NextIO Takes Data Center Materials to Kazakhstan Market
NextIO, a company known for I/O consolidation and virtualization solutions, has taken a step into the Kazakhstan data center market, opening up the market to more than 16.5 million people. NextIO and KVINT, a wholesaler of data center equipment, such as server racks and the like, have banded together to market said equipment to any and every Kazakhstani company that may be interested.
Despite having miniscule numbers in population, Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world and holds the same position for economic market growth. The country holds massive amounts of oil and gas reserves, which has recently been put to use improving the government’s financial situation.
By 2015, it is believed that Kazakhstan will have the capability to bring in as much as three million barrels of oil each day, which would put the nation in the top 10 for oil production and exports.
NextIO has stated that its data center equipment provision is aimed at several industries: the gas and oil enterprises, Kazakhstan’s high performance computing companies, and the financial services market. HPC has recently entered the market as well, helping various companies deal with rapidly overwhelming amounts of data needed for the research and discovery of oil and gas prospects.
SGI has recently revealed that collaboration with French-based Total has taken place in order to develop and install the world’s largest supercomputer known in the economic world for calculating data and representation of said data in order for Total’s many geological researchers and scientists to garner a more complete view of the environment to be explored and tapped in to.
KVINT has stated that it plans on distributing I/O Maestro, vSTOR, and vCoure to the Kazakhstan market as soon as possible. All three of these objects are produced by NextIO with the intention of assisting in data processing and management.
