Sistina Software, a developer of software that simplifies complex data storage and dramatically reduces storage costs, today announced a reseller partnership with Singapore Computer Systems (SCS), a premier information and communications technology service provider in the Asia-Pacific region. The partnership will enable SCS' Linux
Competency Centre (LCC) to provide its customers with scalable and economical data management and storage systems in Linux environments using
Sistina's Global File System (GFS). Under the terms of the partnership, the LCC will incorporate Sistina's GFS as an integral offering in their data storage solutions for clients in the
enterprise and high performance technical computing markets. The SCS-LCC is a one-stop shop for Linux hardware, software, services and solutions. The centre also provides Red Hat Linux training and the internationally recognized Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certification. The LCC is recognized for its pioneering work in the area of High Performance Technical Computing (HPTC) clusters, and was involved in building one of Asia Pacific's largest HPTC cluster for a Singapore research institute last year. "We are seeing tremendous growth in the use of Linux in both the enterprise and the technical computing field. Sistina's GFS will provide our enterprise
customers with a high performance and affordable data management solution," said Yang Oon Pang, Chief Executive Officer of SCS Enterprise Systems (the SCS subsidiary that runs the LCC). "Sistina's GFS is a unique technology and
we are very proud that Sistina has chosen to partner with us for the Asia-Pacific region", he added.
"We've signed this agreement with Singapore Computer Systems because they understand what it takes to build enterprise class data management solutions while simultaneously lowering the customer's cost of accessing and managing
their data," said James Polt, Chief Operating Officer of Sistina. "Their experienced sales team recognizes the value of low-cost, scalability and
simplified management - attributes that Sistina's GFS can bring to their storage networking solutions. We are very pleased that Singapore Computer Systems has joined Sistina's Reseller Partner Program, and is committed to serving the Asia-Pacific market with us." Sistina's GFS is a widely acclaimed clustered file system for Linux that allows multiple servers on a storage area network (SAN) to have read/write access to a single file system on the shared SAN devices. Additionally, Sistina's GFS features many high availability file system components such as
journaling and failover capabilities, while providing affordable cluster configurations for companies that are running Linux applications.
