Partnership gives ANZ resellers full access to high performance storage with unrivaled affordability, availability and simplicity
Sydney, Australia, 26 November, 2015 – Westcon-Comstor, a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data centre, and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, today announced an agreement with X-IO Technologies for the ANZ region. This new agreement supports X-IO’s global expansion into the growing marketplace with Westcon providing its customers with high-performance storage solutions.
Effective immediately, resellers across Australia and New Zealand will have the ability to drive accelerated revenue via access to X-IO’s full product range underpinned by its Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) and iglu architectures. The announcement ensures resellers can meet increased customer demand for cost-effective, high-performance storage solutions supporting data centre and cloud initiatives.
“Westcon-Comstor ANZ offers a unique value proposition for resellers looking to drive data centre and cloud practices. We eliminate multiple distractions associated with choosing the right competitive cloud platform. This translates into more time creating premier value-added data centre and cloud offerings – as well as faster revenue recognition. In order to accelerate both traditional enterprise data centres and cloud platforms, the infrastructure demands intelligent storage like X-IO,” said Dave Rosenberg, Westcon-Comstor VP, ANZ.
With a foundation based on adaptability, simplicity and balance, X-IO’s products are underpinned by its ISE technology which optimises price and operational efficiency. These solutions focus on both consistent and accelerated performance via hard disk drives (HDD), real-time hybrid or all-flash with enterprise SSDs and HDDs. X-IO’s unique “Low Touch” approach and five-year warranty as standard significantly reduce storage costs – meaning strong customer environmental credentials via low power and cooling requirements as opposed to other high performance storage products.
Tim Cullen, VP of global sales operations, X-IO comments: “Data centre and cloud infrastructures demand the highest levels of availability and reliability – and effective, intelligent, and flexible storage is key to making that happen. Backed by years of development and research, X-IO actually solves real-life storage problems facing partners and their customers globally. As a key distributor in the APAC region, Westcon-Comstor is a core element of our go-to-market; this will allow more resellers to seamlessly build successful cloud practices.”
