Overland Storage today announced that it has signed up Logix Benelux, an e-business infrastructure solutions and services provider for IT professionals, to distribute its entire solutions portfolio in the region.
With this new partnership Overland plans to consolidate and strengthen its position in a market that is rapidly becoming one of the faster-growing in Europe. With its experience and track record the local Logix team is ideally positioned to help the vendor take its range of data protection products to a wide number of resellers.
The Overland Storage award-winning range of end-to-end data protection solutions including the Neo Series and ARCvault tape libraries, the Reo Series of disk-based appliances, the Ultamus Raid SAN-based appliances and the Snap Server NAS-based appliances, strongly complements the Logix Benelux portfolio and will be supported by a team of Overland-certified specialists dedicated to the distributor’s resellers.
“Overland is one of the leading providers of data protection for SMBs and it is now extending its range,” said Cedric Doignie, Country Manager Benelux at Logix. “Thanks to this addition Logix is continuing to deliver on its vision of becoming a key storage partners for resellers and integrators targeting the SMB and enterprise markets alike. This is also why during September and October we will run a ‘storage university’ to allow our partners to keep up to date with the latest technologies offered by our vendors.”
Thanks to this new relationship VARs will benefit from joint marketing activities, as well as access to the leads registration, accreditation and a comprehensive channel partner program from Overland Storage.
“Since April our priority has been to strengthen our channel strategy for the Benelux with elements that reflect the local market conditions. Although we now have an end-to-end product range our roadmap is rich in new additions that will enable Overland to become the default provider of data protection solutions,” said Olivier Braibant, sales manager for Benelux at Overland Storage. “In order to accelerate our expansion in this region we wanted to select a distributor which could commercially and technically present our offering to their resellers. Logix will help us offer Benelux resellers a high level of service that will enable them to select the most suitable solutions for their customers.”
