Westcon-Comstor gets grilling with NetApp and Cisco

06 Jun 17

Westcon-Comstor’s CCL, Datacom, Ricoh and Citrus Consulting partners will be manning the barbecues with extra skills next summer after the distributor treated them to a Pitboss BBQ Masterclass recently.

The masterclass, at Miss Moonshines in Ponsonby, followed a FlexPod CIA training and enablement session, and saw the Westcon-Comstor resellers learning how to make their own OneSource – the ‘CNC Onesource original kettle-cooked to produce rich layers of sweet smoky flavour, with the perfect blend of Cisco, Netapp and Comstor’.

Westcon-Comstor says momentum around NetApp is growing following the Comstor and NetApp launch late last year, with partners progressing and achieving sales certifications.

The FlexPod CIA training coincides with the launch of NetApp Express Pack, with Comstor and NetApp offering partners a $500 Visa Prezzy card for each eligible NetApp Express Pack ordered until October 26, 2017.
