DataCore Appoints ACW Distribution to Deliver Cost-Efficient Storage Virtualization Solutions in Asia
DataCore Software, a leading provider of storage virtualization, business continuity and disaster recovery software solutions, today announced the appointment of ACW Distribution (S) Pte Ltd ("ACW"), a leading IT enterprise solutions provider in Asia, as a distributor in Singapore and Indonesia. Under this agreement, ACW will market through its extensive channel partners DataCore's SANmelodyTM and SANsymphonyTM suites of storage virtualization and storage management software to help organizations to optimize, manage and safeguard their storage, providing alternatives for large scale storage consolidation.

SANmelodyTM caters to small and midsize companies as well as business units and branches of larger enterprises that want to overcome the high cost barrier and complexity of traditional SAN storage and achieve better performance and manageability of their existing storage assets.

SANsymphonyTM is an open storage management software platform that fundamentally improves the way enterprises manage, purchase and scale their storage infrastructure.                                           

According to Springboard Research, the Virtualization software and services market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 42% to reach US$1.35 billion in 2010. "We believe that delivering high-performance, flexible and cost-efficient solutions would be the major driving force in the industry in 2010. While the physical storage market is becoming commoditized and cheaper investments in storage are expected, IT teams of large and small organizations are challenged with the colossal task of managing multiple storage assets and infrastructure as a result of continual storage additions," said Sam Chng, Regional Sales Director for South Asia and India, ACW.

Consolidation is a key way in which organizations are reviewing their storage and business continuity needs and strategies. DataCore Software storage solutions enable the optimization, performance and scalability of storage infrastructure, extending the life span of existing storage investments and creating a more manageable and flexible storage environment moving forward. We are delighted with our appointment as it reinforces our strategy to provide high-performance, scalable and cost-efficient solutions to our customers."

"DataCore Software is very pleased to have ACW onboard as a distributor in Singapore and Indonesia.  Their extensive knowledge of the markets and strong reseller relationships, coupled with their skills in storage, virtualization and data centre infrastructure, will provide us an excellent route to market as we continue to grow our presence in Southeast Asia", said Peter Thompson, Vice-President of Asia-Pacific for DataCore Software.
