“SimpliVity, through its OmniCube and OmniStack solutions, offers a hyper-converged infrastructure that combines compute, storage and network switching with deduplication, integrated backup and globally federated management,” Greg Myers, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Tech Data Canada said in a statement.
He added that the solutions could be integrated with Cisco UCS and Lenovo System x3650 M5 systems.
Founded in 2009, SimpliVity garnered interest in 2013 when the industry took notice of its hyper-converged infrastructure at the VMware PEX conference.
Since then, the Westborough, Mass.-based company has fully integrated its hyper-converged platform into OpenStack, providing a hybrid cloud management experience for customers using VMware vSphere and KVM. SimpliVity’s platform combines all the data centre services and functions below the hypervisor onto commodity x86 systems – including the compute, storage, network switching, native data protection (including local and remote backup), cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization and real-time de-duplication.
