Synnex expands data protection portfolio for SMBs

30 Jul 18

Synnex Australia has partnered with Carbonite and is now rolling out the data protection vendor's comprehensive platform to its channel partners.

The platform offers protection that ranges from backup and disaster recovery to workload migrations and endpoint protection.

“The partnership with Carbonite enhances the Synnex cloud data protection portfolio,” says Synnex Australia and New Zealand CEO Kee Ong

“Especially for partners that require a solid migration solution to move client servers and data between various cloud platforms. This presents a tremendous opportunity to offer on-premise and cloud migration services”.

The Carbonite portfolio is designed to simplify data protection strategies for SMBs and enable growth for channel partners.

Resellers can sell their product directly to end clients while MSPs can offer data protection-as-a-service.

Partners will benefit from Carbonite’s strong focus in the channel, helping them to scale and grow their SMB clients.

“The challenges of moving workloads and data between servers or cloud infrastructure is minimisation of downtime for clients,"  says Synnex e-commerce and cloud services general manager Michael Tea.

With Carbonite, our partners will be able to move data, applications or entire servers between clouds, physical and virtual platforms with virtually zero downtime”.

Carbonite has 13 years of expertise in data protection and more than 1.5 million customers around the world depend on Carbonite and their partners to protect data from hardware failure, natural disasters and cyberthreats like ransomware and malicious hackers.

“Businesses today are required to protect more data than ever before - at the same time they need to defend against a rising number of threats to their data,” says Carbonite APAC regional sales director Steve Stavridis.

“They need a comprehensive data protection strategy to ensure they can protect critical business data and minimise both planned and unplanned downtime”.
