Reading, UK, 15 March 2007 ? DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualisation and management software, today announced that DNS, a trade-only distributor of networking; storage; servers; security and virtual infrastructure products in Denmark and Sweden, has been appointed as a distributor for all DataCore solutions.
“Adding DNS as one of our distribution partners is a significant value-add for expansion of DataCore?s channel into Scandinavia,” said Nick Broadbent, UK MD & EMEA Operations (Post Sales), DataCore Software, “It?s a market that has matured dramatically over the past 2 years in terms of adoption of virtualisation technology, and this relationship will allows us to reach partners via a distributor that specialises in recommending the entire virtual infrastructure. We are confident of a long and successful relationship with DNS.”
“Our resellers need a storage virtualisation vendor with vision, stability and cost-effective suite of virtualisation solutions that truly span from the SME to the enterprise. At DNS, our Virtual Infrastructure division has seen adoption of virtual server sales soar through vendors like VMware. So the selection of DataCore (who does to disk what VMware does to servers), seems a natural addition to our portfolio.,” said Viktoria Svedebäck, managing director for DNS Sweden. “And because virtualisation offers our customers enriched margin and professional service capabilities, we know that the relationship with DataCore will provide a winning combination.”
DNS has dedicated networking; storage; servers; security and virtual infrastructure divisions and sells to a network of over 300 resellers across the two countries. Its progressive marketing and communications to the channel will also provide one of the best routes to market for the new version of SANsymphony Enterprise Edition 6.0 launched in February 2007.
DataCore?s SANvantage Partner Programme provides the backbone from which Swedish and Danish resellers can optimise storage virtualisation sales with enhanced sales, marketing and technical programmes. Resellers interested in becoming a SANvantage Partner should email: email@example.com.
