Computerlinks finds Pillar to lean on

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 19 April 2011

UK VAD outfit Computerlinks has signed a strategic partnership with application-aware storage systems provider Pillar Data Systems. The deal covers the UK and Ireland and will boost Computerlinks’ networking, security and virtualisation solutions portfolio and will form part of its next generation data centre channel proposition.

The deal will provide Computerlinks’ channel partners with access to Pillar Axiom – a scalable storage platform. Computerlinks plans to show how resellers can drive down costs in areas such as rack space, power consumption and management overheads with Pillar’s storage solutions, at a series of channel-only next generation data centre seminars taking place around the UK.

David Ellis, director of new technology and services at Computerlinks, commented: “We are very excited to be working with Pillar Data Systems. It’s a perfect fit with our next generation data centre proposition, which is capturing the attention of resellers at the moment with the explosion in cloud computing and virtualisation.”

Jonathan Hebbes, NEMEA regional director at Pillar Data Systems, said: “We believe that the partnership with Computerlinks perfectly reflects our vision of helping customers drive down infrastructure costs and increasing efficiencies by delivering a single platform that can address all the application requirements of a next generation data centre. We’re very excited about the potential of this partnership.”

The announcement follows Computerlinks UK’s recent remodelling of its business to assist channel partners in delivering profitable, value-added services around new and emerging technologies such as virtualisation, cloud computing and IP-based physical security.

Computerlinks plans to follow its next generation data centre seminar programme with a series of technical workshops and is in the process of qualifying as a Pillar registered service and training partner to help resellers wrap additional value around their data management sales.
