Convirture Opens New Office to Serve China Market

Following its Europe expansion in September, Convirture is expanding its presence in China to serve the growing demand for its cloud and virtualization management solutions in the region.

Convirture China is based in Dalian and will be led by Chris Lu, who has more than 10 years of experience in technical and marketing field.

"In the past year, a large portion of our customer growth has come from the Asia/Pacific region and China in particular," said Arsalan Farooq, CEO of Convirture. "Having a presence in China will help us serve existing customers while enabling us to grow our presence in China much more rapidly. Chris is a terrific addition to the team."

Convirture make software that helps organizations manage multi-cloud, multi-virtualized environments that include virtual machines from VMWare, Microsoft Hyper-V, Xen, KVM and multiple cloud solutions including OpenStack, AWS and Eucalyptus.

OpenStack in particular is gaining traction for enterprise-wide deployments and Convirture recently announced a backup solution that is specifically designed to support OpenStack environments running on KVM.

"Open source, virtual and cloud solutions represent huge opportunities in China," said Lu. "IT managers are looking for the best possible tools that give them a cost and competitive edge and often a hybrid approach is best. Convirture's products provide an incredibly useful and cost-effective way to manage and backup the virtual and cloud assets in a way no other vendor has been able to deliver and I am looking forward to bringing it to the China market."
