New software-only hyperconvergence start-up Springpath has opened their European regional headquarters in the Netherlands to meet the increasing need for data centre optimisation in the European market.
Having launched earlier this year in the United States, the industry’s first subscription-based data platform for hyperconvergence is aimed at businesses who want to move their current siloed-servers into a single pool of computing and storage resources that scale elastically.
Based on Springpath’s patent pending Hardware Agnostic Log-structured Objects (HALO), the company’s own architecture design, the Springpath Data Platform enables organisations to become more agile through IT infrastructure automation, eliminating storage siloes and reducing the cost of data centre modernisation. With Springpath, enterprises can take data centre infrastructure and converged systems to a new level of performance and efficiency, delivering hyper-efficient utilisation with self-monitoring and self-healing capabilities.
“EMEA is an important market for us. We have ambitious plans to develop our network across the region, expanding our operations and partner base to meet customer demand,” said Johan Pellicaan, Vice President EMEA, Springpath. “EMEA enterprise businesses are looking to address the limitations of their data centre environments in order to compete more innovatively and cost-effectively. Our aim is to help enterprises transform their operations to increase performance and manageability while reducing costs. The Springpath HALO architecture and data platform helps organisations accelerate the transition to Web-scale infrastructure to support the increasing demands of today’s IT workloads and speed of business.”
Recognised as the third wave in infrastructure development, following client/server and virtualisation, hyperconvergence is an important catalyst that is making DevOps a reality for the enterprise. Hyperconvergence software gives organisations the ability to achieve an agile and lean data centre environment for the continuous delivery of modern applications. According to IDC, the hyperconvergence market is expected to grow at 94 percent going into 2016, passing $1.5 billion worldwide.
