Kumoya to work with number of cloud computing-focused SI and VAR channels in Japan
Cloud.com, a provider of open source cloud computing software for public and private cloud environments, and Kumoya, a cloud computing consulting firm, have signed a strategic partnership to provide Cloud.com’s cloud computing platform to the Japanese IT market.
Under the agreement, Kumoya, will provide Cloud.com’s technology in Japan, by working with a number of cloud computing-focused SI and VAR channels in Japan.
Kumoya CEO Yosuke Shindo said there was a tremendous amount of interest and excitement around cloud computing technologies in Japan, yet there is a wide gap between what is offered today in Japan and what is needed to deliver a truly automated cloud environment.
"We believe that CloudStack and the Cloud Portal architecture effectively resolve this gap and with Cloud.com’s success in helping companies build large scale cloud environments, we are excited to be representing them in Japan," Shindo said.
Cloud.com vice president of business development Shannon Williams said Japan was a very promising market for Cloud.com, and they were excited to partner with Kumoya, which understands the user-driven nature of cloud computing offerings and has a successful track record of bringing cloud technologies to the Japanese market.
