The company is investing heavily in the channel and is committed to helping its partners through joint marketing efforts, co-branding, sales and support. Exablox is eliminating licensing complexity by offering only a handful of stock keeping units (SKUs) for the channel to transact. “I’ve been working with VARs and end users for the past 20 years and recognize the struggle many mid-size enterprises are experiencing as they attempt to keep up with their applications and storage demands,” said Ezra Hookano, vice president of sales at Exablox. “Currently, companies have to choose between very expensive storage that requires forklift upgrades and complex installation and management, or inexpensive storage solutions without the software features they require. We look forward to partnering with VARs, MSPs, resellers and distributors that are passionate about storage and to helping to fill the void in the storage market with our scale-out enterprise-class storage that’s affordable to the mid-market.”
