Zadara expands presence in PH, SEA market

The future is cloud

Cloud services provider Zadara continues to expand its presence in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The cloud services offered by Zadara include compute, networking, and storage.

“Our company strategy is to work with partners and build a very close relationship with them to help their customers. During my visit in Southeast Asia, I represented the company in meeting our partners and their strategic customers and also with our global affiliates,” Dani Naor, Senior Vice President for Business Development at Zadara shared.

With a headquarter in Irvine, California, Zadara operates across the globe and maintains cloud-based data centers managed by an expert team. They are also the official cloud supplier of Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN in the Formula One world championship. Other office locations are Cirencester (UK), Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Yokneam (Israel), and Bangalore.

Zadara’s Cloud Platform (ZCP) simplifies operations through its automated end-to-end infrastructure provisioning of compute, storage, and network resources available on-premises and through cloud and colocation providers. And thanks to its turnkey hardware/software, combined with its pay-only-for-what-you-use model, companies can shift to a more agile business process without disrupting their existing systems handled by their IT.

Zadara offers zero-risk on-demand cloud services, hybrid-ready, centralized, and requires easy monitoring with 24/7 customer service and support:

  • zCompute is an elastic cloud compute that scales to meet enterprise demands that is secured, dependable, and available anywhere, anytime. It delivers access to cloud compute capacity and scales on-demand where clients only pay only for the resources used.
  • zStorage is an award-winning enterprise storage service designed to support any data type (block, file, object), any protocol (NFS, CIFS, FC, iSCSI, iSER, S3, Swift, and more), in any location (on-premises, across clouds or in a hybrid environment) and dependable even with the most demanding workloads and complex data protection requirements.
  • Federated Edge (FE) is a program designed to help Managed Hosting Service Providers (MHSPs) win on a global scale, with fully managed, distributed cloud architecture. By leveraging a global network of MHSPs, the FE unlocks new use cases and revenue models made possible for its MHSP members without requiring investments in hardware, technology, or human capital.

Sandz Solutions Philippines Managing Director Enrique Velasco explained, “While we are a primary provider of Zadara since 2016, we are also looking at an ecosystem of partners. You cannot do everything. The opportunity is there. To be able to scale this, we need to work with other partners. I think in the end, we will work hybrid via 100% channels.” Velasco emphasized, “Our main commitment is to provide the best value to our clients. Even before the pandemic especially for enterprise, we help them move away from managing their own IT and are now focusing on managed services.”

Sandz Solutions offers Managed Services that enable IT groups to support the demands of the business. The company provides enterprise solutions that help clients’ data centers provide flexible and agile support to their business requirements. Sandz Solutions currently provides services to SMEs and large corporations such as financial institutions, manufacturing, retail, food and beverage, and a number of government institutions. Sandz Solutions’ next plan after partnering with Zadara includes continuing to scale the business, adapting to all the innovations Zadara is offering in the market, and offering data modernization.

Dani Naor adds, “The Philippines is a very important market. Sandz Solutions, our local partner in the country, has been with us for years. We have a lot of combined knowledge and innovations to meet customer’s need for cloud service in this fast-changing world. Zadara is the technology supplier while Sandz Solutions is the hybrid solutions service provider to customers,”

Naor also expressed confidence that Zadara’s partnership with Sandz Solutions will continue to strengthen in the years to come, “They have done what many partners have not been able to do. We will continue to grow together.”
