Dicker Data (ASX:DDR) says it is well placed to help Cohesity achieve “maximum value and competitive advantage across the technology supply chain”.
Dicker Data Chairman and CEO, David Dicker, said “I’m pleased to welcome Cohesity into our range of world-leading backup and data management solutions”.
“We’re seeing continued growth in the demand for data management products which correlates to the company’s strong performance in the market. We’re also well positioned to leverage the Cohesity technology alliance partnerships which includes a number of our existing vendors such as Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Microsoft.”
According to Dicker Data, enterprise businesses are struggling to take control of their data in a hybrid cloud world and, in the data centre, “there are multiple silos for backup software, backup target, file storage, object storage, and dev/test”.
“These silos are complex to manage, inefficient, and don’t scale to keep up with data growth. Cohesity helps businesses modernise their data management strategy and eliminate silos, enabling them to easily back up, manage and extract insights from their data across core, edge, and cloud storage.
“Furthermore, Cohesity is integrated into storage technology from HPE and Cisco to create a simplified platform for modern data management. Cohesity delivers a web-scale platform that consolidates all data and apps infrastructure onto one unified, efficient solution.”
“As businesses struggle with rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data, the need to optimise data management, including backup and storage costs, becomes more critical. That’s even more the case today as IT leaders look to reduce costs during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kathryn Ramanathan, channels manager, ANZ, Cohesity.
“By making the most efficient use of infrastructure, organisations can lower costs in a variety of areas including: shrinking data centre footprints, lowering power consumption, reducing support costs, and cutting the frequency with which additional infrastructure needs to be purchased.
“As an official Cohesity distributor, Dicker Data, has demonstrated knowledge of Cohesity solutions and products, and we are confident in Dicker Data’s ability to strengthen our partner ecosystem, and enhance our go-to-market plan in Australia.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Dicker Data to the Cohesity family as our Australian Distributor,” said Les Mansour head of channels, APJ, Cohesity.
“The partnership presents unmatched synergies both from a technology alliance perspective, with HPE and Cisco but also from their solutions capability coupled with their reach across the Australian reseller base. We are already impressed by the knowledge and activities in preparation for launch and the huge commitment to the success of the partnership. The people are what make a partnership succeed, and with David, Vlad, Vickie and Marty’s support, we are excited about the potential for success with the partnership.”
