Ingram inks deal with storage management firm

May 14, 2013

Distribution titan Ingram Micro has inked a deal with enterprise storage management specialist Actifio.

Actifio’s Copy Data Storage (CDS) appliances are designed for the management of backups, virtual machine snapshots, archives, and test data. The appliances are also hardware-agnostic, enabling customers to use existing storage hardware.

CRN_logo“Actifio’s technology is unique,” said David Lenz, senior director, enterprise technology group at Ingram Micro Australia, in a statement.

“Because of its innovative approach to managing copy data by eliminating multiple copies and radically simplifying data management it can deliver really significant savings to customers through reduced storage requirements, fewer software licenses, and lower management and network costs.”

Budd Ilic, Actifio’s regional director, Australia & New Zealand, said Actifio has already notable successes with Australian customers, and this distribution agreement with Ingram Micro is the logical next step in expanding the company’s presence in this market.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with Ingram Micro to bring new resellers on board and grow Actifio’s awareness and market share,” he said. “We offer very strong support to our channel partners, and it was important to us to partner with a distribution partner with both the breadth of reach and the technical capability to help us to grow a strong channel partnership and develop this market.”
