Under the terms of the agreement, Bull will use GlassHouse methodologies and tools within a new consulting practice in its StoreWay business unit.
Bull and GlassHouse are set to offer storage assessments to businesses through Bull’s existing sales and services organisation.
Mark Shirman, chief executive of GlassHouse Technologies, said: “This partnership is complementary to Bull’s strategic direction and integral to GlassHouse’s expansion into mainland Europe.
“Bull’s significant market penetration into thousands of organisations, extensive IT infrastructure expertise and dedicated focus on storage integration make them an ideal partner.”
Benoit Hallez, director of Bull’s StoreWay business unit, said: “Faced with continuing high levels of data growth and budgetary restrictions, IT organisations are increasingly seeking to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of their existing storage infrastructures rather than simply adding raw storage capacity.
“This partnership will help our customers meet these challenges by combining GlassHouse’s experience and leadership in the storage assessment field and Bull’s long experience in storage integration and presence in the European IT market.”
