Java start-up Waratek inks deal with Intralink for Asia push
Java virtualisation specialist Waratek, one of the finalists in the Swift-backed Innotribe Challenge at this year’s Sibos in Dubai, has formed a partnership with Asia market access specialist Intralink to expand into Asia Pacific.
As well as the Innotribe final, the Waratek CloudVM for Java offering has been selected for the Fintech Innovation Lab, based in London’s Canary Wharf, and the company was recently named as a “Cool Vendor” for Application and Integration Platforms by Gartner.
Howard Tolman, director Waratek UK, said: “The APAC region represents a significant opportunity for Waratek as enterprises aim to improve their virtualisation. Intralink has well proven and established relations through its bilingual teams in Shanghai, Taipei, Tokyo and Seoul. Providing sector knowledge, contacts and local language support in these important markets is critical to our success”
Intralink vice president Asia, Jeremy Shaw, added ‘Waratek has a unique technology and compelling value proposition and we look forward to supporting the growth of their business in this part of the world’
The Waratek software overcomes some of the difficulties associated with running Java application in a virtualised environment, particularly in shared multitenancy environments.
