Renaissance gains Bak support

RENAISSANCE’S Apple division is moving into the backup and restore arena having just signed a distribution agreement with data protection specialist Bakbone.

Bakbone has an existing agreement with Datastor but says that is now on the backburner and will instead concentrate on this new relationship.

Steve Ford, general manager Apple Computer Division, says this is the first time his company has offered a storage product.

“This is a great opportunity for channel partners who don’t traditionally sell Apple to offer something different,” he says.

Ford says the first step is getting his own people and channel partners skilled up to sell Bakbone to a wide variety of customers.

“There will be a big push into the education market as schools are getting quite serious about infrastructure, all the way through to large organisations.”

Victor Koshka, Bakbone’s South Pacific territory manager, says NetVault scales from a single server through to hundreds.

“It’s also a cross-platform product so regardless of the system requirement all data can be backed up. Prior to this Apple users had to back up to something else but now that’s all changed,” he says.

Koshka describes Renaissance as a natural fit not only for the Apple product synergy but for its dynamic go-to-market strategy.
