ONStor, a leader in scalable NAS solutions for open storage, has announced that Tectrade, a designer of enterprise-wide data and storage management solutions, has been appointed as its first channel partner for its advanced file services solutions in the UK.
Tectrade will offer ONStor's family of scalable NAS solutions, which enable 'islands of storage' to be consolidated while ensuring continuous data backup and instantaneous data restore. ONStor's advanced filer architecture also provides the flexibility to deploy multi-vendor storage arrays rather than the costly, proprietary storage found in other NAS solutions. Interoperable with disk arrays from a wide range of vendors - including IBM, EMC, HP, Hitachi, LSI, and 3PAR - ONStor solutions allow IT managers to cost-effectively get the most out of existing assets and buy the exact storage that best meets their needs today.
"Our customers need cost-effective solutions that let them store, manage, and protect their rapidly expanding data sets - they also want to maximise existing storage resources whenever possible," said Andy Slater, sales director, Tectrade. "With ONStor's solutions we can now offer businesses an affordable NAS solution that lets them grow their capabilities without adding management complexity."
ONStor's product family also simplifies management with unprecedented scalability that allows throughput and capacity to grow within a single environment. Unlike competing solutions that add discreet 'islands of storage' as requirements expand, ONStor solutions scale to petabytes of capacity and gigabytes per second of throughput, delivering increased capabilities without increased complexity.
"Tectrade's appointment is evidence of ONStor's commitment to expand its reach through the channel into new markets and geographies," said Andy Pinkard, UK MD, ONStor. "Storage is a buoyant market and ONStor offers a complementary offering that provides customers with best of breed solutions that can be easily adopted and integrated into their existing storage environment."
