Avnet and Syncsort Enhance Reseller Data Protection Offerings
Avnet Technology Solutions has joined forces with Syncsort to help VARs increase their data protection offerings. Specifically, the partnership is focused on virtualized environments that are — no surprise here — leveraging Syncsort’s backup storage and NetApp. Here’s the quick details…
Syncsort’s BEX data protection software is now available to Avnet partners in the US and Canada. NetApp reseller partners can also provide combined offerings of NetApp and Syncsort solutions, which Avnet believes will help customers solve backup and disaster recovery issues.
According to Avnet — and now immediately available — “the combined Syncsort and NetApp offering reduces backup time and impact by 90 percent, provides instant data recovery, and offers extremely fast, comprehensive disaster recovery capabilities…[while significantly reducing] storage hardware costs.”
Those are lofty claims. We’ll be watching to see how VARs react.
