Smart Storage Systems opens new R&D center in Singapore

Infotech Lead India: Smart Storage Systems, an enterprise solid-state drive (SSD) technology provider, has opened its new research and development (R&D) center in Singapore.

“Enterprise adoption of SSD technology is increasing as organizations seek ways to improve data center and cloud application performance that allow them to service exponential storage growth with ever faster time-to-data requirements. This is driving the need for greater innovation of both hardware and software technologies to overcome IT challenges,” said John Scaramuzzo, president of Smart Storage Systems.

The new Singapore R&D office allows Smart Storage Systems to have a more broad reach to top enterprise storage talent throughout Asia, enabling it to drive innovation by combing approaches currently being worked on globally.

The new Singapore office is Smart Storage Systems’ sixth dedicated facility, joining the company’s corporate headquarters in Newark, Calif.; a high-volume manufacturing facility in Penang, Malaysia; and R&D facilities in Chandler, Ariz., Westford, Mass. and Longmont, Colo. The company also has sales and channel support operations throughout North America, Asia and Europe.
