HP tipped to hand Azlan storage contract

Hewlett-Packard is expected to make Azlan the fifth distributor to carry its enterprise storage line-up from next month.



Hewlett-Packard is expected to make Azlan the fifth distributor to carry its enterprise storage line-up from next month. 

 

This follows an extensive review of the StorageWorks division’s distributors that was expected to result in DNS being given rights to sell the volume as well as the existing value range. 

 

“HP has made us all go through a lot of hard work and now it seems the change it is going to make out of the review is to appoint Azlan,” said a source. 

 

Azlan parent C2000 - which had also been in the running to buy CCD - currently sells HP’s volume storage kit as well as Industry Standard Servers.

 

It is understood to be planning investment in Azlan with an increase in headcount and efforts to capture more of the mid market reseller channel. 

 

Computer 2000 refused to comment and HP said partner relationships were confidential. 

 

Earlier this week, Ingram Micro signalled its intent to move more aggressively into the enterprise market by acquiring CCD.
