Westcon-Comstor Inks Storage Distribution with X-IO in ANZ

Westcon-Comstor, the value-added distributor, has announced an agreement with X-IO Technologies. Resellers across Australia and New Zealand will have access to X-IO’s full product range, underpinned by its Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) and iglu architectures.

The deal gives resellers another option for storage solutions supporting data center and cloud initiatives.

“Westcon-Comstor ANZ offers a unique value proposition for resellers looking to drive data centre and cloud practices,” said Dave Rosenberg, Westcon-Comstor VP, ANZ. “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.”

X-IO offers hard disk drives (HDD), real-time hybrid or all-flash with enterprise SSDs and HDDs.

Tim Cullen, vice president of global sales operations, X-IO, added, “Data center 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.”
