Storage Specialist Promark Technology to Distribute DataCore Storage Virtualization Solutions
DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization software, and Promark Technology, one of the premier value added distributors in the U.S., today announced a new distribution relationship under which Promark Technology will distribute DataCore’s industry-leading, open platform, storage virtualization solutions in the United States. 

“Resellers across the United States count on Promark as a trusted source for their storage products and solutions, as well as the technical and sales assistance, that gives them a competitive edge,” said Todd Hartung, Vice President, Promark Technology. “DataCore’s storage virtualization software gives our partners a huge benefit: an affordable, but fully scalable, true auto-failover/failback business continuity and SAN storage management solution that isn’t tied to any particular hardware. That gives our partners the opportunity to select hardware that really matches the budget, needs and preferences of their customers.”  

Fail-safe, Freely Movable, and Efficiently Manageable Storage; Hardware-independence, iSCSI & Fibre Channel Support, and a Value-Protection Plan for “Penalty Free” Growth

DataCore storage virtualization software removes physical, geographic and device-specific restrictions of data storage equipment that frequently slow down, interrupt or endanger computer operations – making it practical for organizations large and small to get the fullest utilization, highest availability and fastest performance from their disk storage assets by consolidating and automating essential data protection measures and storage management practices. Ideally suited for VMware and other virtual server customers, DataCore is unique in providing true high-availability, auto-failover/failback business continuity and DR solutions that are perfect for SMB customers, but perform to meet the needs of enterprise customers – at prices starting under $10,000.

DataCore Software is manufacturer-independent software that runs on any industry standard server or virtual server. It is certified on all the major virtual server platforms, including VMware, Microsoft and Citrix, and supports both iSCSI and Fibre Channel connections.  As a result, DataCore provides a persistent solution that survives hardware obsolescence and under DataCore's unique "Carry-forward" Value Protection Program is fully upgradeable without penalty. 

“Promark Technology is a great addition to our distribution channel in the United States,” said James E. Price III, Vice President, Product and Channel Marketing. “Promark is a recognized storage specialist and a trusted advisor to its channel partners. We believe that Promark will be very successful in bringing DataCore solutions to many new VARs, including those who tend to be more hardware-centric.”

DataCore’s partner program offers lead registration, simple-to-sell packaged offerings that are highly complementary to and integrate tightly with major virtual server and desktops solutions, and the opportunity to build solutions with the servers and storage they currently sell, making it easy for partners to add meaningful value that differentiates them from their competition.
