Juniper Networks has awarded Datastor its ANZ Distributor of the Year prize at this year’s trans-Tasman partner summit in Sydney, held in late July. According to Juniper, Datastor’s award was based on three main criteria: the number of new partners signed, business growth and growth in certifications. Datastor managing director Dave Rosenberg says the award recognises its strength in the networking space. “This is a fantastic achievement for Datastor and the Juniper team. It is a great result, not only beating our competitors in New Zealand but also in Australia and is a strong endorsement for our networking business.” Datastor also recently won the Symantec Distributor of the Year award for Asia Pacific and Japan, and was given an All Star award from Websense.
