Compuverde announces partnership with Layer 8 IT-Services


Compuverde has signed its first Gold Partner in Sweden. Layer 8 IT-Services is a Swedish company that specializes in Software-defined data centers. Their innovative thinking and unique approach to new technologies ensures that their customer’s needs are met down to the letter. By being involved in the SDS industry from the very beginning they have attained extensive knowledge, making them pioneers in supplying SDS solutions.

Niklas Tungström, CTO at Layer 8 IT-Services says: “What really caught me first was how easy it was to set up the Compuverde cluster. Through our entire evaluation period we saw that the user friendliness and rich feature set in Compuverde was in a new league compared to what we have seen so far in the Storage industry. The ease of use really plays out when software is detached from the hardware and you add that extra step in the implementation. Especially when you are looking at unified storage which means covering all flavors of storage; NAS, SAN and Object Store in one solution."

Layer 8 IT-Services is based in Stockholm, the founders have more than 35 years of experience within the IT-industry. With staff in Linköping, Gävle, Umeå and their head quarter in Stockholm they cover the whole of Sweden from Malmö in south to Kiruna in north and multiple other countries. Serving smaller local companies to larger international corporations in over 13 countries.

Carl-Henric Möllerström, Vice President at Compuverde says: “As CTO Niklas Tungström and his team makes their due diligence before taking on any new vendor we at Compuverde are very happy to see that the evaluation was a success. With their extensive knowledge in SDS technology Layer 8 IT-Services is the ideal partners to collaborate with. We are in a very exciting phase and already have several opportunities with post-production companies and data centers.”
