Storage virtualisation vendor, ioFABRIC, has appointed Greg Wyman as vice-president for Asia-Pacific, where he will drive all operations in the region, based out of its new office in Sydney.

Wyman brings extensive experience to the new role gained through senior positions at EMC, Veritas, Symantec, Brocade and his most recent ten-year stint as vice-president of Asia-Pacific for StorageCraft.

“Greg is a proven expert at introducing and establishing new, highly disruptive technologies in the Asia Pacific region, and it is exciting to have him on board to build the business rapidly and develop a strong and loyal channel,” ioFABRIC co-founder and chief executive, Steven Lamb, said.

The company’s expansion in Asia-Pacific follows strong global demand for the Vicinity platform.

“It does to storage what virtualisation did to physical servers – we make storage easy to manage, cost effective and scalable without expensive forklift upgrades,” Wyman said.

“Our initial focus will be on A/NZ, and we will use that as a springboard to expand into the rest of Southeast Asia, Northern Asia and Japan.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
