Distribution Central has signed a deal with Syncsort to distribute NetApp Syncsort Integrated Backup (NSB) locally.
NSB is a backup solution that features snapshots, replication, mirroring, deduplication and clones with Syncsort’s backup and recovery technologies into a single, integrated solution.
Distribution Central will be the first distributor to handle the product in the Australia and New Zealand region.
Distribution Central managing director, Nick Verykios, sees NSB as a complementary addition to the distributor’s vendor portfolio in A/NZ.
“Syncsort’s strong commitment to the channel as well as Distribution Central’s sales and technical expertise form a powerful combination that will enable resellers to generate additional revenue for their existing NetApp business and sell into new accounts,” he says.
As part of the deal, Distribution Central will be responsible for delivering NSB together with its own end-to-end channel support services.
These services will include pre-sales technical support, post-sales field support, online configuration tool, online partner portal, renewal and asset management, training and education programs and channel marketing programs.
