Samenwerking Comstor met Cisco en NetApp helpt het MKB aan de Cloud

-- EMEA-partners genereren extra inkomsten met architectuur van ExpressPod

TARRYTOWN, New York en CIRENCESTER, Engeland, 20 november 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Westcon Group, belangrijke distributeur van toepassingen voor vooraanstaande bedrijven op het gebied van communicatie, netwerkinfrastructuur, datacenter en security met een wereldwijd netwerk van specialistische wederverkopers, maakt vandaag bekend dat zijn business unit Comstor gaat samen werken met Cisco en NetApp om nieuwe markten te openen voor het meest recente cloudplatform genaamd ExpressPod. Door de architectuur te verkopen aan partners en via de distributeurs van NetApp en Cisco in de EMEA-landen, helpen de bedrijven het MKB de inzet van een cloudinfrastructuur eenvoudiger te maken.

ExpressPod is een toepassing getest door klanten en ontwikkeld door Cisco en NetApp ter bevordering van de nieuwe generatie servers, opslagmogelijkheden en netwerktoepassingen. Het betaalbare platform versterkt de IT-infrastructuur en zijn toepassingen door virtualisatie en verlaagt daarmee de risico's gemoeid met het installeren van nieuwe middelen. Tegelijkertijd gaat de efficiëntie omhoog en de complexiteit omlaag.

"FlexPod was een veranderaar op het gebied van datacentertechnologie", zegt Ed Baker, directeur van Cisco EMEAR, het kanaal voor datacenters en virtualisatie. "ExpressPod gaat een stapje verder en heeft een eenvoudig in te zetten platform voor datacenters voor klanten met weinig tot geen IT-ervaring. Dankzij een succesvolle samenwerking met Comstor betekent deze bekendmaking een enorme stimulans voor het MKB.

Het pakket verlaagt de risico's bij het installeren van nieuwe IT-middelen, is efficiënter en minder complex. ExpressPod is voorverpakt en getest verkrijgbaar via Comstor, compleet geïntegreerd met de C-serie servers van Cisco UCS®, de opslagmogelijkheden NetApp® FAS2220 of FAS2240, de 3048 schakelaars van Cisco Nexus® en infrastructuurbeheer met collectieve ondersteuning.

"ExpressPod opent deuren voor bedrijven in de MKB-sector die efficiënter te werk willen gaan met gebruik van nieuwe generatie datacentertechnologie", zegt Andreas Dohmen, de executive vicepresident voor de EMEA-landen van Comstor. "Toen wij nog geen half jaar geleden met de FlexPod startten, begonnen onze partners meteen aan producten in reactie hierop. We zijn dan ook verheugd wederom samen te werken met Cisco en NetApp in het kader van een verdere omarming van virtualisatie."

Dankzij virtualisatie kunnen klanten uit de MKB-sector het aantal servers benodigd voor hun IT omlaag brengen. ExpressPod stabiliseert de normale toepassingen zoals e-mail, samenwerking of contentmanagement naar één enkele server zodat bedrijven met meer gemak ingewikkelde virtualisatiemiddelen kunnen beheren.

Onderdelen van ExpressPod zijn compatibel met open API's – op basis van een breed scala aan platformen voor beheer, automatisering en integratie. De architectuur loopt via een collectief compatibel model (Cooperative Support Model), waarmee collega-experts de beschikbare productonderdelen bijeen kunnen zoeken, ingewikkelde klantomgevingen kunnen reproduceren en problemen kunnen afhandelen.

"De inzet van virtuele infrastructuur is over het algemeen te ingewikkeld en te duur voor veel bedrijven", zegt Thomas Ehrlich, vicepresident van Partners en Pathways voor de EMEA-landen van NetApp. "Maar dankzij ExpressPod kunnen meer bedrijven hun voordeel doen met de zaken die virtualisatie te bieden heeft. Met een zeer brede ervaring op het gebied van datacenters is Comstor de perfecte partner om dit platform aan te bieden aan een breder wereldwijd publiek."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
