Distribution Central opens NetApp, AWS, Equinix Cloud demo facility

Hopes to push Cloud adoption within the Channel

Distribution Central has opened a new Sydney demonstration facility in a bid to drive take-up of its NetApp, AWS, Equinix hybrid Cloud solutions.

This is the distributor’s latest offering from DC CloudSelect, which enables reseller partners to transition their customers to the Cloud by offering Cloud-ready solutions (CloudPODs).

According to a company statement, it also has ‘configurator’ to easily quote CloudPODs or other Cloud solutions and a billing gateway to simplify the usage-based transaction process.

The NetApp Private Storage Solution for AWS demonstration is hosted at the Equinix Data Centre in Alexandria, and showcases the benefits and use-cases of its hybrid Cloud offerings.

It also gives partners the opportunity see inside Equinix’s data centre. DC will be hosting a partner demonstration tomorrow.

Following this launch, it will hold end-user demonstration sessions for partners who would like to invite their own customers.

According to a company statement, partners can contact their local SAN Systems account manager to book a demonstration session.

Distribution Central managing director, Nick Verykios, said the NetApp, AWS and Equinix collaboration allowed partners to see working solutions in action.

He also said it allowed a single a single aggregation point for support, configuration, transaction processing and optimised delivery.

“Following on from that collaboration we have been delivering enablement to ensure that partners can prove to their customers the benefits of a hybrid Cloud solution, and this demo centre is the latest in this enablement drive.”
