Avnet Technology Solutions launch a series of Storage Solutions to simplify storage infrastructure sales

Avnet Technology Solutions Ltd has launched a series of packaged Storage Solutions to help business partners in the UK offer simplified storage solutions to customers.

As companies struggle to cope with increasing mountains of data and the often complex and demanding tasks of storage, back-up and disaster recovery, channel partners are more and more called upon to provide an instant storage solution. However it is not that easy.

Working in conjunction with IBM, Avnet Technology Solutions has initially put together three Storage Framework Solutions with business requirements and budgets in mind. The first three Framework Solutions are:

• Storage for Simplicity
• Storage for Growth
• Storage for Optimisation

Matthew Gower, Vice President of sales UK and Nordic at Avnet Technology Solutions said, “Avnet is focused on helping business partners provide complete solutions around storage so we know just how important this area is, but equally how confusing it can be. There are so many different components to think about from SANS (storage area networks) to cabinets to hold the hardware in. Therefore to help our business partners deliver a simplified message the Storage Solutions are designed to provide a solution depending on the customer’s business requirements. A medium sized company growing quickly will have different storage needs to a smaller on demand business, operating 24 x 7 x 365. Storage for Growth would suit the first company where as Storage for Optimisation would be better for the second company.”

The new Avnet Storage Framework Solutions are based on IBM storage hardware and software including IBM Tivoli Storage Manager family offerings.
