Security, networking and storage distributor Cloud Distribution is has added flash memory manufacturer Memblaze to its growing line-up of vendors.

Founded in 2011, the Chinese firm produces high performance PCIe flash memory solutions. The distie, which will sell Memblaze through partners via its dedicated storage division, says the US firm is disrupting the flash memory space.

“Not only is it faster than anything I’ve seen in the market, it’s also a highly scalable, industrial-strength solution at a price point that delivers meaningful ROI for customers,” says Bruce Hockin, director for Cloud Distribution Storage.

“It is a simple product that solves a simple challenge – keeping up with the demand of high speed data processing at an affordable price. It’s also an important business enabler that delivers substantial value and therefore a great solution for partners to take to market.”

The distributor argues that traditional storage devices are struggling to keep up with not only the volume of data but also the increased demand for high speed data processing – while flash technology has fallen to a price point which makes it more accessible to a wider range of customers.

Cloud Distribution CEO Scott Dobson has previously spoken of the firm’s mission to introduce “disruptive, innovative security and networking technologies to the UK”. Memblaze joins similarly disruptive storage vendors such as DataCore, Talon Storage, NexGen and Maxta in the Cloud Distribution stable.

“Our flash solutions, significantly improve ROI, enabling customers to not only run their operations more productively and process data more faster and smarter, we also help them to more effectively sweat their assets and get more out of their software estate,” says Ron Macleod, VP EMEA business development, Memblaze.

“The technology is more relevant to a broader audience and you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to buy it. Therefore Cloud’s partners will be able to make strong margins especially as we have a 100 percent channel policy.”
