FalconStor signs Ideal Enterprise Solutions for true value added distribution

Ideal Enterprise Solutions signed an agreement with network storage infrastructure software vendor FalconStor to ship its IPStor v3.0 software backed by a ringing endorsement of the power of distribution to handle enterprise class products.

Mark Walker, director of Ideal Enterprise Solutions, said: ‘FalconStor is an innovative company providing cost effective enterprise class products renowned for their functionality and manageability and IPStor v3.0 is a valuable addition to our portfolio.’

David Parker, FalconStor sales director for Northern Europe, said: ‘FalconStor identified Ideal Enterprise Solutions’ focus on fulfilling the needs of enterprise resellers and customers. We are impressed by Ideal Enterprise Solutions’ commitment to training, we want to leverage its infrastructure, its commitment to events and its innovative marketing. With this level of service it dispels the myth that resellers working through distribution are second-class partners. This is not about fulfilment. Our key interest is in Ideal Enterprise Solutions’ ability to work with partners in identifying and developing new customer opportunities.’

FalconStor IPStor v3.0 has been installed in the ProveIT Suite at Ideal Enterprise Solutions’ headquarters in Chessington, Surrey.

ProveIT is the UK’s first multi-vendor interoperable storage solutions Lab. Within the Suite, vendors, resellers and end users can test real life environments and evaluate proposed data storage solutions prior to installation. This capability allows proof of concept and interoperability testing, as well as actual performance evaluation.
