VAD Commtech Reselling DataCore In Ireland and UK

DataCore Software Corporation has recently signed an agreement with Commtech Solutions Ltd, an independent VAD in Ireland and the UK, to resell their SANsymphony-V and VDi, Virtual Desktop Server (VDS) software solutions. The announcement follows an 2012 overview of DataCore's distribution strategy and reach in Northern Europe and represents the final part of the review process. 

Bjarne Poulsen, regional director, DataCore, Northern Europe, comments: "Commtech is an established route to market for storage and virtualisation vendors in Ireland and has more recently been building an effective capability in the UK." He continued:  "Commtech's regional influence, strong storage and virtualization expertise and their deep desire to work with us to promote the new DataCore Virtual Desktop Server (VDS), will enrich their partners with a cost-effective Virtual Desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution at 75% reduced cost compared to alternative offerings. This will prove critical in the current Irish and the UK economic climate and will kick-start cash-strapped VDI projects."

Mark Walker, UK country manager for Commtech, agrees: "Developing a relationship with DataCore is key to our growth strategy. We are focused on developing the market for next generation storage and data management technologies, such as flash memory arrays and cloud-integrated storage. A number of our existing vendors are DataCore alliance partners, so there is a distinct synergy between the profile of our existing resellers and DataCore's target partners. It's a positive announcement for our existing customers, who will now have access to DataCore's SANsymphony-V as the integrating software layer to underpin and enable their storage virtualisation projects. VDI is also coming of age for our partners, and we expect the uptake on DataCore's Virtual Desktop Server (VDS) to be immediate."

Training of partners is on-going with a series of joint webinars throughout Q2 2013.
