Hammer said the deal, which focuses on the distribution of STEC’s ZeusIOPS and MACH8 SSD products, would help the vendor capitalise on the burgeoning popularity of the technology in Europe.
Gerard Marlow, disk business development manager at Hammer, said: “More and more of our European Enterprise OEMs are embracing Solid State technology and by offering STEC’s leading SSDs, Hammer intends to be at the forefront of the SSD trend in Europe.”
Manouch Moshayedi, chairman and chief executive at STEC, said the newly formed partnership would play a key role in driving the firm’s growth globally.
He said: “Partnering with Hammer – which has key knowledge of the local markets and customers – will be important as we continue to stretch the borders of SSD adoption worldwide.”
