Ingram Micro to distribute Silver Peak WAN optimisation in ANZ
SYDNEY, May 31, 2012—Silver Peak Systems and Ingram Micro Australia announced today that, as part of a distribution partnership across the APAC region, Ingram Micro has will distribute Silver Peak’s leading data centre class wide area network (WAN) optimisation products to resellers and customers in Australia and New Zealand.
“The growth of virtualised Infrastructures and centralised, cloud-based applications provides a strong growth opportunity for Silver Peak data centre class WAN optimisation solutions in this market,” said David Lenz, Senior Director, Enterprise Technology Group for Ingram Micro.
Silver Peak virtual and physical appliances provide the highest-capacity and most comprehensive options for deploying WAN optimisation anywhere—from data centres, to branch offices, and to the cloud. Silver Peak’s Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) also aligns well with Ingram Micro’s virtual infrastructure offerings from companies such as VMware (vSphere), Microsoft (Hyper-V), and KVM.
This enables enterprises to accelerate and optimise IT initiatives while reducing WAN infrastructure costs, including added costs for multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), Internet virtual private networking (VPN) and satellite WANs.
“Silver Peak’s innovative solutions and strong support for the channel make them an ideal partner and one which strongly complements our existing enterprise data centre vendor partners. We are looking forward to working closely with the Silver Peak team and our resellers to capitalise on the opportunities this strongly growing segment of the market offers,” says Lenz.
“ANZ is a critical region for WAN optimisation because of highly distributed IT environments and the inherent lower-quality WAN connectivity,” said Arturo Cazares, senior vice president of worldwide sales for Silver Peak. “By teaming with Ingram Micro and our reseller partners in Australia, we will help customers cost-effectively maximise their WAN resources and accelerate the adoption of business-critical applications between data centres, branch offices, and the cloud.”
As part of the new value-added distribution relationship, Ingram Micro and Silver Peak are co-investing in dedicated technical support staff, market development, and cross-trained sales engineers across the APAC region.
