Datastor hitches up with SNIA as a partner

Datastor has become the first local partner of the ANZ Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). Based in the US with chapters globally, SNIA is an association of storage and information management vendors, channel partners and end-users who are interested in promoting the use of storage networking and information management.

Datastor pre-sales consultant James Knapp says SNIA membership is important.

“We’re a value-added distributor and we hold a lot of different vendors’ products in the storage area.”

The company will be hosting SNIA training on storage networking management and administration from December 3 to 7 in Auckland.

“It’s looking at storage networking principles, but not from any particular vendor point of view. The training will cover what you need to do in storage networking and what are the standards involved. So people can be aware of the standards that are available and design solutions based on best practices and methodology,” says Knapp.

Numbers for the course are limited to 12 with seven spots already taken.

“Because it’s an open industry, our vendors such as IBM will be taking part as well as distributors and resellers. The course is a lead on to the certification exams that people can take. There are different levels of certification you can achieve in terms of management, architecture or basic administration. Taking part in this course means people can sit the first two of three exams for certification.”

He adds that being part of SNIA has benefits both for Datastor and resellers.

“You get to hear about the development of storage standards at the forefront and get involved with partner days. Membership also gives Datastor access to the SNIA knowledge base and systems on storage standards.”
