Zadara, Promark Remove Barrier to Widespread Adoption of Enterprise Storage-as-a-Service by Channel Partners
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zadara Storage Inc., provider of the industry’s only complete enterprise storage-as-a-service (STaaS), and Promark Technology, a premier, U.S.-focused value-added distributor (VAD), are changing the face of enterprise STaaS. Together, the two companies have introduced a new, streamlined system that brings simplicity to the process of ordering, managing and provisioning enterprise storage services.
This is welcome news for channel partners, as provisioning enterprise storage is typically viewed as complex, with the potential to prevent adoption of the enterprise STaaS model. The new process addresses that barrier to adoption and enables Promark customers to order Zadara’s service offerings by choosing from just a few options. The end result is a turnkey solution for customers to choose the right storage media, capacity and controllers to meet their performance and cost goals.
Zadara has recently formed a strategic partnership with Promark, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE:IM), the world’s largest technology distributor and global leader in IT supply chain and mobile device lifecycle services. “As an organization we are committed to making emerging technologies straightforward to access and more profitable for our customers,” said Jeff Brown, president and general manager for Promark. “By simplifying the ordering process, we’re making it easier for resellers and service providers to offer enterprise storage-as-a-service to their customers.”
Zadara provides enterprise NAS and SAN service with NFS, CIFS/AD and iSCSI interfaces, dual HA controllers, dedicated high-performance drives and enterprise-class storage features – including snapshots, replication, thin provisioning, encryption, and more. Data is stored on dedicated hardware for increased privacy and quality of service, and protected with in-flight and at-rest encryption, including user-managed keys. With Zadara, users get more than enterprise-class storage. Zadara comes with 24/7/365 live support, proactive system management, periodic non-disruptive hardware upgrades included, and a 100%-uptime guarantee. The comprehensive storage service offered by Zadara simplifies an IT organization’s operations and reduces its costs.
“Zadara is the first and only company to offer enterprise storage as a complete service,” noted Roland Serna, vice president of channels and alliances for Zadara. “Our flexible, full-service, real-time, proactive approach keeps the entire customer experience top of mind, and this approach starts from the beginning – as early as the initial ordering process. Our goal is to enable business transformation for VARs, resellers and solution providers alike.”
