Express Data has been added to the ranks of distributors for data protection and network storage provider Quantum Corporation. The deal will see Express Data covering Quantum’s M Series data protection products – ValueLoader, SuperLoader, M1500 and M2500 – across Australia and New Zealand.
“Quantum’s solutions add substantially to our storage offering for the reseller channel,” Express Data marketing and operations director, Peter Masters, said. “They complement many of our core focus technology groups and existing vendors.”
Quantum – also distributed by ACA Pacific, Lan 1 and Optistar – sees the deal as an opportunity to leverage Express Data’s relationships with leading tier-one and tier-two resellers. A detailed reseller communication program announcing the appointment will follow.
“The deal is mutually beneficial because they [Express Data] are looking to expand into storage, and data protection fits with that very nicely, and they have a good in-house technical base so they will be a good partner for us to work with,” Quantum product marketing manager Mike Sparkes said.
David Peach has been appointed Quantum product manager and a team of pre-sales engineers are available to answer reseller questions on integration.
