WANdisco solutions now available from Ingram Micro in North America
WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced its portfolio is now available to channel partners through Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE:IM). The agreement with IT solutions aggregator DistiNow allows Ingram Micro’s authorized technology resellers in North America to quickly and easily add WANdisco’s solutions to their existing product offerings.
“Ingram Micro is well positioned to help us identify new business opportunities and drive significant growth throughout North America,” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO. “As a single-source distributor offering its channel partners full access to a complete array of solutions and services, Ingram Micro offers extensive reach into new markets for WANdisco’s products and services.”
WANdisco’s patented replication technology removes the single point of failure, bottleneck and latency risks associated with a central server software approach, providing continuous hot-backup and automatic failover across every site. Unlike other solutions, WANdisco’s technology works over a Wide Area Network (WAN) as well as a Local Area Network (LAN), providing teams around the world with LAN-speed performance and enterprises with non-stop global disaster recovery and business continuity. The company offers solutions for Apache Subversion, Git and Hadoop Big Data.
“Data availability is a high priority that spans across nearly every vertical market and as such presents a growing opportunity for our channel partners,” said Bill Brandel, senior director, Advanced Computing Division, Ingram Micro U.S. “We’re pleased to bring WANdisco’s portfolio of products to our channel partners and provide them with a needed solution that allows them to monetize the open source product market.”
