RStor, a Cisco-backed provider of cloud services across any multicloud environment, has opened a new sales office in Tokyo, Japan, and has appointed veteran technology executive Stuart Folo as vice president of Asia Pacific.
The RStor Multicloud Platform would be the first of its kind to aggregate and automate compute resources from private data centers, public cloud providers and trusted supercomputing centers on a “next-generation” networking fabric. With RStor, customers have a single pane of cloud visibility into their computing and can determine the most “efficient and cost-effective” path for running and executing workloads.
RStor connects customer environments with cloud service providers (CSPs) through its “innovative” fabric technology, enabling IT teams to eliminate regionality constraints and lower costs in managing highly distributed infrastructures.
“As more companies leverage multiple cloud technologies, demand for our cloud services to manage complex environments and reduce costs has never been higher,” said Giovanni Coglitore, founder and CEO of RStor. “I’m thrilled that RStor is opening an office in Tokyo to support our rapidly growing customer base and expand on our commitment to this market.”
Through its partnerships with Equinix, Coresite and Interxion, RStor’s cloud services are installed in colocation facilitates around the world including Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong. The company’s “resilient and secured” high-performance storage solutions are built for disaster recovery (DR), archive, and mission critical applications, while increasing agility for customers who need to scale and organize their data to meet specific business and compliance requirements.
Distribution Agreement Japan
As part of RStor’s entry into the Japanese market, the company has signed a distribution agreement with TwoFive, which develops end-to-end messaging and messaging security solutions, and provides a wide range of storage-based solutions for Japanese service providers and large enterprises. The distribution and integration partnership would allow RStor to expand the footprint of their object storage solution in Japan.
Stuart Folo will oversee the new Japan office and lead sales, customer support, and channel development in the region. He joins RStor with nearly two decades of experience and an extensive background in fixed and wireless networks, on premise and cloud storage and messaging security and infrastructure. Prior to RStor, Mr. Folo led local teams and launched products in the Japanese market as vice president of sales at ImageWare Systems, Proofpoint, and Cloudmark.
“RStor is helping to transform the way global organizations manage and store their data. At a time when IT teams are migrating between clouds, RStor provides the scale, security, and reliability they need,” said Stuart Folo. “I look forward to working with current and future customers in this unique market.”
