Software-defined enterprise storage platform provider, StorONE, has hired storage industry veteran Bill Cordero to join its executive team as vice president of worldwide channels. He is in charge of launching the company’s new PartnerONE program as well as increasing the company’s Enterprise Storage Platform’s global footprint.
PartnerONE members can use the S1 Enterprise Storage Platform to provide their clients with a complete storage solution. StorONE’s storage solution would add value by lowering clients’ initial and long-term storage expenses while also providing “superior” data security and integrity. According to StorONE, this opens up new chances for resellers to introduce their clients to cutting-edge storage technology.
StorONE’s platform would be simple to use, allowing IT resellers to become experts rapidly without having to study numerous products from different suppliers or pricing lists. Partners may use StorONE’s platform to let their clients to start small and scale up as needed on a single platform, resulting in recurring income.
As StorONE’s platform is so simple to use according to the company, partners may provide additional services and be fully integrated across a variety of data center applications. Another advantage would be that, because StorONE is hardware agnostic, partners may allow their clients to choose their preferred server suppliers.
Bill Cordero is a seasoned industry veteran with a track record of developing and expanding best-in-class channel programs for Fortune 500 companies. He comes to StorONE after working at Yellowbrick Data, Diamanti, Blue Medora, Rubrik, Tegile Systems, StorSimple, and Data Domain in similar roles.
Mr. Cordero formerly worked for Storwize, where he was vice president of international channel sales, with StorONE CEO and co-founder Gal Naor. Cordero is responsible for the success of PartnerONE, StorONE’s program for resellers and service providers wanting to streamline their go-to-market strategies while assisting their clients with storage infrastructure challenges.
“Having observed the maturation and the lack of innovation over the past 15 years and the constant need for solutions that satisfy capacity and performance demands can be both a blessing and a curse,” said Bill Cordero, the newly appointed VP of Worldwide Channels. “While that demand means that opportunities abound, it also means that vendors haven’t found the magic bullet to satisfy customers’ exacting requirements. StorONE’s results-driven technology may finally be the solution that truly satisfies problems by making storage better. I look forward to helping deliver the S1 Enterprise Storage Platform to organizations throughout the world in a way that costs less, improves data integrity, and accelerates performance.”
The S1 Enterprise Storage Platform would help streamline storage infrastructures. It would give IT pros a solution that goes beyond the goals of software-defined storage, resulting in a storage platform that fulfills all current storage requirements while also being ready for future developments. Fiber, iSCSI, NFS, SMB, and S3 are all supported by the storage platform, which is protocol agnostic. All members of StorONE’s Enterprise Storage Platform are accessible on-premises or in the cloud, and they all have the same enterprise-grade feature set and are controlled via the same interface.
“From Day 1, we have focused on the channel, and with the launch of our PartnerONE program, we believe that there is no better time for resellers to add StorONE to their portfolios,” said StorONE CEO and co-founder Gal Naor. “We offer a simple model in a flexible solution to eliminate the training curve and get partners selling immediately. With our comprehensive storage portfolio in one platform, there is no longer a need to manage multiple product lines from various vendors that slow the sales cycle. By joining PartnerONE, resellers have the opportunity to go after more customers. We provide better margins that give better value while offering our partners additional revenue streams.”
