ANY reseller with a Datastor drive exchange warranty may now be eligible for a $100 rebate for tape drives.
“Datastor recognises that replacing a failed drive is a real business cost to resellers and wants to do something to help,” says Dave Rosenberg, Datastor sales manager.
Rosenberg believes this offer to be unique in the channel and says it came about after conversations with cust-omers.
The rebate is redeemable on all brands of tape drives and autoloaders where a technician has gone onsite to install a replacement.
Additionally Datastor guarantees a same-day replacement for faulty hardware.
Rosenberg says the programme will be heavily promoted at Datastor Forum later this month when staff will be giving away $100 bills throughout the day.
Forum is the highlight of a busy year for Rosenberg, who says his company is going through massive growth.
Last month unified data management provider Commvault announced a 100% increase in regional sales and Rosenberg believes his team had a lot to do with that success.
“Datastor is the sole New Zealand distributor of Comm-vault and it’s been a huge product for us. It’s a case of the right product targeted at the right space and is perfectly suited to the local market.”
He is particularly pleased with the appointment of Richard Sullivan as Commvault country manager.
“It’s excellent news. Having someone on the ground really adds value to what we do.”
