SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Storwize Inc., the only provider of primary storage compression solutions, today announced a major business expansion into the United Kingdom, bringing its best-of-breed primary data compression solutions into a prime global market.

The push into the UK is yet another milestone for Storwize in creating and consistently expanding upon its strong global presence for its unique STN-6000 data compression appliances. Developing a business base in the UK also gives the company access to other European Union countries.

Storwize has appointed Blair Innes to head the UK operations as the UK Country Manager. Innes is a veteran with more than twenty years experience in the storage industry. He comes to Storwize from Sun Microsystems UK, where he most recently was Sales Manager in the Storage Practice with responsibility for growing the large Commercial Group to an estimated revenue stream of 25 million. He was previously Managing Director for BlueArc UK, and has also held sales positions at Network Appliance and StorageTek, and was a worldwide storage evangelist in a prior stint at Sun.

“My decision to join Storwize was simply a case of recognising the opportunity of the right technology at the right time,” said Innes. “I have yet to see another technology that solves so many of the critical storage issues facing IT managers by providing across-the-board reductions in both capital and operational expenditures, as well as providing a sizeable reduction in a company’s carbon footprint.”
