NextIO and Sugon Sign OEM Agreement in China

NextIO, a leader in I/O consolidation and virtualization solutions, and Sugon, a leading manufacturer of IT technology, today announced an agreement for Sugon to include NextIO’s vNET I/O Maestro appliance as part of its product portfolio. This agreement – the second OEM relationship NextIO has announced since June – will enable Sugon to deliver simplified I/O management and virtualization options to companies and organizations throughout China.

Sugon was founded in 1995, and has become one of China’s leading providers of servers, storage, security, high performance computing and cloud computing solutions. By incorporating NextIO’s vNET technology into its server infrastructure, Sugon can offer increased data center manageability, greater flexibility and lower costs for its customer base that includes government organizations, financial corporations and internet service providers.

According to a recent Gartner announcement, Gartner Says Asia Pacific Server Shipments Grew 15.7 Percent in Fourth Quarter of 2011, “Server shipments to China were up 27 percent from the fourth quarter of 2010 and revenue increased 17 percent year on year.”

“Adding NextIO’s vNET technology to our product portfolio will help our customers to better manage their increasingly complex data center environments,” said Vanoy Wong, COO for Sugon. “The NextIO solution offers a cost-effective way for companies to consolidate and virtualize I/O resources, providing increased flexibility and efficiency that result in significant profitability gains.”

“Partnering with Sugon, one of the largest Chinese server manufacturers, gives NextIO a strong presence in China, a critical market that presents a tremendous opportunity for our company,” said Brooks Ivey, Vice President, Business Development and OEM Sales for NextIO. “This agreement on the heels of other NextIO partnerships shows continued validation of how I/O consolidation is taking off across the world, and OEM relationships with leading technology companies like Sugon give NextIO a major boost in key regions.”

NextIO’s vNET I/O Maestro is a rack-level appliance that simplifies the deployment and management of complex server I/O by consolidating and virtualizing I/O resources. This appliance removes layers of data center complexities often found in traditional server I/O deployments to maximize the value, productivity and efficiencies of complex server I/O.
