StorONE Ramps up Distribution of Unified Enterprise Storage Solutions with Tech Data Partnership
Full Product Suite of AFA, VM, High Capacity and Secondary Storage Now Available Through Global Distributor
StorONE announced that it has strengthened its distribution of its software-defined storage (SDS) technology that delivers enterprise-class storage, high performance, and complete data protection through a new partnership with Tech Data, the world’s leading end-to-end distributor of technology products, services and solutions. The deal expands the availability of StorONE’s All Flash Array, Virtual Machine, High Capacity and Secondary Storage solutions, while leveraging the powerful support and service backed by Tech Data.
“StorONE is fundamentally a core technology company providing multiple Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions, unlike other vendors that only deliver niche products”
With the maturation of StorONE’s complete integrated enterprise data protection offerings, the company seeks to ensure that its Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions are fully available in additional marketplaces on the hardware and protocol of customers’ choice for ultimate flexibility, ease of use and OPEX. Because StorONE’s product line is completely hardware agnostic, Tech Data will be able to sell it bundled with any drive (SSD, NVMe and HDD), any protocol (block, file and object), any storage solution (AFA, high capacity, high performance and virtual machine appliance) and now available at any location.
“We are excited to expand our product portfolio with four different solutions derived from the same, single software offering,” said Joe Cousins, vice president, Global Computing Components, Tech Data. “StorONE’s Software Defined Storage (SDS) offerings are compelling because of their ability to deliver high performance, high capacity and complete integrated enterprise data protection. These data services, in conjunction with the hardware solutions in our portfolio, offer customers truly unified enterprise storage solutions that can be customized to best meet their exacting needs.”
StorONE’s patented technology can support multiple enterprise functions: reach breakthrough performance from AFA, SSD and NVMe solutions, create high performance multi-application secondary storage systems, supply persistent storage to virtualized environments, and/or use lower-cost commodity components to provide high capacity low footprint solutions.
“StorONE is fundamentally a core technology company providing multiple Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions, unlike other vendors that only deliver niche products,” said Gal Naor, StorONE co-founder and CEO. “Expanding to the channel and having a distributor like Tech Data help with fulfillment is a winning proposition for all involved. Now enterprises throughout North America have a new avenue to purchase and implement four different StorONE solutions with the confidence of execution that working with Tech Data provides.”
