Distribution Central takes on Fusion-io

22 Oct 14

Distribution Central has signed an ANZ distributon deal to bring a select range of SanDisk's Fusion-io data centre acceleration solutions to market.

The deal will see Distribution Central handling the Fusion ioMemory solutions, SanDisk ION Accelerator all flash appliance, Fusion ioVDI and Fusion ioTurbine software, along with other select solutions.

Nick Verykios, Distribution Central managing director, says end users are increasingly looking to consolidate their data centre footprints and embrace advancements such as software defined networking, cloud, big data analytics and virtualisation.

“SanDisk's data centre acceleration solutions complement our existing data centre technology portfolio and supported by our channel services, partners are well placed to deliver real business benefits for their customers in the changing data centre market.”

SanDisk bought Fusion-io, a solid-state storage products company, in June.

Jesse Zhang, SanDisk vice president of Asia Pacific commercial sales and support, says Distribution Central's enterprise channel ecosystem will help the vendor further expand availability of the products and strengthen its ability to meet the demands of the ANZ enterprise markets.
