DataCore Software and Fujitsu-Siemens Computers (FSC) announced a new partnership across Europe. With immediate effect, both companies will collaborate in distribution, marketing and technical support to optimize the experience for mutual customers and partners. The agreement is ongoing and has come about through the continued growth and market success of DataCore’s storage virtualization software projects and FSC’s IT-extensive hardware and project support.
The agreement focuses primarily in distribution and support, especially in the support of FSC reseller partners when they implement storage consolidation and SAN projects using DataCore’s SANmelody or SANsymphony solutions. Resellers, integrators and system vendors can utilize the technical support centers of FSC and can readily access information about products and developments, allowing them to reduce sales cycles and realize projects more efficiently. In addition, DataCore has been added to the Fujitsu-Siemens Computers catalog of recommended software solutions.
"The alliance partnership with a leading European IT-Infrastructure producer is an important step on the way to opening new markets," states says Siegfried Betke, Director Central Europe at DataCore Software GmbH. "FSC has already implemented many successful virtualization projects with our software, especially those seeking high-availability and disaster recovery solutions within tight budget constraints. The collaboration basically guarantees that with immediate effect, the best assistance with distribution, marketing and support, are available all out of one place."
