Once virtualisation solutions are implemented, solution providers can continue profiling physical and virtual infrastructure to identify further optimization and virtualisation opportunities.

“As Lanamark continues to rapidly expand its global reach, selection of strong value-added distribution partners with core expertise in data centre and virtualisation solutions is a top priority,” said Mark Angelo, CEO of Lanamark. “For more than twenty-five years, First Distribution has been providing the IT channel in South Africa with first-rate product selection and value-added services. Our alliance will enhance accessibility of Lanamark products and services in South Africa and enable solution providers to accelerate delivery of application, desktop and server virtualisation solutions.”
