Australia and New Zealand have helped converged infrastructure company, Simplivity, hit record numbers in 2015 according to the company's recently released sales figures.

It said channel sales in the enterprise and mid market sectors were spurned by increased demand at the top end of town and interest from mid market companies expanding their converged footprint.

Simplivity chief executive, Doron Kempel, said the company’s early investment in the A/NZ region played a large role in subsequent sales growth.

“As hyperconvergence enters into the mainstream in 2016, our strong customer base, dedicated partners, and superior technology foundation will perfectly position SimpliVity to dominate the market,” he added.

Demand accelerates for hyperconverged infrastructure

The company’s new offerings, such as its SimpliVity HyperGuarantee and OmniStack 3.0 Data Virtualization Platform, were key drivers for demand among the midmarket and enterprise.

In Australia and New Zealand key growth areas came from core customer foundation in mining, oil and gas, government, financial services, education, manufacturing, and the healthcare sectors.

The role of the channel

Last year also saw expansion of Simplivity’s PartnerAdvantage channel program. This included adding the new Cloud Service Provider Program, Technology Alliance Program, and developing new advanced training for solution providers. SimpliVity increased its number of partners 200 per cent year over year.

SimpliVity’s strategic growth in A/NZ has resulted in the team tripling its presence in the region in 12 months, with an expansion of the channel management, marketing and technical enablement teams.

Peter Hill has been appointed as the ANZ channel manager, investing in the channel and the corresponding partnerships has been a priority, with Antony Wright joining the team to provide Channel Technical Enablement.

Distributor, Ingram Micro Australia, recently announced that it will offer SimpliVity OmniStack Integrated Solution with Cisco UCS.
