Enterprise network storage vendor Compellent Technologies has selected virtualisation VAR Transtec Computers to resell its Compellent Storage Centre.
Oxfordshire-based Transtec is a subsidiary of Transtec AG, which is headquartered in Tübingen, Germany.
Matthew Prew, managing director of Transtec Computers, said: “We were particularly impressed with Compellent’s block-level virtualisation technology which enables automated tiered storage, thin provisioning, simplified data replication and advanced virtualisation technologies.”
Transtec is set to benefit from Compellent's channel ‘assisted sales’ model, in addition to its sales force gaining access to Compellent’s online partner portal. The portal offers lead registration, rapid quote generation and a range of other online resources.
Andy Hardy, managing director of international sales at Compellent, said: “Compellent is the only storage company that wants its customers to buy fewer drives, often 80 per cent fewer than traditional storage systems.
“Because the Compellent SAN is so hugely efficient, channel partners like Transtec are in a strong position to win deal after deal in what, for most other storage vendors, has proven to be a tough economic climate.”
