Bell Micro has announced a distribution agreement with Pillar Data Systems.
The agreement will see the two companies build upon an existing relationship in the US to extend the Pillar Axiom storage solution to Bell Micro's reseller partners here in the UK.
The partnership will provide Bell Micro's reseller base with the opportunity to offer customers a highly scalable application aware data storage solution optimised for Oracle, Virtualisation or email management environments. Pillar Data Systems, in turn, will be able to leverage Bell Micro's installed partner base, enterprise storage skills and partner services to expand its rapidly growing business throughout the UK.
Chris Jones, VP EMEA at Pillar Data Systems, said: “We have chosen to partner with Bell Micro as a result of the company's reputation in the market and its focus on further developing its Enterprise storage portfolio.”
Richard Carpenter, european general manager, Enterprise Storage Division at Bell Micro, said: “Organisations of all sizes are increasingly focused on understanding the value of data, yet still require advice and guidance. With this in mind, Bell Micro will be working with Pillar Data Systems to ensure reseller partners are educated on approaches to managed storage, as well as understanding how best to deliver these new solutions.”
