MILPITAS, California-based software-defined storage company ProphetStor Data Services Inc said it has opened offices in Malaysia and Singapore, and has appointed Simon Ng (pic) as regional director, South Asia.
With offices now in Malaysia and Singapore, ProphetStor is targeting the banking and insurance, government, healthcare, manufacturing and logistics, and telecommunications industries, it said in a statement.
"Our newest offices broaden our geographic scope in the Asia Pacific region and puts us in close proximity to a significant number of key strategic providers of storage, backup, infrastructure and data center solutions," said Eric Chen, its chief executive officer.
“Both Malaysia and Singapore have been pioneering Asian countries in IT adoption, and with Simon [Ng] at the helm, we see great potential for developing alliances with these business partners and service firms to provide customers with more reliability and efficiency through ProphetStor Federator,” he added.
ProphetStor Federator is an integrated software-defined storage controller that the company claims simplifies and automates storage discovery, abstraction, and delivery. This frees storage users from the complex storage management software often associated with various storage systems.
Meanwhile, the new offices facilities will provide pre-sales and post-sales support, customer service and technical assistance to ProphetStor's customers in the region.
ProphetStor is also recruiting channel partners, value added distributors and integrators to provide consultancy, design, deployment and post-implementation support for its enterprise customers.
The company will also conduct workshops, seminars and boot camps to provide awareness and education for both partners and customers in its South Asia offices.
Ng will be responsible for sales and marketing, technical services, channel partners and strategic alliances.
He has over 18 years of experience in setting up and leading both regional and local offices for multinational corporations and distributors, including ACA Pacific Technology, Computer Associates (now known as CA Technologies) and FalconStor Software, ProphetStor said.
Headquartered in Milpitas, California, ProphetStor has branch offices in Asia-Pacific regions to serve international customers. For more information, visit www.prophetstor.com.
