Networking distie Azlan has moved into the high-end storage market with its Active Storage initiative following a year long pilot. The company is putting control of existing network storage activity into a new division headed by Nick Kandola, and is looking for new resellers to expand its activity in the storage sector.
At the heart of the Azlan's storage offer will be vendors like Digital StorageWorks, Sony, StorageTek, Storage Dimensions, Quantum, Emerald, Cheyenne and Legato.
Kandola was at pains to stress that Azlan is steering well clear of the low end of the storage market, which he sees as the heartland of most specialist storage distributors. Azlan is coining the term 'active storage' to mean storage backing up mission critical networking applications, covering redundant storage, complex back-up and archiving systems and storage management applications.
