Cloud Native Obsidian Offers Secure, Flexible and Cost-Effective Alternative to Public Cloud Storage Platforms

SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 11, 2022 – Viking Enterprise Solutions, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced the launch of Cloud Native Obsidian (CNO), an on-premise storage solution that provides enterprises with complete control of mission critical and frequently accessed data. CNO addresses the enterprise sector, delivering easy-to-manage, cloud based solutions to market segments including the media/entertainment, video surveillance, backup and archive, and enterprise file services sectors.

Dramatic growth in unstructured data has challenged enterprises to pay unpredictable storage fees to public cloud providers, while also having to deal with performance and control issues. CNO is an on-premise storage solution designed to provide enterprises an economical and flexible storage alternative to public cloud solutions.

“We’re excited to expand our position in the storage market with this comprehensive solution that meets the unique needs of enterprises and reduces operational expenses,” said Mark DeVincent, SVP and GM of Viking Enterprise Solutions. “CNO was specifically designed to present an appealing proposition to the channel in the form of an attractive, more secure, all-in-one solution that delivers cloud benefits on-premise.”

Based on a cloud native and object-and-file storage architecture, CNO’s compatibility with public cloud platforms enables businesses to deploy a hybrid cloud strategy while reducing operational expenses. The solution simplifies storage implementation by providing flexibility, geo-redundancy, data durability, reliability and scalability at predictable costs.

CNO is now available through VES distribution partner Climb Channel Solutions. For more information, please contact
