RA'ANANA, Israel -- Exanet, the leading provider of software-based Network Attached Storage (NAS) solutions, today announced that it has made considerable progress in expanding its Channel presence through the addition of major reseller partnerships to its Partner Program, as well as the recent hiring of industry veterans Vernon Harrison and Sean Ooghe as N. American Channel Managers.
Exanet is gaining traction and momentum in the North American market place and attracting leading value added partners, as is evident in the recent signing of resellers offering Exanet-IBM joint solutions, including PCPC Direct Ltd., a CRN Fast Growth 100 solution provider for 2006; Levi, Ray & Shoup Inc., ranked by Software Magazine as one of the top 200 software companies in the world; Mainline Information Systems, IBM's top storage and the fastest growing US installer of IBM mid-range e-Servers; the Seven Group, an IT solutions integrator that designs, deploys and manages technology with a focus on data management solutions for digital entertainment; and Comm Solutions Company, a regional technological solutions provider with over 30 years experience in network services. These partnerships add to Exanet's existing family of strategic partners.
These relationships were, in many cases, initiated and enabled through Exanet's partnership with Arrow Electronics, a global provider of products, services and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic and computer products.
"As a value added distributor of IBM solutions, we are continuously searching out new and inventive products and leading-edge technology that help our customers grow their businesses, while also providing the ultimate support to ensure their total satisfaction," said Jack Gregory, Business Development Manager of Arrow. "Exanet-IBM solutions are particularly well regarded among many of our resellers and through this formal partnership, we are better able to ensure the solution's availability and provide maximum sales and marketing support to end-user customers throughout North America."
