Tech Data U.S. Partners With Vizioncore To Help VARs Better Manage Virtual Servers
The Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (AIS) Division of Tech Data Corporation (NASDAQ:TECD) today announced a partnership with Vizioncore, a market leader in server virtualization management. Through AIS, Tech Data will offer value-added resellers (VARs) access to a wide array of Vizioncore’s software solutions that enable organizations to better manage and administer virtual and physical servers.

“Virtualization solutions are radically altering the design of today’s data centers, requiring not only the development of new IT strategies but also the implementation of specialized tools to manage this new computing environment,” said Tech Data Director, Product Marketing, Advanced Infrastructure Solutions Division, Amy Belcher. “Vizioncore is a leader when it comes to those management tools, developing a broad slate of software VARs can deploy to ensure customers are making the most of their investment in server virtualization. That makes Vizioncore software a strong incremental revenue opportunity for VARs already selling virtualization solutions from our partners.”

“Vizioncore is the standard for backup and restoration, disaster recovery, replication, high availability and performance monitoring for virtualized environments,” said Chris Akerberg, president and chief operating officer of Vizioncore. “Vizioncore solutions are designed specifically for virtualized systems, and as virtualization continues to gain momentum in the channel, our partnership with Tech Data will help us engage new VARs to jointly capitalize on the rising demand for these solutions among businesses, government agencies and educational institutions nationwide.”

Tech Data will distribute a broad range of Vizioncore software products, including:

  • vRanger Pro – Backup and restoration solution for virtualized environments, enabling administrators to schedule image-level backups for virtual and physical servers while systems are still running. Images are stored locally on the SAN or distributed via the network to remote locations to support disaster recovery protocols.
  • vReplicator – Software-based replication solution for VMware infrastructure, enabling entire virtual machine to be replicated, including the operating system, patches, configurations, applications and data to another physical device.
  • vFoglight – Advanced monitoring and management solution to help users optimize their virtual infrastructure by tracking workloads and allocating computing resources on demand.
  • vConverter – Enterprise-class virtualization conversion solution that reduces time and complexity of converting physical servers to virtual servers leveraging multiple virtualization platforms. vConverter also can migrate virtual server images to physical servers.
