Arcserve distribution moves to ACA Pacific for 'new strategic direction'

03 Nov 16

Arcserve has appointed ACA Pacific as its Australian distributor a month after its previous distribution relationship with Dicker Data Australia ended.

ACA Pacific will distribute Arcserve’s full portfolio, including its unified data protection (UDP) and the new Arcserve UDP 8000 Appliance in a move the vendor says heralds ‘a new strategic direction’.

Caddy Tan, Arcserve APAC regional director, says the company has been reviewing its plans on how to maximise the full potential of the ‘key’ regional market of Australia.

“[We] decided a fresh approach was required in order to take our business to the next level,” Tan says.

“A key component of this was to change our distribution set up to bolster our partner network and we quickly identified ACA Pacific as being the ideal distribution partner for us moving forward.”

Melbourne-headquartered ACA Pacific specialises in data storage, with vendors including CommVault, StorageCraft, Quantum and Tandberg, as well as document management and business solutions, where its vendors include SAP.

Mark Gill, ACA Pacific’s managing director, says Arcserve ‘fits the bill perfectly’ in matching customers’ needs within the data protection space.

“With a portfolio that supports physical, virtual and cloud environments, we are confident of helping Arcserve to accelerate its growth in Australia and make it a win-win situation for both parties,” Gill says.

Arcserve has just released its second-generation UDP appliance series, and says for partners and managed service providers looking to expand their data protection portfolio, the new series offers ‘a breadth of storage capacity to meet the needs of any size organisation’

Dicker Data announced in early October that it was ceasing distribution of Arcserve and Cloud Recover to instead focus on its Veritas and StorageCraft relationships.
