Software distributor, Infotronics, has expanded its virtualisation products portfolio with two new vendors, Veeam and VKernel.
Veeam produces software that allows users to better manage their virtual servers. Veeam Backup is a disaster recovery solution, specifically for VMware Infrastructure 3.
VKernel develops management tools addressing small and large virtual environments. VKernel's Capacity Manager Virtual Appliance identifies capacity bottlenecks on hosts, clusters and resource pools and is aimed at enhancing performance, lowering costs and simplifying virtual environments.
Infotronics will have access to the whole range from both vendors.
Technical director, Phil Lancaster, said he met VKernel at VMworld in San Francisco. At the same time, Veeam had been looking for a local distributor.
"It really broadens the offerings we have in the virtualisation space. We are focusing on providing add-on products to automate and maintain the virtualised environment," he said. "It gives us a much bigger footprint."
Lancaster said both product sets targeted medium and large-sized organisations with multiple VMware ESX servers.
"As the complexity of their VM environment goes up, both of these products become more important," he said.
Infotronics would provide reseller incentives around both vendor lines including training and support, Lancaster said.
