VST ECS Phils Inc inks new distribution agreement for Diamanti solutions

With this partnership, VST ECS will help Diamanti extend the reach of its solutions to IT customers, businesses, and consumers through VST ECS’s broad ecosystem of channel partners.

Diamanti Inc. appointed local ICT distribution leader VST ECS Phils., Inc. as its newest distributor with the aim to establish its presence in the local market through the distributor’s channel network.

Diamanti is the creator of the first bare-metal hyperconverged platform for Kubernetes and containers. It offers hardware and software solutions that address the growing need to modernize IT infrastructure while delivering transformational application performance and reducing data center footprint and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for customers. The company also recently announced Diamanti Spektra 3.0, making it the first and only multi-cluster, multi-cloud Kubernetes solution that meets enterprise IT requirements for operating and managing stateful applications. With Diamanti Spektra 3.0, enterprise customers have one flexible solution to deploy, replicate, and migrate cloud-native applications across bare metal and public cloud infrastructures.  

With this partnership, VST ECS will help Diamanti extend the reach of its   solutions to IT customers, businesses, and consumers through VST ECS’s broad ecosystem of channel partners.

The Diamanti solutions will benefit organizations that are running high-performance applications such as    databases, messaging apps, analytics or even AI. In addition, Diamanti helps organizations embracing microservices architecture and moving to containers by simplifying   the journey while bringing down overall costs and drastically improving application performance.

For the past 20 years that VST ECS leads the ICT distribution industry, it has always focused on partnering with brands that represent innovation, quality, and business transformation. This is to ensure that its channel partners are given only the best product and solutions offerings. Its new partnership with Diamanti will add a new dimension to its current offerings and underscore its market position as a distributor of powerful solutions that solve even the most complex IT problems. 

 Diamanti will help VST ECS bring to focus the fast-growing segment of containers and Kubernetes. Paul Leow, Partners & Alliances for Diamanti Asia Pacific, China and Japan added that, “As the industry’s only purpose-built HCI platform for containers and Kubernetes, Diamanti provides a compelling value proposition of allowing enterprises to quickly setup their container infrastructure within a day as opposed to weeks or even months using alternative solutions. This allows IT professionals, developers, IT operations, and Infrastructure teams to focus their efforts and spend time on more important tasks. In addition, Diamanti drastically improves the performance of IT applications and brings down the TCO for the enterprise at the same time.”

Commenting on the partnership, Jimmy Go, VST ECS president and CEO, said, “The distribution agreement will further expand the company’s reach in the domain of containers and Kubernetes. It also aims to be the Top Kubernetes Distributor in the Philippines. This is a unique product currently available in the market. Every purchase includes hyperconverged hardware (server and storage) and a platform solution that enables a quick and agile hybrid deployment.”

As enterprises recognize the need to accelerate their digitization efforts and embrace the microservices architecture amidst the rapid changes brought on by global events, Diamanti solutions will help businesses remain competitive.
