The subject of the agreement is the distribution and post-sale service of enterprise-class storage systems - complex solutions for datacentres and corporate clients, as well as cooperation on marketing issues. Seagate annually supplies the storage systems market with a total capacity of more than 400 Exabyte’s. Most of the world's data is stored on Seagate drives. In cooperation with ASBIS Seagate expands its enterprise storage shipments in EMEA region, including Storage products of the Exos and Nytro series.
Exos hard drives and Nytro SSDs are designed specifically for enterprise-class workloads, delivering high performance, capacity and reliability, while ensuring maximum data security and instant access. The product line includes a wide range of disk, hybrid and flash storage for SANs, JBOD systems for server connectivity and easy capacity scaling, and converged computing platforms for high storage density.
“The signing of a distribution agreement for Seagate Storage Systems further strengthens ASBIS's position as a VAD distributor and provider of solutions for datacentres and corporate clients”, said Marek Horyl, Product Marketing Director of ASBIS. “The solutions we are talking about have actually been known to customers around the world for decades. The only thing is that they were previously only shipped through the sales channels of leading storage vendors such as HPE, Lenovo and DELL EMC. The total installed base of such systems exceeds 1 million systems worldwide - more than any other product in the segment of entry-level data storage systems. Today we are especially pleased and proud to be the first to introduce Seagate Storage systems directly from Seagate in the markets of Central Eastern Europe, Russia, Post-Soviet Union countries, Middle East region and North Africa. We are confident that with our efforts, Seagate Storage Systems solutions will soon take the lead in datacentres for the region's largest customers.”
Seagate Storage systems will be used for a wide variety of customer tasks, including primary storage for mission-critical applications, server virtualisation tasks, all storage tiers of private and hybrid clouds, video surveillance, high performance computing, data backup and recovery systems, data analytics, media and entertainment and many others.
“We are delighted that our strategic partnership with ASBIS, which began in 1992, will be expanded to include the Seagate Systems and Solutions corporate line. For over 40 years we have been producing innovative storage systems. Expanding cooperation with ASBIS is an important step in positioning Seagate as a comprehensive storage provider in the EMEA markets”, commented Alexander Malinin, Head of Seagate Technology in Russia.
