StorONE Ramps Up Distribution of Unified Enterprise Storage Solutions With Tech Data Partnership

Sponsored by Businesswire

today announced that it has strengthened its distribution of its
software-defined storage (SDS) technology that delivers enterprise-class
storage, high performance, and complete data protection through a new
partnership with Tech Data, the world’s leading end-to-end distributor
of technology products, services and solutions. The deal expands the
availability of StorONE’s All Flash Array, Virtual Machine, High
Capacity and Secondary Storage solutions, while leveraging the powerful
support and service backed by Tech Data.

With the maturation of StorONE’s complete integrated enterprise data
protection offerings, the company seeks to ensure that its Software
Defined Storage (SDS) solutions are fully available in additional
marketplaces on the hardware and protocol of customers’ choice for
ultimate flexibility, ease of use and OPEX. Because StorONE’s product
line is completely hardware agnostic, Tech Data will be able to sell it
bundled with any drive (SSD, NVMe and HDD), any protocol (block, file
and object), any storage solution (AFA, high capacity, high performance
and virtual machine appliance) and now available at any location.

“We are excited to expand our product portfolio with four different
solutions derived from the same, single software offering,” said Joe
Cousins, vice president, Global Computing Components, Tech Data.
“StorONE’s Software Defined Storage (SDS) offerings are compelling
because of their ability to deliver high performance, high capacity and
complete integrated enterprise data protection. These data services, in
conjunction with the hardware solutions in our portfolio, offer
customers truly unified enterprise storage solutions that can be
customized to best meet their exacting needs.”

StorONE’s patented technology can support multiple enterprise functions:
reach breakthrough performance from AFA, SSD and NVMe solutions, create
high performance multi-application secondary storage systems, supply
persistent storage to virtualized environments, and/or use lower-cost
commodity components to provide high capacity low footprint solutions.

“StorONE is fundamentally a core technology company providing multiple
Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions, unlike other vendors that only
deliver niche products,” said Gal Naor, StorONE co-founder and CEO.
“Expanding to the channel and having a distributor like Tech Data help
with fulfillment is a winning proposition for all involved. Now
enterprises throughout North America have a new avenue to purchase and
implement four different StorONE solutions with the confidence of
execution that working with Tech Data provides.”
