Distribution Central and NetApp expand partnership

Deal that was already in place in Australia is brought over to New Zealand

Distribution Central and NetApp have signed a partnership that will see the distributor delivering NetApp's storage and data management solutions to the New Zealand channel.

“Distribution Central has successfully delivered NetApp solutions to the Australian channel for four years and was last year appointed distributor in Singapore. We have enabled the NetApp channel through our extensive reseller support services and our goal is to extend this success to the New Zealand reseller channel,” says Nick

Verykios, Distribution Central's managing director.

Verykios says the extension of the deal into New Zealand is a "logical next step" for both companies. “Distribution in New Zealand is a logical next step for both Distribution Central and also NetApp, as we can draw on our experience, resources and innovative custombuilt online tools, solutions and services to better enable and support the New Zealand NetApp channel, such as our online FlexPod configurator and DC PodFactory pod configuration and staging service."

Distribution Central also offers NetApp’s NZ partners several cross-sell opportunities available through complementary vendors including Quantum, Cloupia, Syncsort, Riverbed and Varonis.

“Following NetApp’s success with Distribution Central in the Australian market, regional alignment with a single distributor across Australia and New Zealand was the natural next step. We are confident that streamlining our partnership with Distribution Central regionally will further improve our ability to support the reseller channel,” says Todd Parsons, channel and marketing director, NetApp Australia and New Zealand.
