FalconStor joins iCITA ecosystem, expands distribution across ANZ

10 Nov 16

Software-defined solutions provider FalconStor has expanded its distribution across Australia and New Zealand and joined the iCITA ecosystem.

The company's entry into the iCITA ecosystem was initiated through a vendor alliance with a regional distributor. The distributor will provide FreeStor, a horizontal converged data services platform, to the ANZ region.

According to FalconStor, the iCITA partnership will offer organisations effective and consistent storage hardware management through the FreeStor platform, even through changing vendors and markets.

"Resellers and distributors today need to be able to provide a comprehensive suite of product choices that are readily accessible and can be tailored to their clients' individual needs. We are pleased to offer FalconStor solutions as part of our Vendor Alliances ecosystem. We feel that FreeStor is ideally suited to helping our members better understand their storage requirements and how they can fully utilise storage space within their data centre and enterprise environments," comments iCITA CEO Damien Stephens.

David Bull, FalconStor's technical sales director, believes channel resellers, service providers and integrators will be able to offer customers 'cutting-edge' cloud and infrastructure solutions while keeping the local marketplace in mind.

"Many organisations find themselves locked into a particular storage infrastructure, whether due to licensing obligations or economic necessity, but still need newer functionality that their traditional systems simply can't provide. iCITA will be able to help us educate organisations as to the benefit of adding FreeStor's software approach and Intelligent Abstraction to unlock features and benefits that will help them compete both locally and in a global economy," Bull explains.

iCITA provides vendor members hosting, IaaS, HaaS, SaaS, virtualisation, and software/hardware products for customers.
