Distributor seeks forward thinking channel partners to capitalise on opportunity to recommend affordable, enterprise class, Hyperconverged technology into their customer base.
Reading, UK: 3rd September 2015:Cloud Distribution Ltd, the security, networking and storage next generation value-added distributor, has announced the General Availability of their Hyperconverged Appliance solution, hyperserV. Designed specifically for the SME market, hyperserV combines storage, compute, networking and virtualisation within its core and places enterprise technology directly into SME server rooms.
Tapping into the benefits of hyperconvergence has previously been cost prohibitive for smaller organisations, yet hyperserV is one of the first plug-and-play hyperconverged solutions, offering channel partners a huge opportunity to deliver new value for companies, organisations and departments, with a fully virtualised, enterprise class, easy to use and deploy, data centre solution.
Powered internally by DataCore Software’s Virtual SAN solution, this appliance comes with a highly attractive small business price tag and offers true value essentials, such as reducing server room footprint by up to 90%; directly decreasing support and energy costs and allowing resource constrained IT Pros to redirect their effort away from potentially cumbersome storage management into innovation and delivering IT as-a-service for their organisations.
Bruce Hockin, Director of Storage Solutions, Cloud Distribution commented. “Hyperconvergence shouldn’t be for the exclusive use of the enterprise and channel partners simply don’t want the pain of putting together an ‘out of the box’ solution themselves. By bringing hyperserV direct to the channel, we are empowering our partners to make Hyperconvergence accessible to the SME market and generate new revenue streams. We are now actively recruiting partners to embrace hyperserV, especially those who target education, local government, legal and not for profit organisations.”
Comprising market leading hypervisors, hyperserV is technically validated by DataCore as part of the ‘DataCore Ready’ Program, and it cements its high-availability, high-performance positioning with feature-rich capabilities like automated tiering of data; caching to increase application performance and thin provisioning of existing storage.
Brett Denly, Regional Director, DataCore Software UK commented. "We are thrilled to see that hyperserV is powered by DataCore's Virtual SAN Software, and have worked closely with Cloud Distribution to validate this appealing solution. There is an increasing appetite from SMEs for hyperconvergence in the UK, simply because of the ability to dramatically optimise storage environments without the overhead of SAN management."
hyperserV is available in four models with a choice of capacity points and hypervisors. They are shipping now and start with a recommended street price of £31,199 for the 8TB model and includes 3 years 24/7 support and next day onsite hardware engineer as standard.
