WHIPTAIL Taps NEI to Handle Manufacturing of All-Flash Arrays

WHIPPANY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

WHIPTAIL, the data storage-industry innovator powering faster and more energy-efficient computing for today's global businesses via its innovative flash storage arrays, has partnered with global manufacturer NEI to meet demand for WHIPTAIL's family of products.

NEI (News - Alert) provides application platforms, deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs worldwide. It is known for its expertise in storage, security and communications. WHIPTAIL chose NEI as its manufacturing partner because the company has extensive experience in solution design, manufacture, global logistics and lifecycle management. By leveraging NEI's qualified procedures and process, WHIPTAIL has been able to speed time to market for its storage arrays while minimizing the effort and resources that WHIPTAIL would otherwise expend, enabling it to concentrate on its core business.

"We've been shipping product for a little more than two years now, and have broken the 200 customer threshold," said WHIPTAIL CEO Dan Crain. "When we were a small company, we could handleour own manufacturing, but that's not the case anymore. NEI has a commitment to quality workmanship and very efficient business operations. They take pride in delivering and supporting a high-quality, reliable product, and that's what our customers expect."


For NEI, adding WHIPTAIL is another validation of its LEAD (Lifecycle Engine for Application Deployment) System, which includes all steps from design, integration, management, logistics and more. NEI's LEAD model is perfectly suited to help software developers like WHIPTAIL deliver and support powerful, affordable appliance solutions to meet their schedules and competitive performance criteria.

"Our customers range from startups to Fortune 500 enterprises, and each benefits from our engineering expertise and manufacturing capabilities to solve the numerous challenges involved in getting an application to market."

NEI manufactures WHIPTAIL's full range of all-flash storage arrays, including the ACCELA and the hyperscale INVICTA for customers worldwide.
