Silver Peak Oceania director, Brian Grant, said Vadis was selected on the basis of its in-depth understanding and experience in storage, data protection and disaster recovery.
Vadis systems director of business recovery, Bart Steanes, said the partnership created an opportunity to sell and support a storage-complementary product, as the current market in this area was under-serviced.
Vadis highlighted opportunities in areas such as corporate and government users experiencing performance or cost issues with their disaster recovery network; carriers that sell WAN or disaster recovery solutions, but don’t own their own infrastructure and system integrators offering bundled disaster recovery solutions.
Recently, Webroot severed ties with Vadis Systems after it could not meet its expectations.
In other news, Silver Peak, also appointed Peter Skarlatos as systems engineering manager Oceania, to help accelerate the company’s growth in the region.

Prior to joining Silver Peak, he consulted to enterprise clients such as AAMI, Bluescope and Government, helping them to design, build and operate complex network environments.
