“Connected Data has identified the need for on premise file sync and share solutions that provide the easy mobile access and collaboration tools of public cloud services but without the security and privacy issues,” said Mark Walker, country manager UK, Commtech, “Our resellers are looking for ways to differentiate their offering to the end user and with the Transporter for Business solutions we can provide them with a technology that complements their existing vendor portfolio. Resellers can quickly benefit from a significant incremental revenue stream, by expanding their footprint within existing accounts and furthering their stance as trusted advisors.

Commenting on the partnership, Russell Johnson, COO, Connected Data, stated: “Transporter is the only cloud file sync and share solution that synchronises with existing NAS storage systems like NetApp and offers channel partners a real differentiator as well as an additional revenue stream that is 100% complimentary to their existing vendor portfolio . This positioning meant we wanted and needed a VAD with experience of taking disruptive technologies to market. Commtech is known for successfully taking emerging technology to the next level, and they specialise in the storage sector. So for Connected Data, Commtech was the perfect fit.

Transporter works with existing NAS systems and file servers – giving IT managers control of their data and users the flexibility and ease to access and share files across their computers and mobile devices. With Transporter, organisations leave their files where they are and sync files with their existing storage solutions.

All Transporters are compatible with one another, so businesses can leverage any combination of appliances to achieve their file sync and share objectives for efficiency and business advantage.
