deliver affordable, on-premises, scale-out storage with leading-edge enterprise features including inline variable and fixed-length deduplication, inline compression, continuous data protection and zero-configuration storage expansion to its customers.
“I am very pleased to announce that SCSK Corporation signed the Master Distribution Agreement with Exablox and has launched the OneBlox scale-out storage appliance in Japan,” said Naoki Ike, executive officer general manager, IT Engineering Div., IT Platform Solutions Group. “We will establish a distribution channel with our reseller partners and provide storage monitoring, software support and management services using OneSystem. In order to manage unpredictably growing data, the ability to begin with smaller capacity deployments, seamlessly scale-out over time, and provide data protection services are the must-have requirements for enterprise storage solutions. I’m confident that Exablox’s OneBlox meets these requirements and will be well appreciated by customers in Japan.”
Exablox fills a critical gap in the Japanese storage market, providing an easy, flexible approach to scale-out storage that enables customers of all sizes to pay as they grow. Exablox’s OneBlox is the only solution that gives IT organizations the choice of both inline variable and fixed-length deduplication as well as inline compression, resulting in data-reduction ratios of up to 20:1. Exablox also offers its Private OneSystem, an on-premises storage management platform that can be deployed as a virtual machine and retains the benefits of a cloud-based management solution.
“The Japanese market has lacked a scale-out object-based storage solution built for the mid-market that does not sacrifice enterprise functionality,” said Ezra Hookano, vice president of sales, Exablox. “We look forward to partnering with SCSK in filling this void and helping customers solve their rapid and unpredictable data-growth challenge.”
