After a year of product portfolio expansion as well as customer and partner growth, Diligent, a leading provider of enterprise data protection solutions, announced that is has reached agreements with new channel partners in major global regions.
New partners in Asia Pacific are InfoWhiz and PolyStor. Intellistorage, Telematics and Services Europe and Zycko have joined the Diligent Channel Partner program from Europe. CPM of Brazil has partnered with Diligent to serve large enterprises in the South American region. Also new to the program is PeakData from the US.
“We chose Diligent because of their proven track record of successful implementations in large, enterprise-class environments. Diligent has demonstrated and proven its technological leadership with its ProtecTIER data protection platform which enables us to bring innovative and value-added solutions to our Enterprise customer base,” said Claudio Wagner, Director of CPM.
“With its heritage and experience in selling into Global 2000 enterprise accounts, Diligent is clearly a leader in VTL technologies and has built a platform for the future with a clear and differentiated roadmap,” said Phillip Hyde, Founder and Managing Director of IntelliStorage. “The unique selling points of Diligent’s ProtecTIER and VTF solutions give us a compelling way to open the door with new enterprise prospects and to extend our solution portfolio with our existing customers.”
“We believe Diligent’s global channel partner expansion reaffirms our own market success as a company and demonstrates the continued interest in disk-based data protection,” said Mike Parise, Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Support for Diligent Technologies. “In fact, The InfoPro recently found that Virtual Tape has become an established and highly strategic category of enterprise data protection solutions. It is evident from the significant momentum and growth in our customer base this year, that our industry-leading portfolio and roadmap is well-positioned to serve our customers and partners’ needs now and in the future.”
Launched earlier in 2005, ProtecTIER is the first enterprise-class disk-based data protection solution that enables customers to effectively increase the capacity of a given disk array by 25 times or more. Powered by Diligent’s game-changing HyperFactor™ technology, ProtecTIER eliminates redundant data, radically reducing the amount and cost of physical storage required.
“Diligent clearly has identified a real-world challenge in enterprise data centers and has attacked the growth of repetitious data in backups head on,” said Arun Taneja, Founder and Consulting Analyst at Taneja Group. “Diligent has captured a sweet spot in the market by delivering ProtecTIER with HyperFactor, their data protection platform with factoring technology. We believe that in order to remain competitive, factoring capability in a VTL moves from a nice-to-have to a must-deliver technology.”
