The figure represents a three-fold increase on sales in the previous six months and the new status will mean Esteem, which has worked with the vendor since the beginning of the year, is more closely aligned with NetApp and will enhance to delivery of services and solutions to its customer base.
Peter Rawden, UK channel director for NetApp said: “We have been impressed by the way Esteem works. Their understanding of customers’ needs has meant they have become one of our fastest growing partners in the UK.
“Our worldwide sales have risen significantly in recent years, and we would like to take this opportunity to recognise Esteem for their significant contribution to this success.”
Alastair Kitching, commercial director of Esteem said: “It’s fantastic that NetApp has rewarded our hard work in this way. The services and solutions we provide to our customers are underpinned by the best technology and NetApp’s storage solutions fit perfectly with this philosophy.
“We were anticipating significant growth when we first became a NetApp partner, but not necessarily on this scale,” he added.
