NTH Generation Joins DataCore Premier Partner Program to Fulfill Data Center Demand for Storage Virtualization and Software-Defined Solutions Industry Leading Solution Provider Partners with Storage Virtualization Vanguard to Solve the Most Challenging IT Barriers Customer are Facing Today
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. and SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DataCore Software, the premier provider of storage virtualization software, and NTH Generation, Southern California's leading IT solutions provider with more than 500 aggregate years of industry experience, today announced that NTH Generation has joined the DataCore™ Premier Partner Program to provide organizations with the most advanced, scalable, high performance and cost effective IT infrastructures available. With DataCore's SANsymphony-V storage virtualization platform, NTH Generation will now offer customers the ability to deploy adaptable and scalable virtualized storage environments that can support the high performance requirements that today's businesses demand. SANsymphony-V's hardware agnostic nature allows NTH customers to deploy any combination of hardware that best supports their unique computing needs and budgets, while getting the most return from existing resources.
"With a serious amount of IT projects today being stalled by enterprise storage performance and costs – and with an average of 50-75 percent of the cost of those projects being spent on storage – our customers are demanding solutions that solve these problems," said Dan Molina, chief technology officer at NTH Generation. "The DataCore partnership enables us to provide our customers the freedom to choose the storage devices that best meet the performance, data availability and costs they are looking for while meeting the demands of their IT end users today and in the future."
Since 1991, NTH Generation has provided enterprise IT solutions and value-added strategic consulting services for enterprise clients to ensure efficiency, business productivity and return on IT investment. NTH Generation's solutions include enterprise servers, storage, networking, virtualization, data protection and recovery, IT operations management, cloud computing, security, mobility and unified communications, among others. The company's consultants, solutions architects and project managers deliver custom service solutions to meet unique customer requirements and address a broad spectrum of enterprise IT needs.
SANsymphony™-V is an agnostic storage virtualization platform that enables companies to avoid hardware lock-in and purchase only the equipment that best suits their business goals. Advanced features, such as automated-tiering, allows IT administrators to get the maximum return on investment from expensive hardware purchases, such as flash and solid state disks (SSD), assuring that only applications and databases that require powerful computing are ever stored on them, while less frequently used, non-critical data is sent to lower performing equipment or even cloud-based options.
"The days of hardware lock-in are over and trusted advisors like NTH have learned through many years in the IT trenches that organizations today have unique storage challenges that are not being addressed with traditional storage hardware solutions," said David Ochser, channel chief, Americas for DataCore Software. "NTH is an established, highly-respected household name when it comes to helping solve the biggest problems facing customers today. Our partnership with NTH will ensure customers of all sizes will benefit from the power of storage virtualization."
DataCore Software's Premier Partner Program enables IT consultants and solution providers to answer growing market demand for more cost-effective storage, such as the implementation of flash and SSDs into tiered storage networks alongside conventional disk systems, as well as taking advantage of rented capacity in the cloud and migrations to software-defined storage. DataCore's recently enhanced Program builds on appealing characteristics which over the years have continually earned the company accolades in the reseller community. This includes channel-only sales that eliminate direct sales conflict, conscious regard for regional coverage by authorized partners in order to avoid over-distribution, and a customized on-boarding program help rapidly close new business within the VAR's current client population. Top-performing partners are invited to join the Partner Advisory Council, which meets bi-annually and has direct input into product development and joint business practices.
