Cisco signs up Datastor

10 Dec 10

According to Datastor, December will see a push to extend its product and service offering to include the sales and support of all Cisco data centre and Unified Computing Server products.

Chief Executive, Dave Rosenberg, said, “The partnership creates a strong alliance in the Virtual Computing Environment coalition from Vmware, Cisco and EMC, especially in the area of UCS, and adds an additional solutions focus to Datastor’s existing portfolio.”

Rosenberg said that he wants resellers to be able to better understand Cisco products in order to drive value out of the solutions that Cisco offers.

Cisco Regional Manager Jennifer Rutherford added, “Datastor is uniquely positioned to provide VCE and UCS solutions to customers through the New Zealand partner network.

“Since expanding our solutions in the data centre and server market earlier this year, we have been successful at growing our share of the market and we are expanding our capacity to meet that growing demand.”

She continued, “We see there is a great deal of scope for additional growth in this market which is in a key transition. This transition is both from a technology and a customer requirements perspective which provides the potential for our distributors and partners in the channel to work with customers to provide real benefit and outcomes delivered through these technologies.”
