By expanding its Western Digital portfolio, Exertis Hammer now has unique ability to distribute the entire Western Digital Data Centre Systems (DCS) range, which includes IntelliFlash, for mission critical, virtualised, and primary workloads, and can be delivered in hybrid, all-flash and all-NVMe solutions. This complements the existing Western Digital relationship distributing a leading range of high-capacity and high-performance drives, and platforms including servers, JBODs and JBOFs that enable software-defined storage environments.
Paul Silver, Senior Director EMEA DCS Sales at Western Digital, said: “As Western Digital forges its Data Centre Systems business, we are expanding our reach through world-class partners. Exertis Hammer holds an established position of being at the forefront of storage technology distribution, and we believe that this is a powerful partnership to grow a new base of customers, as well as reaching out to existing ones with a compelling new element to our portfolio.”
Adam Blackwell, General Manager for Software Defined Solutions at Exertis Hammer, said: “We are thrilled about the opportunity to employ our established trusted advisor ethos to the full Western Digital DCS portfolio, and excited about the opportunities which the IntelliFlash range presents for us and our customers. We have had an excellent relationship with Western Digital for many years, which is a great foundation for this new chapter of our partnership together.”
