According to industry reports, server and storage technologies act as the foundation for cloud-based data centers. Today’s infrastructures rely on the flexibility and scalability of these solutions to help customers realize the full impact of virtualization. Westcon’s expanded practice builds on this momentum, helping partners accelerate customer adoption of next-generation virtualized and cloud-based infrastructures.
The Fujitsu portfolio directly complements Westcon’s existing Cisco, Brocade and Avaya relationships – enabling partners to more effectively build new business practices based on these offerings. Westcon now offers the full line of Fujitsu server and storage solutions to specialty resellers across North America. The agreement includes both the PRIMERGY® server and ETERNUS® storage product lines – both supported by Westcon’s award-winning service, integration, training and support programs.
