Australian distributor, Distribution Central (DC), has entered a partnership which will see its SAN Systems business unit deliver EVault’s Cloud-connected services to Australian and New Zealand (A/NZ) resellers.

EVault is a subsidiary of storage giant, Seagate, which offers backup and recovery services for on-premises and online data protection and subsequent Cloud-based disaster recovery.

The agreement will see SAN Systems work with EVault’s Cloud Connected Resellers (CCR) and Cloud Connected Service Partners (CCSP) to deliver a portfolio which includes Cloud-based backup, disaster recovery, and storage-as-a-service solutions.

According to a statement, EVault’s technology will be used to boost DC’s CloudSelect platform to assist resellers in delivering Cloud-enabled solutions to customers.

CloudSelect was launched in July last year with the goal of helping resellers navigate what DC considers an often confusing and undefined Cloud market. It integrates NetApp Private Storage and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect, and is hosted in an Equinix datacentre.

“We partner with technology-leading vendors such as EVault to add to our existing portfolio of Cloud-ready solutions, thereby enabling us to enhance our DC CloudSelect offering,” DC managing director, Nick Verykios, said.

EVault regional director, Chris Robbiliard, said, “Since September 2011, when we established our presence in the region, we believed in the long-term opportunity for the uptake of EVault products and services. Today’s announcement with DC confirms our commitment to this market.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
