Melbourne-based distributor, HipGizmos, has become the second local distributor of Stardom RAID hardware from Taiwanese vendor, Raidon Technology.
The company currently carries single bay devices from Sarotech. The latest deal would be complementary to these offerings, HipGizmos national sales manager, Sean Mattheisz, said.
"Resellers have been looking to us to expand on that range," he said. "Raidon Technology does multi-bay RAID gear, which gives us a great opportunity to extend our reach from traditional retail outlets and go into the commercial space."
Although Stardom product had yet to reach Australia, Mattheisz already had sales staff out spruiking it to the market.
"Industries working with audio and video all want more storage space at an affordable level," he said. "We are seeing 1TB drives from Hitachi and Seagate and now we can offer this RAID gear from a reputable company at reasonable price points."
HipGizmos becomes Raidon Technology's second distributor in Australia, joining Sydney-based Silicon Memory Technologies.
The distributor also recently built a new website, enabling its resellers to order online.
