Violin Memory strikes Kiwi chord with NZ distribution deal

Distribution partnership will provide New Zealand resellers with framework to maximise sales and increase market penetration.

Flash storage provider Violin Memory has signed a distribution agreement with Sapply in New Zealand, to provide the Kiwi channel with a range of all flash array storage solutions.

Terms of the A/NZ agreement will see Violin Memory tap into Sapply's distribution network comprising global PC manufacturers, system integrators and niche vertical resellers who help customers find the right technology solutions in the virtualisation, cloud, infrastructure and network spaces.

In addition, local channel partners are poised to also benefit from Violin Memory’s newly launched global partner program, which provides targeted product support, services and tools.

“This partnership reflects a strategic stride forward for Violin as our industry-leading flash arrays continue to gain market share in ANZ,” says Michael Burnie, Country Manager of A/NZ, Violin Memory.

“Sapply regularly helps its clients outperform the markets they serve by offering a diverse range of services.

“Our proven technology is an ideal fit for their commitment to client satisfaction and we are confident that Sapply is wholly dedicated to helping grow our business, making them the ideal distribution partner for us in ANZ.”

According to Gordon Taylor, Director, Sapply, Violin Memory is highly complementary to the distributor’s existing solutions portfolio.

“They offer unique flash storage capabilities that strike a balance between performance, reliability and affordability that, today, cannot be found elsewhere,” he adds.

“The demand for flash storage in A/NZ is growing rapidly and our goal is to provide our customers with a one-stop shop to meet their data storage needs from the ground up.”

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.
