“Accton is excited to partner with Midfin Systems. Not only do they have deep expertise and experience with modern datacenters, but we are also amazed to see how well they have executed on their vision. Accton and Midfin Systems have already been working together, and we are pleased to take the relationship further through this initiative. We are confident that the UCI solution built by combining our expertise will increase agility and performance of application workloads while eliminating complexity and lowering the overall TCO (total cost of ownership) for modern datacenters.” CC Lee, the Sales VP and System Architecture Officer of Accton said about the partnership.
“Midfin Systems is excited to take the relationship with Accton to the next level. We are laser-focused on customer value-proposition and building strong strategic partnerships with like-minded companies. We started working with Accton, as our partner, on our flagship distributed fabric controller product, which is now available. We have been very impressed with Accton’s system expertise and their commitment to the partnership. Together, I strongly believe we can bring about a disruptive solution to the market that packs value for our customers in a turnkey form-factor.” Said Suyash Sinha, Founder & CEO of Midfin Systems.
