Organizations, today, are always on the lookout for a partner that enables them to expand their businesses worldwide and assure customer trust. When Okinawa Cross Head (OCH) aimed to pursue new revenue opportunities by expanding its business reach worldwide, they chose to collaborate with HPE OEM to acquire HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 with long lifecycle service and extended warranty. This partnership has enabled OCH to provide small and medium businesses (SMBs) with local, appliance-based file services, integrated with cloud backup, all monitored and operated by OCH and supported globally by HPE OEM.
OCH has been experiencing an increased demand for cloud-based data storage & backup for mission-critical data. However, many small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) lack the IT resources and expertise to adopt cloud services, hence they choose to keep their data on-premises. OCH recognized the risk this places on valuable business data, therefore the company decided to develop a hybrid cloud solution specifically for the SMB market—nas2cloud, an appliance built on the HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10. OCH's collaboration with HPE OEM has further helped the former to expand its reach, thereby earning trust from overseas customers.
According to Keiko Ueda, Acting General Manager of Sales Department, OCH, “Based on our experience, HPE servers offer the highest quality. Many SMB customers have limited office space and the compactness of the HPE ProLiant MicroServer is ideal for them. Japanese SMB customers who have expanded their businesses to Southeast Asian countries do not have enough IT resources in their overseas branches and need an out-of-the-box solution like nas2cloud. The HPE OEM program helps us deliver and support our solution for these customers in Asia and worldwide.”
