ProphetStor and AIC Partner
MILPITAS, CA and TAOYUAN, TAIWAN, June 04, 2015 — ProphetStor Data Services, Inc. and AIC Inc. today announced that the companies have signed a strategic partnership agreement to develop and commercialize integrated cloud-in-a-rack solutions that combine ProphetStor Federator™ SDS software and AIC server and networking hardware through collaborative engineering and marketing engagements.
ProphetStor Federator™ SDS is a suite of data services software that includes storage orchestration, storage virtualization, I/O traffic modeling, elastic resource control, business continuity, disaster recovery, data migration, and copy management. Under this agreement, AIC will license ProphetStor’s patented and patent-pending technologies and launch a new self-contained cloud computing platform that can be scaled one rack at a time. Both companies will market this converged solution through their perspective sales teams and channel partners worldwide.
“We are excited to join forces with ProphetStor Data Services,” said Michael Liang, AIC Inc. CEO. “This partnership marked a major milestone in our long-term effort to transition from a pure-play hardware supplier to a solution vendor. Together, we offer our customers not only a series of high-performance and high-efficiency integrated cloud-in-a-rack architectures, but also a unified platform that can be introduced into any existing cloud computing environment and provide management, monitoring, automation, and a host of data services across many disparate storage arrays that are traditionally incompatible with one another. This tremendous value proposition significantly broadens AIC’s customer reach in the rapidly growing marketplace of software-defined data center solutions.”
“AIC is a world-class leader in bringing the latest server technologies to the most demanding customers,” said Dr. Eric Chen, ProphetStor CEO. “Teaming up with a first-tier hardware manufacturer such as AIC allows ProphetStor to focus on fine-tuning and maximizing its software’s stability and performance against a defined list of top-quality devices and offer our joint customers total turn-key solutions that are fully supported through a single point of contact. This partnership enables ProphetStor to venture into the converged cloud computing market segment that is otherwise non-addressable with software-only offerings.”
