By Thorsten Schäfer, DACH Sales Manager

Having joined the StorMagic DACH team earlier this year, I have been blown away by what we have achieved in a short space of time. Partly due to the increased demand for SvSAN with Data Encryption following GDPR roll out in May, we have had a fantastic year that has seen us take on Tobias Pföhler as a partner manager, to oversee partner engagement and enablement.

Today, I’m delighted to announce that we have signed a new distributor agreement with Bytec, one of the largest server and storage distributors in Germany. Bytec and its hardware partners can now offer complete solutions pre-configured with StorMagic SvSAN. Bytec joins Prianto as a DACH distributor, giving all Channel Partners a choice between the two leading suppliers.

My sentiments are shared by Reinhold Egenter, Bytec’s managing director who stated in our press release announcing the partnership that StorMagic is an ideal fit for his resellers. This is very exciting for myself and StorMagic because we are now in a position to quickly and easily deliver our solution to customers who need us most. In a channel-only model, it can sometimes be difficult to get the access to the most suitable markets. This new partnership with Bytec will take StorMagic to the next level in Germany.

I am incredibly excited about what the rest of the year has in store. As a channel-focused company, this is an important step in executing StorMagic’s Preferred Partner Program across the entire DACH territory.If you are interested in finding out more about SvSAN, want to know more about how SvSAN with Data Encryption can make your business GDPR compliant, or are looking to refresh your storage then email me at [email protected]
