Nobody has got anything like this. This is unique in the industry. We have built a common cloud platform in the company that is based off of seven years of Aruba development. That platform has over 2 million devices under management, production clusters around the world in 11 different geographies. It is a full-blown SaaS platform that Aruba was adding applications on top of strictly for networking.

We built this entire common substrate that is bigger than just storage. It is glued into our IT systems, including our partner registry.

Partners and customers can create accounts. Partners can use different services or apps like you would if you were on a hyperscaler [platform].
