IT management tools distributor, TrackITOnline, has established a new partnership with virtualisation and network management vendor, Xangati.
The US-based vendor supplies cost-effective software and hardware appliances that identify and manage both physical network and virtual resources in real time.
TrackItOnline director, Phil Lancaster, said the vendor was recommended by one of its partners.
“They [Xangati] were a very good fit in the virtualisation space and once we engaged with them we found that they wanted to be successful in this market. They’ve been very supportive and have agreed to sponsor an event coming up in July for CIOs and solutions architects. They’ve also committed to doing a partner event specifically on their product set in August.”
Lancaster said Xangati was very suited to larger VMware environments.
“One of their major strengths among others is the ability to understand and ensure complex environments,” he said. “While they’ve got licensing available for a single server environment, the majority of their deals are going to be in the more complex environments.”
“It provides us with a good differentiator tool because they do approach this area of the market differently. It’s not technically done like many other monitor and management tools are delivered and it gives us a very strong conversation to have with serious VMware players and enterprise customers that sit behind those people.
Xangati director for international operations, Greg Dumas, said it was impressed with TrackItOnline’s focus on virtualisation solutions.
“Top to bottom TrackITOnline is able to provide not only products that will help accelerate and better manage virtualisation projects for both VMware and Citrix users but will also provide complementary solutions inclusive of training, support, and service,” Dumas said.
“As Xangati are in the process of building our global presence, partnerships with highly focused distributors like TrackITOnline will be essential to our success.”
