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”
