SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Elastifile, the enterprise software-defined storage and elastic data infrastructure company, today announced its European leadership team, as well as its first customer and partner Insider Lab for testing and qualification of its transformational scale-out data solutions.
Elastifile's European efforts are led by EMEA Vice President of Sales Bamiyan Gobets, who has successfully led customer sales and transformations with disruptive new technologies, including the first wave of NAS and the first wave of SDS, at Hedvig, ScaleIO, NetApp, Proact, Databasement and Auspex.
Elastifile's technical and customer success mission in EMEA is led by Patrick Van Helden. With more than 20 years' experience in storage, archiving and the backup/restore markets, Van Helden is responsible for all technical services delivered by Elastifile in the European region, including presales, design and implementation.
Elastifile's new EMEA Insider Lab provides interested customers with dedicated access to an environment that delivers elastic data services across their private, public and hybrid clouds. The lab includes a dedicated Dell environment, which is available to anyone interested in reserving time to experience this unique solution.
"With so much hype from so many vendors, it's essential to experience directly the 'wow' factor of Elastifile's simple, elastic, linear scale-out solution, and how it can apply to your actual environment," said Van Helden. "We invite anyone interested – whether for clouds, databases, Big Data, analytics, VDI, high-performance NFS or virtualization – to contact us and schedule some time in the Elastifile Insider Lab."
"There is tremendous need for a solution like Elastifile throughout Europe, and we are well positioned to deliver it," said Gobets. "The combination of unique technical innovation and a well-rounded team of industry veterans gives us the advantage in offering customers the performance and workload consolidation benefits of all-flash with the elasticity and hardware-independence of software-defined—all at a cost substantially less than any traditional arrays. And, with a dedicated Insider Lab, we are providing customers with a dedicated proof-of-concept environment."
