Seagate Technology said it will combine its technology and expertise to Quanta Cloud Technology’s newest solution center, opened in San Jose, California.
QCT customers range from financial institutions, web cloud providers to e-commerce retailers. The new center will enable QCT customers to assess various configurations before they purchase a solution.
At the solution center, several different Seagate products will be showcased and can be tested by customers, including enterprise-class HDDs, SAS SSDs and Nytroflash accelerator cards.
The solution center will also demonstrate configurations using Seagate technologies, including software-defined data center configurations, a virtual desktop infrastructure block series solution, a turnkey OpenStack cloud solution and a “cloud-in-a-box” configuration.
“Storage needs for customers running on new software-defined and hyper-converged platforms in hyperscale, cloud and enterprise data centers are growing and becoming more complex,” said Brett Pemble, vice president and general manager of flash products for Seagate Technology.
“Building upon our efforts with QCT since 1991, these solution centers enable our common customers to benefit from Seagate and QCT solution-level products and evaluate them before deployment in their own production environments.”
QCT’s first Cloud Solution Center opened in Taipei, Taiwan in April 2015. Several more are planned around the world.
