With immediate effect, the entire portfolio of advanced data management and storage solutions from Pure Storage will be available via Tech Data in France, Ireland and the United Kingdom, giving solutions integrators and resellers access to Tech Data’s expertise in enterprise and mid-market solutions, value-added services, and unrivalled business development, logistics, and financial capabilities.

The addition of Pure Storage complements Tech Data’s current portfolio of infrastructure products and extends choice to partners and their customers.

In addition, with its professional services offerings, Tech Data can support partners in delivering consultancy, installation and on-going support and managed services, bridging skills gaps and enabling them to deliver more value to customers and grow their business.

Tech Data will be working both with existing Pure Storage partners and looking to extend the vendor’s reach into the enterprise and mid-market sectors.

Jason Boxall, senior vice president Advanced Solutions for Tech Data EMEA, said: “as the capacity needs of large and mid-sized organisations continue to rise, there are tremendous growth opportunities for partners with Pure Storage.
