Pure Storage Establece Operaciones en América Latina

Pure Storage, la compañía de matriz de almacenamiento empresarial all-flash, anunció hoy que ha ampliado sus operaciones globales a América Latina, y ha nombrado a Wilson Grava, un veterano de 30 años de la industria de almacenamiento empresarial, como vicepresidente de región. En su nuevo cargo, Grava será responsable de establecer las operaciones en los mercados estratégicos de LATAM, empezando con sus dos más grandes economías, Brasil y México, y forjando nuevas asociaciones de canal estratégico para acelerar la adopción estratégica de la familia de productos FlashArray de Pure Storage por parte de los negocios, gobiernos, hospitales e instituciones educativas en toda la región.

Grava aporta más de 30 años de experiencia desarrollando ventas internacionales y estrategias de canal en las regiones de LATAM y el Caribe para Pure Storage. Él se incorpora a la empresa procedente de NetApp, donde dirigió las estrategias de ventas y de canal para sus tecnologías de almacenamiento, virtualización y gestión de sistemas en LATAM. Antes de NetApp, se desempeñó como vicepresidente para América Latina de Symantec, donde ayudó a hacer crecer las operaciones de LATAM de la empresa a más de 500 empleados, y aumentó las ventas regionales en más de un 20 % con respecto al año anterior (year-over-year, YOY). Grava también ha ocupado diversos puestos de liderazgo en McAfee y CA Technologies.

Según los analistas líderes de la industria, la región de LATAM es uno de los mercados de TI de más rápido crecimiento en el mundo. Un factor clave que alimenta el crecimiento del gasto de TI en los mercados emergentes es un mayor enfoque en la centralización del centro de datos, ya que los clientes empresariales buscan implementar sistemas de almacenamiento de mayor rendimiento que consuman menos energía y espacio, y que puedan integrar y optimizar su infraestructura de TI existente.

“El mercado de LATAM representa una oportunidad totalmente nueva para Pure Storage, ya que los clientes de la región cuentan con menos alternativas para el almacenamiento de legado tradicional, pero desean contar con los beneficios de la consolidación de datos, el alto rendimiento, la eficiencia y la capacidad de recuperación que pueden lograrse al implementar el almacenamiento all-flash”, señaló Grava. “Siendo la tercera economía más grande del mundo y una región de alto crecimiento para el consumo de tecnología empresarial, América Latina representa un hito clave en el cambio de la industria hacia el almacenamiento all-flash al ingresar a la corriente dominante. Espero con ansias trabajar estrechamente con los socios de canal existentes de Pure, y establecer nuevas relaciones de revendedor estratégico que ayudarán a hacer crecer nuestro negocio en la región y, finalmente, ofrecerán la innovación que nuestros clientes mutuos han estado esperando. Invitamos a todos los interesados ​​en aprender más acerca de las ventajas y las oportunidades del almacenamiento all-flash, a ponerse en contacto”.

Los FlashArrays de Pure Storage están especialmente diseñados para ofrecer los muchos beneficios de la memoria flash en una matriz de almacenamiento de clase empresarial, y a un precio que permite que las empresas de todos los tamaños se unan a la revolución de all-flash. La familia de productos de FlashArray ofrece una alternativa dramáticamente más simple, más eficiente y de mayor rendimiento a las soluciones de almacenamiento mecánicas de legado basadas en discos antiguos, y están diseñados para cumplir con los requisitos de resiliencia, escalabilidad, eficiencia y rendimiento de las aplicaciones empresariales de Nivel 1, incluidas la virtualización de servidores, la infraestructura de escritorio virtual (virtual desktop infrastructure, VDI), la computación en nube privada y las bases de datos.

Pure Storage, que ha recaudado más de 470 millones USD en capital de los principales inversores del mercado público y privado y que está valuada en más de 3000 millones USD, es una de las compañías tecnológicas privadas con respaldo de riesgo empresarial más valoradas en el mundo, de acuerdo con The Wall Street Journal. La decisión de establecer operaciones en LATAM sigue a un período de crecimiento sin precedentes y de rápida expansión internacional para la empresa, que alcanzó un crecimiento con respecto al año anterior de 700 % en 2013, convirtiéndola en una de las compañías de almacenamiento empresarial de más rápido crecimiento en la historia del sector. Ahora cuenta con oficinas en cada ciudad importante de EE. UU. y en más de 15 países de toda Europa, Oriente Medio y África (Europe, Middle East and Africa, EMEA), Australia/Nueva Zelanda (ANZ), Japón y otras regiones de Asia Pacífico (APJ).

“Con nuestros centros en las regiones de EMEA, APJ y ANZ que ya alcanzan la madurez, América Latina representa otro hito importante en nuestro plan de expansión internacional, y creemos que establecernos en este mercado de alto crecimiento es otro paso importante hacia el logro de la independencia a largo plazo”, señaló David Hatfield, Presidente de Pure Storage. “Estamos sumamente complacidos de dar la bienvenida a Wilson Grava a nuestro equipo de gestión ejecutiva, y de contar con su considerable experiencia para guiarnos en este esfuerzo. Estamos seguros de que él nos ayudará a construir una operación de clase mundial que impulsará la rápida adopción de nuestra familia de productos FlashArray, y proporcionará un servicio y soporte excepcionales para nuestros futuros clientes en la región”.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
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 ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
