The distributor, which also recently announced agreements with cable manufacturerBelkinComponents and gaming manufacturer Interplay, is introducing a suite of TurboLinux products including TurboLinux Workstation 6.0, TurboLinux Server 6.0, TurboCluster Server 4 and enFusion 6.0 for the workstation and server markets.
Australian organisations such as AMP Asset Management, Boeing Australia and Monash University have embraced TurboLinux solutions, according the TurboLinux Australia/New Zealand general manager, Nicole Sztachanski.
"TurboLinux appeals to enterprise as our products allow for the integration of the customer's current IT investments as well as providing a robust, high-performance and cost-effective solution," she said.
Tech Pacific's announcement of its limited distribution agreement with Interplay coincides with the release of the gaming company's action title Messiah. The contract is Tech Pacific's first games publisher contract, outside of Microsoft.
"Tech Pacific has decided to be more aggressive in the edu-tainment and entertainment space," said software and retail manager Marlene Gant.
Resellers can also purchase Belkin Components cables and USB solutions, including the modular BusStation system for use on both Macintosh and PC. Belkin plans to expand its product line, offering at least seven new USB products in the next 12 months.
