Synaxon and NetJapan form partnership to bring virtualised backup opportunity to UK resellers
Leading provider of backup solutions for HyperV and VMware environments joins reseller services group’s growing list of solutions for virtual and cloud deployments
Warrington, 09 October 2014 – Synaxon UK has signed a partnership agreement with NetJapan, a leading publisher of backup and disaster recovery solutions for virtual and physical environments, presenting the reseller services group’s members with the opportunity to offer customers protection against the risk of data loss in virtual and physical environments.
For Synaxon the agreement is part of a continuing effort to improve and expand the range of services it offers to members. For NetJapan it is an opportunity to introduce potential UK business partners to the company’s ActiveImage Protector and vmGuardian solutions, which address the challenges faced in backing up VMware and Hyper-V environments, as well as physical and virtual Windows and Linux, while ensuring they can restore them swiftly in the event of any outage or hardware failure.
Derek Jones, Managing Director of Synaxon UK, stated: “NetJapan’s solutions are very well-known and established in its home market, the Pacific Rim and in North America. With server and storage virtualisation now seeing high levels of penetration even amongst SMBs, and capacity requirements still growing, there is a pressing need for high quality backup solutions for virtual and physical systems that both resellers and their customers can rely upon completely. NetJapan offers a true one-stop solution for backup and recovery of both virtual hosts and their VMs, as well as physical environments. NetJapan gives our members freedom from complexity, allowing them to choose one solution for 99% of their customers’ needs.”
Commenting on behalf of NetJapan, Caroline Coste, UK Sales Manager, stated: “As an established presence in the UK channel, Synaxon will help us expose our solutions and communicate our unique value proposition to prospective partners and their customers. With this agreement, NetJapan is taking a big step toward becoming established as a key player in the UK market for backup and restore solutions.”
