Zadara Storage Expands into China with Leading Solutions Provider

Zadara Storage, the provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS), today announced that it has joined with China's Futong (formally Beijing Futong Dongfang Technology) to make its technology and solutions available in the People's Republic of China. Futong, a longtime leading IT distributor and reseller, has transformed in recent years into a technology vendor and solutions provider, focusing on enterprise-class IT products and services.

Recently, Futong and Zadara Storage entered into a strategic cooperation agreement, under which the two firms agreed to cooperate closely with the goal of jointly stimulating the growth of China's domestic enterprise software-defined storage market. Toward that end, Futong and Zadara have begun offering flexible, efficient, cost effective, and scalable storage solutions and services, and have already initiated installations at multiple customer sites.

Futong chairman, Mr. Chen Jian, said at the signing, "Futong and the entrepreneurs at Zadara Storage have a ten-year history of fruitful collaboration. Looking forward, there are rich opportunities for cooperation in the field of enterprise-class storage. Given the track record and trust between our two companies, we expect to work closely together and reap a bumper crop." 

"It is a delight to be working with Mr. Chen and Futong again," replied Zadara Storage CEO, Nelson Nahum. "The Chinese domestic market is ready for software-defined storage and has already shown a preference for the economic and agility benefits that it delivers. In Futong we have the right complement, given their technical ability and market reach."
