Acer opens HDS storage channel

Acer is now reselling Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) storage products through its New Zealand channel.

In Australia the alliance has been in place for 18 months but has only just been made available to local partners.

Rod Bassi, Acer NZ country manager, says his company already sells its own storage products but describes the HDS range as complementary.

“It gives Acer another string to its bow. HDS has a wide product range catering from entry level upwards,” he says.

Bassi says the recent appointment of Brent Wilkinson as HDS sales manager is a factor in bringing the reselling agreement to these shores.

“With Brent being local it gives HDS feet on the ground. I’ve spent a lot of time strategising with him as to how Acer will be taking this to its channel.”

Wilkinson says the relationship with Acer opens up a different market for his company.

“Acer has a very different model and brings a couple of distributors and resellers to the table. That allows HDS to address the entry-level product suite suitable for small to medium companies,” he says.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
