Westcon-Comstor has announced an agreement with X-IO Technologies to distribute its storage offerings across the Australia and New Zealand markets.

Terms of the deal will see the recently rebranded distributor support X-IO’s global expansion into the growing marketplace by providing its customers with high-performance storage solutions.

Effective immediately, resellers across Australia and New Zealand will now have the ability to drive accelerated revenue via access to X-IO’s full product range underpinned by its Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) and iglu architectures.

For Dave Rosenberg, VP of A/NZ, Westcon-Comstor, the announcement ensures resellers can meet increased customer demand for high-performance storage solutions supporting datacentre and Cloud initiatives.

“Westcon-Comstor A/NZ offers a unique value proposition for resellers looking to drive datacentre and Cloud practices,” Rosenberg adds.

“We eliminate multiple distractions associated with choosing the right competitive Cloud platform.

“This translates into more time creating premier value-added datacentre and Cloud offerings - as well as faster revenue recognition. In order to accelerate both traditional enterprise datacentres and Cloud platforms, the infrastructure demands intelligent storage like X-IO.”

With a foundation based on adaptability, simplicity and balance, X-IO’s products are underpinned by its ISE technology which optimises price and operational efficiency.

As explained by Rosenberg, these solutions focus on both consistent and accelerated performance via hard disk drives (HDD), real-time hybrid or all-flash with enterprise SSDs and HDDs.

X-IO’s unique “Low Touch” approach and five-year warranty as standard is designed to “significantly reduce storage costs” - meaning strong customer environmental credentials via low power and cooling requirements as opposed to other high performance storage products.

“Datacentre and Cloud infrastructures demand the highest levels of availability and reliability - and effective, intelligent, and flexible storage is key to making that happen,” adds Tim Cullen, VP of global sales operations, X-IO.

“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.”

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.
