Mr. Dani Naor, Senior Vice President for Business Development at Zadara, recently visited the Philippines as part of a series of meetings with brand partners in the Southeast Asia region.

Zadara’s turnkey hardware/ software, combined with its pay-only-for-what-you-use model, help companies shift to a more agile business process without disrupting the features and functionality of existing systems being handled by IT teams of organizations.

Naor added, “The Philippines is a very important market. Sandz Solutions, our local partner in the country, has been with us for years. We have a lot of combined knowledge and innovations to meet customer’s need for cloud service in this fast-changing world. Zadara is the technology supplier while Sandz Solutions is the hybrid solutions service provider to customers.”

Sandz Solutions Philippines Managing Director Mr. Enrique Velasco explained, “While we are a primary provider of Zadara since 2016, we are also looking at an ecosystem of partners. You cannot do everything. The opportunity is there. To be able to scale this, we need to work with other partners. I think in the end, we will work hybrid via 100% channels."

As a strong advocate of software defined data centers, disaster recovery and business continuity with over 35 years of experience in the IT industry, Velasco has led the transition of the local team from being an IT reseller to a premier managed services provider with proven expertise in infrastructure optimization and IT business resiliency.

After building a sustainable business with Zadara, Sandz Solutions’ next goals include to continue to scale the business and adapt with all the innovations Zadara is offering in the market and to raise the bar of going to the application level offering like data modernization.
