LONDON, U.K. and SAN MATEO, Calif., June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cloudian, the innovation leader in enterprise object storage systems, drove accelerating growth in EMEA over the last six months by doubling the sales and marketing staff, adding new reseller partners, opening a new EMEA headquarters, and gaining 28 new customers. This growth highlights the rapidly expanding demand for scale-out storage solutions across EMEA in all industries.
New customers include a global market leader in online travel, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, a multi-billion-dollar roofing manufacturer, one of the leading producers of premium cars, a leader in IT insurance services, and one of the largest global engineering firms.
During the period, Cloudian’s EMEA partner network also expanded, with reseller partner additions including European Electronique in the UK, PQR in the Netherlands, Komposite in France, Akquinet in Germany, and Intertec in the Middle East.
To meet this growing customer demand, Cloudian has also increased its EMEA footprint with a new EMEA headquarters office in Amsterdam, new sales teams in France and the Nordics, and expanded sales staff in Benelux. Sales support also grew with the addition of multiple business development representatives and channel development staff in Amsterdam.
During the period, Cloudian also acquired Milan-based Infinity Storage, a pioneer in software-defined file storage, and has since doubled the engineering staff at that location.
Cloudian’s EMEA growth is driven by the need for petabyte-scalable object storage and file storage solutions for businesses of all sizes as they continue to generate massive amounts of unstructured data. Common use cases include data protection, medical imaging, engineering files, and S3-compatible storage for service providers.
