Skyera appoints IDS as A/NZ SSD distributor

Skyera: "Demand for vertically integrated storage platform at an all-time high".

Independent Data Solutions has been appointed primary A/NZ distributor for enterprise solid-state storage company Skyera.

IDS, a value-added distributor, will launch the Skyera platform at the upcoming CeBIT exhibition to be held in Sydney from May 5-7.

Skyera vice president global channel sales, Timm Hoyt, said demand for the company's purpose-built, vertically integrated storage platform was at an all-time high as it delivered "dramatic" opex and capex reductions for clients, while increasing performance by 10 times or more.

"We have quickly grown operations from our Silicon Valley origins to international markets, now including the A/NZ region in partnership with IDS.” he said.

According to a company statement, Skyera is backed by key technology and financial partnerships designed to position it at the forefront of the hyper growth in the solid-state storage sector.

Skyera’s SkyHawk platform has up to 44TB of native usable capacity in a 1U form factor, requiring less than 350watts to power.

IDS managing director, Ian Deane, said he was delighted to have Skyera as a strategic partner.

"They are a highly-innovative and impressive organisation with impeccable linage in developing ground breaking technologies," he said.

"Our team look forward to helping our partners and customers understand the value of this industry leading technology which has a cost to capacity and performance ratio never before seen in the flash array industry.”

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
