Stefan Hölzl Appointed as Regional Director Central Europe
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, USA and MUNICH, GERMANY - June 22, 2015 - Atlantis Computing®, the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage (SDS), today announced it has hired Stefan Hölzl as regional director, Central Europe. Hölzl's responsibilities will extend beyond the German-speaking market as the region includes all of Eastern Europe and Russia. Hölzl is a seasoned industry veteran, and before joining Atlantis, worked in various management positions at leading IT companies including Parallels, Symantec or AppSense. Based in Munich, Hölzl's first task will be to build a local sales team and establish relationships with new and existing German channel partners and enterprise customers.
Atlantis offers a groundbreaking SDS-solution for enterprises, Atlantis USX™, and recently launched the first economical all-flash hyper-converged appliance, Atlantis HyperScale™. Atlantis is building a bench of innovative partners in the DACH region to help customers deploy Atlantis SDS and deliver better performance at 60% lower total cost. With this high impact one-two punch, Atlantis is well positioned to disrupt the storage world.
Stefan Hölzl comments: "Atlantis USX is already deployed in mission-critical applications at major Fortune 100 enterprises and we see a wealth of new opportunities in the DACH region. Atlantis HyperScale brings the benefits of USX to the SMB market, so those organisations can benefit from the combination of both all-flash hyper-converged performance and freedom of choice in hardware. I am excited to build a local team and secure the right partners to provide Central European customers these benefits."
David Cumberworth, vice president of sales for EMEA said: "Stefan's appointment proves how important it is for Atlantis to have knowledgeable staff on the ground in such a developed market. Stefan is a vital new member of the team and he will not only establish our name in the SDS market in Germany but will be essential in developing our EMEA presence even further. We are delighted to have such an experienced veteran on board."
