DC to market Fujitsu server range across ANZ

23 Apr 2013

Fujitsu has appointed Distribution Central as a value-added distributor of the company's PRIMERGY server range in Australia and New Zealand.

The Japanese firm says the new partnership will expand the reach of PRIMERGY servers into mid to upper channel markets as Distribution Central leverages the company's enterprise technology as part of its data centre offering.

The company will also market the servers to its highly skilled and accredited reseller partner base as a stand-alone solution for traditional applications of this leading server technology.

Distributed through SAN Systems, a DC business unit specialising in storage and data centre solutions, the serves will provide a full suite of reseller support services according to DC managing director Nick Verykios.

“The introduction of Fujitsu’s server range into the SAN Systems’ portfolio will fast track DC's Product on Demand (POD) portfolio delivered through our DC PodFactory service," he said.

"We’ll be able to deliver scalable solutions to enable end-customers to grow along with their business.”

DC’s PODs include existing reference infrastructures and integrate various vendor offerings to create solutions that solve contemporary business problems.

Verykios says they can also be configured, validated, supported and asset managed through DC’s SaaS channel management platform and support services, with initial offerings including architectures involving Fujitsu, NetApp, CommVault, Splunk and Brocade.

“Fujitsu welcomes Distribution Central as a value-added distribution partner," said Alistair Latham, Group Executive director, Infrastructure Solutions and Support, Fujitsu ANZ.

"Its specialist expertise and solution orientation ensures quality delivery of our technologies to high-end customers through the Fujitsu channel.

"Crucially, this distribution agreement will also see individual resellers take our PRIMERGY servers as business technology components into broader, mid-range sections of the market; as well as enable Distribution Central to provide new integrated solutions for Fujitsu partners.”
