ExaGrid Penetrates Middle East Backup Storage Market with Dedicated Sales Team and Distributor Partnership


In conjunction with VAD Technologies, brings unique backup storage appliances to the region


Westborough, Mass., United States

ExaGrid®, a leading provider of hyper-converged secondary storage for backup, announced the expansion of its Middle Eastern coverage with the appointment of Rami Nasser as ExaGrid’s Regional Sales Director for the Middle East, India, and Africa. In addition to its Israeli office, ExaGrid will be adding sales offices in Dubai, Turkey, India, and South Africa. ExaGrid has simultaneously partnered with distributor VAD Technologies to strengthen its channel footprint by providing VAD’s resellers with an exceptional backup storage product offering to their enterprise customers.

 

Nasser has been with ExaGrid for a year and a half, and previously held numerous management positions at CA and Arcserve over a span of 16 years. His extensive sales management, business development, and enterprise storage management expertise are central to the effective execution of ExaGrid’s aggressive expansion strategy.

 

Nasser has been pivotal in formalizing ExaGrid’s distributorship with VAD Technologies in the Middle East. “We are excited to partner with ExaGrid in the Middle East region,” said Mario M. Veljovic, General Manager at VAD Technologies. “We are constantly looking for disruptive next generation data centre technologies to ensure that our resellers can offer the latest and greatest high performance enterprise solutions to their customers, and ExaGrid complements our mission perfectly! We’re proud to work with such an innovative leader as ExaGrid in the hyper-converged secondary storage market.”

 

Currently on the ExaGrid MEA team are Mohammed Jaffrey and Francois Eid. Jaffrey has over a decade of experience in the MEA market with particular expertise in storage, backup, archival, and technical workflows having held regional roles Quantum, Nexsan, and LaCie (a division of Seagate).

 

“ExaGrid’s technology for the backup storage market is revolutionary, particularly in addressing urgent customer needs for faster backups and faster ingest rates, restores, and VM boots,” said Jaffrey. “Customers don’t need to worry about forklift upgrades or high TCO with ExaGrid’s efficient scale-out architecture. I am excited to be part of ExaGrid’s journey.”

 

Eid brings 18 years of experience designing end-to-end solutions in IT infrastructure, storage, data protection/management, and cloud, having worked at Hitachi, Quantum, Commvault, and Fujitsu Siemens.

 

ExaGrid’s published customer success stories and enterprise stories number over 360, more than all other vendors in the space combined. These include a two-page narrative and customer quote, demonstrating how satisfied customers are with ExaGrid’s unique architectural approach, differentiated product, and unrivalled customer support. Customers consistently state that not only is the product best-in-class, but ‘it just works.’
