Cloudian, a Silicon Valley-based software-defined storage company specializing in enterprise-grade smart data storage, has announced the opening of a new EMEA demonstration facility in Amsterdam.
Located in the thriving Zuid-Oost region of central Amsterdam, the center will be hosted within Switch Datacenters’ state-of-the-art data center facility and will enable Cloudian to provide proof-of-concept demonstrations locally.
Founded in 2011 by Dutch Internet and hosting industry veterans, Switch Datacenters is a European carrier-neutral operator of highly secured colocation data centers and build-to-suit corporate data centers delivering its enterprise-grade services to businesses of all sizes including some well-known large global cloud players.
“The EMEA demo-center facility hosted at the Switch Datacenters facility enables Cloudian’s customers see for themselves the scalability, performance, and versatility of our HyperStore products,” said Jacco van Achterberg, EMEA Sales Director at Cloudian. “By opening a locally accessible facility, EU clients will be able to evaluate our products based on their specific needs, and more clearly understand the possibilities opened up by our 100 percent native S3 architecture.”

It follows on the heels of Cloudian’s recent additions to its EMEA team across Netherlands, Germany and the UK.
