Silicon Mechanics is now providing hardware integration services for SwiftStack, a private cloud storage solution. Working with SwiftStack, Silicon Mechanics is helping organizations deploy a heterogeneous storage infrastructure that is not just API-compatible with public cloud storage, but architecturally identical and less expensive, the company says.
The two companies are working together to configure SwiftStack private cloud storage with a vendor-neutral hardware platform that meets customers' specific performance requirements and deployment schedule.
"Customer interest has been strong and there is great synergy between the two companies, as we each focus on our strengths and expertise," said Tim Groen, Silicon Mechanics' account sales manager. "Both companies share a strong customer service focus, which makes the proof of concept, production, testing, and deployment phases go very smoothly."
"It's great to collaborate with Silicon Mechanics and help joint customers take advantage of our flexible private cloud storage on hardware offered from Silicon Mechanics," said Joe Arnold, CEO, SwiftStack. "Our combined technologies will enable clients to add newer, faster, denser and less expensive components to expand performance and capacity as needed, rather than being locked in to the typical three-year upgrade cycle of proprietary hardware."
