New EMC premier partner, Corpnet, has flagged ambitious plans to double the growth of its storage datacentre segment within the next 12 months.
Driven by the virtualisation boom, market demand for externalised cloud computing services for business over the last three months has fuelled the company’s growth ambitions. Increased cost and concerns with information lifecycle management also played a part.
Previously, Corpnet was only aligned with Hitachi Data Systems but the integrator recently became an EMC premier partner, to take advantage of the vendor’s collaboration with VMware and Cisco (VCE alliance) for cloud computing services.
Corpnet managing director, Agim Isai, said the company has built up capability in storage datacentres solely through Hitachi. By teaming up with EMC, the integrator can expand its range of offerings and bring a more holistic solution to the market.
Isai said he anticipated the growth would come from pending virtualisation projects such as datacentre externalised cloud services, which allows organisations to move from internal service management capabilities to services provisioned by Corpnet.
“The storage datacentre business segment makes up 25 per cent of our organisation,” he said. “We are looking at a $15 million revenue boost for this financial year.”
