SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Coho Data, a leading innovator in web-scale flash storage for the enterprise, today announced that SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services, has now added Coho Data’s solutions to its storage portfolio. The strategic relationship will address the high performance and scale challenges today’s enterprise customers face in managing their growing data by accelerating the broad availability of Coho Data scale-out storage platform. This strengthens Coho Data’s mission of democratizing web-scale IT for today’s enterprises, while providing North American value-added resellers (VARs) and system integrators (SIs) with a solution to solve customers’ data explosion challenges with a storage platform that scales performance and capacity seamlessly in a single namespace for both structured and unstructured data.

“The storage industry is facing a sea change right now, with increasingly more businesses seeking the benefits provided by the private cloud, with public cloud-like efficiencies and scale-as-you-grow models,” said Bob Stegner, SYNNEX senior vice president, marketing, North America. “We are happy to collaborate with Coho Data to deliver fast, flexible storage solutions to our partners and customers. We believe this relationship will enable us to bring the performance and value advantages of web-scale infrastructure models to enterprises of all sizes.”

By building a flash-optimized scale-out storage solution that leverages off-the-shelf hardware, Coho Data delivers a flexible building block for enterprises to achieve the economic benefits of web-scale datacenters, including seamless growth of additional capacity and performance, and simplified management of a single system that can easily grow from TBs to PBs.

“Web-scale architecture is quickly becoming a common part of modern datacenters and companies are starting to demand solutions that enable them to dynamically scale like the on-demand services of an Amazon or Google,” said Mark Peters, Enterprise Strategy Group senior analyst. “It is critical for enterprises to embark in this direction of using smart scale-out software combined with commodity hardware to change the economics of buying and managing storage in the private cloud.”

“As long-time enablers of enterprise private clouds through SYNNEX’ system integrator ecosystem, we look forward to working with Coho Data to build and deliver high-performance, scale-out storage for our customers,” said Chris Terry, Racklive executive vice president. “By combining our expertise with Coho Data and SYNNEX’, we can design, build, rack and deploy solutions faster than ever for our global customers.”
