Ethernet SAN solutions developer Coraid has invested $50M towards international expansion and increasing its ANZ presence. The company decided to formalize its efforts by appointing Jason Martin to the position of ANZ Country Manager.
“We already have many satisfied customers in ANZ today including managed services providers, universities, national and local government agencies, and large multinationals” said Martin. “With the rapid growth in data pressuring budgets and with virtualization and cloud architectures straining legacy storage networks, these customers are looking for more scalable, high-performance, and economical solutions".
Martin joins Coraid after founding a technology distribution company in Australia and New Zealand. He also served as the Vice President of Worldwide Services at VMware from 2001 to 2009, helping the company grow to over $1.9B while developing key technical and channel programs such as the widely adopted VMware Certified Professional certification and the VMware Authorized Consultant program.
Coraid solutions are targeted at mid-range and Global 2000 organisations, government agencies, universities and MSPs. Their products are designed to support virtualization, cloud services, high-performance computing, and video environments.
