OpenIO Extends Reach into Japanese Market with TwoFive Inc.

This new partnership expands the availability of the OpenIO SDS object storage solution in Japan.

Tokyo, Japan, and Paris, France – May 7, 2019.

OpenIO, an innovator in open source object storage, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with TwoFive, Inc., a leading Japanese security solutions provider. The distribution agreement enables OpenIO to expand the footprint of their object storage solution in Japan.

TwoFive, Inc. not only develops end-to-end messaging and messaging security solutions, but also provides a wide range of storage-based solutions for Japanese service providers and large enterprises. TwoFive’s partnership with OpenIO will allow the company to offer a comprehensive solution to the Japanese market that includes OpenIO SDS, a robust open-source object storage system.

OpenIO SDS includes a unique Conscience technology that provides smart and dynamic placement policies. This means that customers can easily scale without the need to rebalance their data, and at a lower TCO.  It also simplifies the deployment in on-premise or cloud environments, and because OpenIO SDS is hardware agnostic, it allows for a flexible expansion model.

OpenIO’s CEO Laurent Denel said, “We are excited to grow our presence in Japan, and the TwoFive partnership demonstrates our commitment to this market. Working with TwoFive give us access to a nation-wide distribution network through multiple Japanese Tier 1 system integrators.

Data is a key asset for our customers, and we are very pleased to be able to offer our Japanese customers a reliable, scalable, open source object storage solution,” says Nobuhiro Suemasa, CEO of TwoFive, Inc.
