Canton, MA – July 16, 2014 – UNICOM Engineering, a leading provider of application platforms, deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs worldwide, today announced that SolidFire has selected its global manufacturing and logistics services for its all-flash storage systems.
SolidFire, the market leader in all-flash storage systems built for the Next-Generation Data Center, sought a partner that would enable it to keep pace with significant growth and increasing customer demand. In particular, SolidFire wanted an outsourced partner that could help it manage long lead-time components, negotiate pricing with third-party suppliers, and accelerate product time to market. SolidFire selected UNICOM Engineering based on its size, technical expertise, global capabilities and cost.
SolidFire experienced tremendous growth in 2013 due in part to growing enterprise demand for predictable, high-performance cloud storage infrastructure. Recently added functionality and protocol support enabled an even broader set of enterprise customers to leverage SolidFire’s agile, scalable and predictable storage infrastructure built on Dell platforms. Enterprise Strategy Group’s April 2014 Lab Review says, “If your organization is frustrated with the limitations of traditional storage for scale-out workloads and you’re striving to deliver IT-as-a-service from a next-generation data center, ESG Lab strongly recommends that you consider SolidFire for the enterprise.”
As a Premier Partner of Dell™ OEM Solutions, UNICOM Engineering provides unique server lifecycle expertise and support services that reduce costs and simplify hardware, which SolidFire will leverage to bring its Dell-based solutions to market. This trusted relationship enables UNICOM Engineering to collaborate with Dell OEM development teams to quickly resolve challenges, whether they be issues related to global certifications and regulatory requirements, to branding and trade compliance.
