The distribution agreement enables OpenIO to expand the footprint of their object storage solution in Japan.
TwoFive develops end-to-end messaging and messaging security solutions, and also provides a range of storage-based solutions for Japanese service providers and large enterprises. Itss partnership with OpenIO will allow the company to offer a solution to the Japanese market that includes OpenIO SDS, an open-source object storage system.
