WHOLESALE technology distributor Ingram Micro said it has entered into a distribution agreement with Nimble Storage, the flash storage solutions company.
Through the agreement, Ingram Micro will sell Nimble Adaptive Flash arrays and Nimble SmartStack integrated infrastructure solutions to organisations in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
The Nimble Adaptive Flash platform, which has been embraced by more than 5,000 customers across 38 countries, enables IT organisations to predict, manage and deliver the storage required to optimise business applications and workloads across the enterprise, Ingram Micro said in a statement.
To provide optimal performance and the highest level of interoperability, San Jose, California-based Nimble has developed SmartStack, an integrated infrastructure platform built on Cisco UCS and pre-validated through ecosystem partners including VMware, Oracle, Citrix, and Microsoft, it added.
“Nimble believes enterprise IT organisations should not have to compromise on performance, capacity, ease of use, or price,” said Kristin Carnes, vice president of channel sales at Nimble Storage.
“Therefore, we’ve established a global partner ecosystem to provide enterprises access to our adaptive flash storage platform.
“Further, we believe Ingram Micro’s strong relationships with our alliance partners make this partnership even more beneficial for customers seeking converged infrastructure solutions,” she added.
Ingram Micro said it will leverage its strong relationships with the Cisco channels team and the Cisco partner community, together with Nimble, to make SmartStack integrated infrastructure available to end-users.
“Nimble’s market success has proven that flash storage solutions represent the next generation of storage,” said Francis Choo, vice president of South-East Asia at Ingram Micro.
“This partnership enables us to build upon our strong vendor and solutions ecosystem, in order to offer next-generation storage within a converged infrastructure solution,” he added.
