Australian distributor, Distribution Central (DC), has entered a partnership which will see its SAN Systems business unit deliver EVault’s Cloud-connected services to Australian and New Zealand (A/NZ) resellers.

EVault is a subsidiary of storage giant, Seagate, which offers backup and recovery services for on-premises and online data protection and subsequent Cloud-based disaster recovery.

The agreement will see SAN Systems work with EVault’s Cloud Connected Resellers (CCR) and Cloud Connected Service Partners (CCSP) to deliver a portfolio which includes Cloud-based backup, disaster recovery, and storage-as-a-service solutions.

According to a statement, EVault’s technology will be used to boost DC’s CloudSelect platform to assist resellers in delivering Cloud-enabled solutions to customers.

CloudSelect was launched in July last year with the goal of helping resellers navigate what DC considers an often confusing and undefined Cloud market. It integrates NetApp Private Storage and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect, and is hosted in an Equinix datacentre.

“We partner with technology-leading vendors such as EVault to add to our existing portfolio of Cloud-ready solutions, thereby enabling us to enhance our DC CloudSelect offering,” DC managing director, Nick Verykios, said.

EVault regional director, Chris Robbiliard, said, “Since September 2011, when we established our presence in the region, we believed in the long-term opportunity for the uptake of EVault products and services. Today’s announcement with DC confirms our commitment to this market.”

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

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.
