Boston, MA and Paris, France
Nuage Labs SAS, the leading developer of cloud storage gateways, and Farpoint Ventures LLC, a leading provider of venture finance and international sales and marketing outsourcing services, announced today that they have entered into a three-year agreement to develop the Asia Pacific market.
Under the agreement, Farpoint Ventures will act as an extension of Nuage’s sales and marketing team to recruit and sign distributors, value added resellers and systems integrators to resell Nuage’s cloud storage technology in Japan. Farpoint will also be responsible for technical support through its Tokyo office.
“Our service allows customers to profit from all the power of our unique mirroring feature, making it possible to store data simultaneously on multiple public or private clouds,” said Raphaël Nicoud, CEO of Nuage Labs. “Our gateway also offers transparent encryption of data before it is stored on the cloud, thus eliminating the risk of data falling into the wrong hands. Finally, our gateway offers protocol translation from legacy protocols allowing you to connect your existing legacy apps directly to the cloud with no modifications required.”
“More and more enterprises are moving data to the cloud in Asia,” said James Ryan, Managing Partner of Farpoint Ventures LLC. “Nuage’s Cloud Gateway allows them to take advantage of the cost saving of cloud storage while eliminating the security risks and cost of retrofitting old applications.”
Farpoint Ventures has already secured a major Japanese electronics manufacturer as the first customer of the Nuage Labs Cloud Gateway in Japan. Nuage Labs CEO Raphaël Nicoud will be presenting the Cloud Gateway solution at a seminar in Tokyo on November 11, 2013.
