Ingram Micro has signed a distribution agreement with Blue Medora, bringing the enterprise cloud and data centre management vendor to the Australian and New Zealand markets.

In addition, the vendor has cemented its move to the region through the opening of its trans-Tasman and Asia Pacific operation, based in Melbourne.

Headquartered in Michigan, the US-based vendor operates within the cloud system and application performance management markets, working with alliance partners such as IBM, Oracle and VMware.

“Blue Medora’s software turns every element of an IT ecosystem into a single, easily viewed and managed solution,” Ingram Micro general manager of Cloud and Software Services, Lee Welch, said.

“Its management packs let IT teams visualise every aspect of every platform and every system within an organisation’s infrastructure – all in real time.

“In today’s enterprise environment, especially with the ongoing shift to virtualised systems, Blue Medora returns genuine visibility and control to IT professionals.”

Specifically, Blue Medora is regarded as a key strategic partner by VMWare, which was an early investor in Series A and more recently the Series B funding for the company, a funding round which raised $US8.6 million.

Furthermore, VMware is now also promoting the Blue Medora product catalogue globally through all its channels and with Ingram Micro subsidiary Promark Technology in the US market.

“The unified business intelligence and data analytics capabilities delivered by VMware’s vRealize and Blue Medora’s plugins allow customers to standardise and automate resource management across hybrid cloud environments,” Blue Medora managing director of APJ, Craig Stockdale, added.

“However, to maximise the benefits available with our software, ideally you require a strong reseller channel with the necessary skills for integration.

“Ingram has both the in-house expertise and the specialist channel partners to help their government and enterprise customers reap these very real operational rewards in a virtualised infrastructure environment.”

Stockdale said that while the vendor already has an “extensive catalogue” of management packs that plug into VMware’s vRealize Operations, all of which integrate with cloud offerings from Amazon, Netapp, Cisco Systems, Lenovo, HP, Dell, Oracle, SAP, SAP Hana, Citrix, IBM Tivoli, KVM, Microsoft and F5 Networks, it’s not resting on its laurels.

“Our goal is to support all relevant platforms and we will soon be releasing a series of monitoring and management plugins specifically for the Amazon AWS environment, following our recent releases for Nutanix, Nimble, Simplivity, Oracle DB and SolarWinds,” he added.
