Datadobi and Climb Channel Solutions announced they have expanded their partnership agreement, under which Climb now will offer Datadobi’s unstructured data management solutions to resellers and solution providers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
In turn, these strategic channel partners will have streamlined access to innovative, reliable, and cost-effective solutions for moving, managing and protecting data across heterogeneous on-premises, remote and cloud environments. As a result, significant digital transformation hurdles will be overcome and eliminated.
Research firm IDC predicts that, over the next five years, more than 80 percent of the data collected by organizations globally will be unstructured data, and that will continue to grow 40-50 percent per year for most enterprises. In an analyst brief titled “The Data Mobility Engine as the Foundation for an Efficient Data Management Strategy,” written by IDC’s Research Vice President of Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group Eric Burgener, he urges organizations to implement a comprehensive data management strategy to confront this increasing influx of data, noting that a data mobility engine provides the foundation for an effective data management strategy and can drive significant benefits for the hybrid multi-cloud enterprise.
“Indeed, this is what we are seeing and hearing from our strategic reseller and solution provider partners,” said Jane Silk, VP of Distribution, EMEA, Climb Channel Solutions. “Enterprise organizations are facing a multitude of challenges as they work to reign in control of their exponentially growing unstructured data environments. This is particularly true as it pertains to their ability to move their unstructured data to the cloud, be it onsite or a public cloud such as AWS, Azure, and/or Google.
“With Datadobi, our channel partners can deliver the ideal solution for understanding, moving, optimizing, and protecting NAS and object data across and between any onsite or cloud environment,” she added.
Under terms of the agreement, Climb channel partners in EMEA will be able to enhance their consultative services and IT deployment and management expertise with all of Datadobi’s unstructured data management solutions, including the StorageMAP.
Built on Datadobi’s vendor-neutral unstructured data mobility engine, StorageMAP enables enterprises to discover, organize and act on unstructured data distributed across onsite, remote and hybrid cloud environments.
In addition, StorageMAP enables organizations to understand and take control of their data’s cost, carbon footprint, risk and value.
