Nextgen Distribution, today announced that it has joined the Nimble Storage Partner Network as a value added distributor in the New Zealand market.

Nextgen Distribution specialises in bringing emerging enterprise technologies to the reseller market and is focused on providing innovative solutions for partners and their customers.

The company will now assist in driving sales and market penetration for the Nimble Storage flash-optimised hybrid storage solutions among public and private sector enterprises.

“Nimble Storage is 100 per cent committed to the channel,” says Theo Hourmouzis, Director of Channel Sales, Nimble Storage.

“We believe enterprises should not have to compromise on performance, capacity, ease of use, or price.

"Therefore, we’ve built a partner ecosystem with over 900 partners worldwide to provide enterprises access to our innovative storage technology from their existing trusted partners.”

Nimble Storage’s hybrid storage architecture is engineered to address the industry's most pressing storage issues: delivering better performance and capacity at a reasonable price; providing integrated protection with rapid back up and recovery; and, reining in storage complexity.

The company's products are based on its patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) hybrid storage architecture that leverages fast read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives.

Nimble combines this flash-optimised architecture with Nimble InfoSight, a cloud based management service that delivers predictive support and operational simplicity through deep data analytics.

“At Nextgen we have watched the growth of Nimble Storage with great interest globally and since they entered the A/NZ market," says Terry Dunn, Managing Director Nextgen Distribution New Zealand.

"After a visit to Nimble’s San Jose headquarters we were convinced of its strong value proposition.

"We have observed the expanding customer requirements for performance based hybrid storage solutions and we strongly believe that Nimble Storage is well positioned to take advantage of this demand.

"We are very excited to now be a valued member of the Nimble Storage partner ecosystem and look forward to offering its solutions to our partners in New Zealand."
