Computerlinks has confirmed it will sign further vendors as part of its plans to position itself as a major virtualisation player in the distribution channel.
The distributor announced earlier this year that it would introduce a virtualisation-focused arm to its portfolio to help partners win business in the space.
Rupert Collier, virtualisation product manager at Computerlinks, said the company’s aim is to develop a product stack that provides partners with the tools to tackle server virtualisation projects.
“The datacentre end is where the virtualisation technology is most established and where the bulk of the interest in it is focused,” he said.
Oren Taylor, sales director at virtualisation specialist distributor CDG UK, said: “The vendors it has are very strong and nicely cover the hardware and management end of the virtualisation story.
"Computerlinks should also consider adding more niche players to its portfolio because it is such a fast-developing part of the market.”
