Promark, which focuses on data storage and content management solutions, provides technical assistance, competitive price quotes and contract vehicles that VARs and system integrators can affordably and reliably leverage to meet their customers' needs. Bocada's DPSM solutions deliver business and IT alignment to maximize operational efficiency, minimize risk and improve customer satisfaction, and contribute to the breadth of Promark's arsenal of data storage and protection products. Promark and Bocada will work together on marketing and sales programs for Promark's over 1,000 specialty VARs and government/federal VARs.

Bocada Prism, a comprehensive DPSM solution that goes beyond backup reporting to deliver intuitive problem-solving, SLA management and workflow-driven intelligent analysis, was successfully installed in the Promark lab. Tests over the past few months validated Prism's capabilities across several backup applications and showed how it solves data protection challenges managing more than 300,000 clients in some of the largest, most complex storage environments in the world.

"Bocada Prism is a strategic addition to our portfolio of first-class vendors, and we are committed to supporting Bocada's channel plan as well as its DMR strategy to make Prism more readily available to the end user community," said Charles Bass, Promark Vice President of Vendor Alliances.

"Promark is highly selective and only chooses vendors and technologies that will bring great value to their channel partners and ultimately add to their bottom line," said Nancy Hurley, CEO of Bocada. "This agreement introduces Prism to an expanding base of top solution providers throughout the U.S. and is integral to our expansion across all channel platforms."

Bocada Prism will also be available to government customers via Promark's General Services Administration (GSA) schedule procurement process. Promark holds a two-tier distribution agreement with GSA that resellers can leverage to sell products to government customers even if they do not hold a GSA contract of their own.
