Pure Storage estabelece operações na América Latina

Pure Storage, empresa de matriz de armazenamento corporativo "all-flash" ["totalmente em flash"], anunciou hoje que ampliou suas operações globais para a América Latina e designou Wilson Grava, veterano de 30 anos na indústria de armazenamento corporativo, como vice-presidente da região. Neste novo cargo, Grava será responsável por estabelecer as operações em mercados estratégicos na América Latina, começando pelas duas maiores economias, Brasil e México, e firmando novas parcerias para canais estratégicos a fim de acelerar a adoção da família de produtos FlashArray da Pure Storage por empresas, governos, hospitais e instituições educacionais em toda a região.

Grava traz consigo mais de 30 anos de experiência desenvolvendo vendas internacionais e estratégias de canais nas regiões América Latina e Caribe para a Pure Storage. Ele chega na empresa vindo da NetApp, onde liderava as vendas e as estratégias de canais para a administração de suas tecnologias de armazenamento, virtualização e sistemas na América Latina. Antes da NetApp, ele atuou como vice-presidente da Symantec na América Latina, onde contribuiu para o crescimento das operações latino-americanas da companhia para mais de 500 funcionários, e aumentou as vendas regionais em mais que 20% no ano ao ano (year-over-year =YOY) Grava também ocupou várias posições similares de liderança na McAfee e CA Technologies.

Segundo analistas líderes da indústria, a região da América Latina é um dos mercados de TI em mais rápido desenvolvimento no mundo. Um dos fatores principais propulsionando o crescimento das despesas de TI dos mercados emergentes é o foco progressivo na centralização de dados, na medida em que os clientes buscam implementar sistemas de armazenamento de maior desempenho que consumam menos energia e espaço, e que possam ser integrados com sua infraestrutura de TI já existente e otimizá-la.

“O mercado da América Latina representa uma oportunidade inédita para a Pure Storage, uma vez que os clientes nesta região dispõem de poucas alternativas para o armazenamento herdado tradicional e sentem a necessidade dos benefícios da consolidação de dados, alto desempenho, eficiência e resistência que podem ser alcançados com o desdobramento do armazenamento all-flash”, disse Grava. “Como a terceira maior economia no mundo e sendo a região de rápido crescimento para o consumo de tecnologia para empresas, a América Latina significa um marco fundamental na mudança na indústria em direção ao armazenamento all-flash para uso geral. Estou ansioso para trabalhar junto com os associados comerciais existentes da Pure e estabelecer novas relações de revendas estratégicas que ajudarão nossos negócios na região a crescerem e finalmente oferecer a inovação que nossos clientes em comum tem esperado. Convidamos a todos os interessados em aprender mais sobre as vantagens e oportunidades do armazenamento all-flash a entrar em contato conosco”

FlashArrays da Pure Storage são produzidos com o objetivo de aportarem os muitos benefícios da memória flash à matriz de armazenamento de classe empresarial a um nível de preço que possibilite às empresas de todos os tamanhos tomarem parte da revolução all-flash. A família de produtos FlashArray oferece uma alternativa muito mais simples, eficiente e de maior desempenho para soluções legadas de armazenamento mecânico baseado em disco e são criados para preencher os requisitos de resistência, escalabilidade, eficiência e desempenho das aplicações empresariais de camada 1, incluindo virtualização do servidor, infraestrutura da área de trabalho virtual (VDI), computação privada em nuvem e bancos de dados.

Pure Storage, que levantou US$ 470 milhões em capital, de investidores líderes dos mercados público e privado e está avaliada em mais de US$ 3 bilhões, se encontra entre as companhias de tecnologia corporativa com apoio privado de maior valor em todo o mundo, segundo o The Wall Street Journal. A mudança para estabelecer operações na América Latina segue um período de crescimento sem precedentes e rápida expansão internacional da empresa, a qual atingiu 700% de crescimento anual (YOY) em 2013, o que a torna uma das empresas de armazenamento corporativo de maior crescimento na história da indústria. Atualmente tem escritórios em todas as principais cidades nos Estados Unidos e em mais de 15 países na Europa, Oriente Médio e África (EMEA), Austrália/Nova Zelândia (ANZ), Japão e outras regiões da Ásia Pacífico (APJ).

“Com nossos postos avançados no EMEA, na APJ e ANZ agora atingindo sua maturidade, a América Latina representa outro importante marco em nosso plano de expansão internacional e acreditamos que nosso estabelecimento neste mercado de rápido crescimento seja outro passo significativo em direção a atingirmos uma independência de longo prazo”, disse David Hatfield, Presidente da Pure Storage. “Estamos realmente contentes em dar as boas-vindas a Wilson Grava em nossa equipe de direção executiva e ter seus excelentes conhecimentos a guiar-nos neste esforço. Estamos confiantes de que ele nos ajudará a construir uma operação de nível mundial que propulsionará a rápida adoção de nossa família de produtos FlashArray e oferecer serviços e suporte da melhor qualidade aos nossos futuros clientes na região”

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover.
