Huawei Appoints Stratio as Technology Partner
AMSTERDAM, Nov. 5, 2015 – Huawei announced that Stratio has officially been certified as a Huawei Solution Partner (Technology) for Enterprise Data Centre Solutions.
Stratio, which pioneered the first Big Data platform using Apache Spark and integrating main NoSQL and SQL distributed databases, becomes Huawei’s first Big Data Technology Partner. The Stratio platform reduces complexity compared to other platforms, by giving customers control over all their Big Data software, and reduces Big Data time-to-value tenfold.
Huawei has certified Stratio’s Big Data and analytics solutions for inclusion in the Huawei Server and Storage portfolio. The joint Huawei and Stratio Solution will allow customers to have a highly optimised and easy-to-manage Big Data infrastructure solution stack.
“Huawei is dedicated to delivering customer-centric innovation. This new partnership will enable us to take this commitment one step further: thanks to Stratio’s world-leading Big Data expertise and can-do approach, we will be able to provide our customers with tools taking their specific needs and constraints into account,” said Leon He, President of Huawei Enterprise in Western Europe.
“At Stratio, we’re delighted to have been selected as a Solution Partner by Huawei, which will enable us to make our cutting-edge offering available to more customers in Europe and worldwide,” added Alberto Mendez, Head of Partnerships at Stratio. “Huawei is a global leader in the fields of data centers and Big Data. Combining this know-how with Stratio’s expertise in the field creates a win-win-win relationship for both our companies and for our customers.”
A Huawei Solution Partner is a partner that can embed Huawei’s products and solutions into its technologies, services and consultancy offerings. Stratio has been certified as a Technology Partner, one of three types of Solution Partner. The others are Service and Consulting Partners. Technology Partners include Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Independent Hardware Vendors (IHVs), Vertical Solution Providers, Interoperability Test Partners and Product/Technology OEM Partners.
Becoming a Huawei Solution Partner signifies Huawei’s endorsement for your products and solutions. Third-party partner offerings able to pass the test criteria are awarded the Huawei Solution Partners designation, a seal that means customers can trust the compatibility of the products and solutions jointly offered by Huawei and partner vendors.
