DataGravity Opens Partner Network Amid Launch Of Industry's First Data-Aware Storage Platform

Exclusively available through the channel, DataGravity Discovery Series will expand market opportunities for partners and deliver a new era of data storage

DataGravity, creator of the first data-aware storage platform, recently announced its DataGravity Partner Network, a multi-tiered program for strategic technology resellers that are committed to helping midmarket customers unlock the value of their growing data resources. Announced last week, the DataGravity Discovery Series will be sold exclusively through a strategic network of partners, allowing them to expand into a wide range of verticals. By automating discrete functionality into a unified storage platform, the DataGravity Discovery Series allows IT and business users to store, track, protect and search unstructured data to get greater visibility and insight into their data.

With deep experience building channel programs that grow business for partners and create value for customers, the DataGravity leadership team has a history of commitment to helping resellers break into new markets and elevate their value as strategic, innovative advisors. The DataGravity Partner Network will arm resellers with a technology that is poised to redefine the storage market. DataGravity partners will get benefits at every level of partnership, including opportunity protection paired with comprehensive program support; qualified leads; sales, marketing and technical support; training and accreditation; and the chance to answer business challenges for their customers with the first data-aware storage solution.

“Our customers are hungry for a solution that can surface actionable insights in their stored data so that everyone in the company – not just IT – can get the business benefits of getting this level of data visibility,” said Joe Paquet, vice president of vendor relationships and alliances at Axis Business Solutions. “DataGravity is redefining what storage can do at an opportune time for our market, and we’re excited to get the DataGravity Discovery Series into the hands of our customers.”

The DataGravity Discovery Series is a patent-pending storage platform that analyzes data as it is stored, enabling users to expose actionable insights and surface issues in order to streamline data management, reduce business risks and increase user productivity. Designed for high availability with no single point of failure, the Discovery Series’ capabilities extend beyond traditional storage by allowing users to track activities, protect and restore files including those within virtual machines, search and discover relevant information, and identify content authors, subject experts and potential collaborators.

“DataGravity not only recently launched its first product to help companies benefit from the rapidly growing stores of data created by their knowledge workers, but also a go-to-market strategy that is 100-percent channel focused with outstanding incentives and program support for the partner community,” said David Siles, DataGravity vice president of channels and alliances. “As resellers sign on to participate in our network, we’ll work together to redefine the storage industry and streamline data management, reduce business risk and increase user productivity for midmarket companies.”

Russell Ford, president of Qumulus Solutions said, “DataGravity is addressing one of the most significant growth areas in data storage today: the problem of deriving meaning from unstructured content. This technology changes the economics around storage from cost per terabyte or input/output operations per second (IOPS) to a real value proposition focused on business insights, and it’s going to get us in front of business stakeholders at knowledge-driven companies in multiple industries.”

The DataGravity Discovery Series will be available to ship in October. VMworld attendees can see it in action at the DataGravity booth, #1647, August 24 through 28 in San Francisco.
