A global data storage challenger has set up in Australia and New Zealand as part of its plans to continue its global rollout.

Started in 2010 by serial entrepreneur Moshe Yanai, Infinidat made headlines earlier this year with US$150 million in new funding led by TPG Growth taking the company's valuation to US$1.2 billion - placing it among the most valuable privately held companies in the world.

At a local leave, Infinidat has employed experienced data storage executive James Byrne as Country Manager for Australia and New Zealand where he will be based out of Melbourne.

Byrne was recruited from Infinidat's largest competitor EMC where he was most recently Isilon District Manager for Australia and New Zealand, with the growing company already signing three partners in Melbourne, one in Sydney and two in Perth.

“We have also signed Arrow to distribute our solution across Australia and New Zealand,” Byrne says. “It is exciting times for us and we are actively recruiting new partners across both countries.”

Byrne says that Infinidat had strategic relationships with several companies including VMware, Microsoft and Commvault.
