– Global technology provider Arrow Electronics and Infinidat, a leading independent provider of enterprise-class data storage solutions, extended their distribution agreement to cover the UK market, strategically supporting enterprises’ revenue growth. Based on the agreement, Infinidat will gain broader access to Arrow`s extensive network of channel contacts in the United Kingdom. The distribution agreement previously covered Germany, Iberia, Italy and the Nordics region. Arrow is Infinidat’s sole distributor in the US.
“Managing and forecasting data storage growth is one of the key IT challenges companies need to overcome. We aim to create business value for UK businesses with our software-defined data storage solutions. Arrow is a known and trusted adviser in over 90 countries, distributing data storage systems to large organisations,” said Lee Bushnell, channel manager, UK&I at Infinidat. “We look forward to the expanded cooperation, having already successfully completed multiple projects across our key European regions.”
Infinidat’s enterprise data storage portfolio allows enterprises to consolidate legacy storage into a single InfiniBox system or reduce multiple data protection systems to a single InfiniGuard system, decreasing physical footprint, power requirements and administrative burden. With performance that is faster than AFA systems, Infinidat delivers greater application performance with the highest possible reliability. Critically, Infinidat`s flexible consumption models also support optimal IT spend for business transformation and growth.
Mark McHale, vice president of sales of Arrow`s enterprise computing solutions business for UK and Ireland, added, “Infinidat has put together an innovative set of solutions for data storage, data protection, business continuity and sovereign cloud storage. This delivers high-performance, an Always-On methodology and agile data storage solutions to our channel clients and their end customers. Infinidat`s solutions target the full data lifecycle and open up new opportunities for end users to manage and analyse data. We are looking forward to expanding our offering with their team.”
