Tech Data and Westcon-Comstor make the cut as APJ distie partners for Datadobi

06 Apr 2017

Datadobi recently announced the appointment of Tech Data’s Technology Solutions business (formerly a division of Avnet) and Westcon-Comstor as their distribution partners for the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region.

The data migration software provider is looking to ease customers of the typically laborious, time-consuming and complex process of data mobility through its distribution partnership.

Technology Solutions and Westcon-Comstor’s Professional Services teams will now be able to enlist the functionality of DobiMiner software, which Datadobi says is a powerful tool in easing customers’ technology transitions from any legacy platform to next-generation storage by providing the file migration solution in terms of performance, functionality, and reliability.

Regional director for Datadobi APJ, Andy Milburn says migration is a key part of almost every storage refresh, whether it be staying on a customer’s site or split with public or private cloud capacity.

“Traditionally, data migration has been time consuming, complex, and risky, and as a consequence, not something that was offered by the majority of partners,” Milburn says.

“By using DobiMiner, Technology Solutions and Westcon can now enable all of their partners to include migration services as part of every appropriate storage opportunity.”

Milburn says that DobiMiner enables new systems to be deployed rapidly, allowing customers to quickly realise the TCO improvements offered by storage vendors – most of which assume an early decommissioning of existing equipment.
