HDS signs new storage deals

A GLOBAL relationship between three storage vendors is being extended to New Zealand.

Hosting and Datacentre Services (HDS) has established a direct relationship with backup and recovery software provider CommVault Systems and data protection and network storage provider Quantum. This reflects the global partnership the companies have with Hitachi Data Systems, which HDS represents in New Zealand.

The engagement was driven from Australia by Hitachi Data Systems, which owns a 49% stake in HDS. HDS will distribute CommVault software and Quantum tape drives bundled with Hitachi hardware and Cisco switches, plus its own services, as a package to its reseller channel.

However, HDS regional director Stephen Robins says the arrangement will not impede on the distribution channels of Datastor and Express Data, which represent CommVault and Quantum respectively, as it will focus on supplying the products in bundles.

The arrangement in New Zealand is unique as it includes a service element provided by HDS, he adds.

CommVault Systems Sydney-based regional director Gerry Sillars says the partnership with HDS does not change the company’s relationship with Datastor. And David Samuels, Quantum sales manager, states that HDS will only offer the products integrated into a complete storage offering, while ED sells individual units.
