“Considering the financial and business impact a disaster would have on Leighland Christian School, we recommended SimpliVity as the right solution to substantially reduce the impact of a disaster by meeting their requirement for limited downtime and near zero data loss. HPE acquired SimpliVity during the term of Leighland’s disaster recovery planning leading to further confirmation that their investment in this quality solution was the correct decision knowing that the start up was backed by a strong Tier 1 vendor.”

“Leighland 1 Hyperconverged solution,” Griffith added. “We are confident that this acquisition will generate an increasing level of interest, by businesses across Tasmania, in a solution that can assist with streamlining operations, improving agility and mitigating business risk.”

Anderson Morgan sees the new HPE SimpliVity offering positioning it to deepen their engagement with Arrow ECS ANZ, the original distributor for HPE SimpliVity across ANZ, Griffith added, with all companies in the supply chain benefitting from the newly aligned companies. “Arrow ECS ANZ is great to work with. They offer excellent, prompt, service, and have been a partner for more than four years.”
