StorageCraft and Exablox joined forces today to help businesses analyze, protect, and store their data. The new entity is the first with an approach that recognizes the blurring lines between primary and secondary storage, and between data availability and data protection.
A: This acquisition is a natural extension of a larger strategy that was set in motion a year ago with the arrival of Matt Medeiros as Chairman and CEO of StorageCraft. The successful OEM distribution agreement the two companies last year confirmed the powerful synergy between OneBlox, an infinite scale-out storage solution, and the proven reliability of StorageCraft’s award-winning line of business continuity solutions. ShadowProtect SPX was recognized as the “Best of VMWorld 2016” Gold Award winner in the data protection category.
A: Resellers and end users will both see an immediate benefit from this relationship, with more integrations and enhancements to follow as we disclose our technology roadmap. As StorageCraft’s SMB channel strength meets the mid-tier strength of Exablox, partners will be well-positioned to take advantage of exploding data management market trends. Partners will have the opportunity to solve their customers’ primary and secondary storage challenges with the combined product portfolio.
A: Sales and support contacts that are already in place for both companies will continue in the near term without disruption. As new efficiencies are introduced, partners will receive advance notice on any contact process updates. All partners in the combined StorageCraft and Exablox communities will be invited to ongoing business and technical training webinars. In addition to deep dives on individual products, existing partners and customers will receive regular updates on how the solutions can work together for added technical and cost benefits.
A: Exablox has been recognized with numerous industry accolades over the years, including recognition as a Cool Vendor by Gartner Group. The Exablox brand will remain and for the near term, Exablox and StorageCraft will continue to function independently for both new and existing customers. There are aggressive integration plans underway that will open up exciting new business possibilities in both the SMB and mid-enterprise markets. The two companies will work together to help organizations maintain uptime and manage their data explosion.
A: Yes, many resellers and end users have already had success combining Exablox and StorageCraft, and this synergy has been proven for months in the prior OEM distribution agreement. Visit the Exablox website for more information. Although StorageCraft and Exablox products will continue to work and be supported independently, exciting integration plans will open up new deployment possibilities and we’ll be announcing them soon.
A: Support contacts will remain the same for both product lines in the near term. For Exablox, call 855.EXABLOX or email [email protected], The StorageCraft support team can be reached at https://www.storagecraft.com/support/
