DataCore, Tech Data Partner

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization, business continuity and disaster recovery software solutions, today announced its new distribution agreement with Tech Data Corporation (NASDAQ:TECD), one of the world's largest distributors. The Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (AIS) Division of Tech Data Corporation which focuses on the server, storage and software solutions comprising today’s corporate data center – now distributes the full line of DataCore's cost-effective storage virtualization, disaster recovery, and business continuity solutions. Tech Data will educate resellers on the distinct advantages of DataCore’s solutions, including manufacturer independent storage virtualization, storage performance acceleration and automatic, fault-tolerant data protection. These advantages, inherent to DataCore’s software-centric approach, reduce downtime, maximize cost savings, and make storage a virtual resource that is easily managed within and readily aligned to virtual server and desktop infrastructures.

“Above all, the partnership with Tech Data will expose DataCore’s business continuity and virtual storage solutions to more top VARs throughout North America,” said Christian Hagen, vice president of sales for the Americas and EMEA, DataCore Software. “Tech Data already has extensive experience supporting VARs focusing on server virtualization technologies through its alliance with VMware as well as partnerships with HP and IBM. These VARs already understand the benefits of server virtualization, and that they are only able to realize half of the total sale potential by not providing a cost-effective storage virtualization and fault tolerant SAN solution to meet the needs of their server and desktop virtualization customers.”
