Storage VAD channelfusion has signed up application performance and efficiency specialist Condusiv to give partners more options in enterprise storage pitches.
The new partnership will see channelfusion offer Condusiv’s V-locity I/O reduction and caching software solution, which boosts app performance in both virtualised cloud and physical Microsoft Windows Server environments.
Condusiv claims that by optimising I/O at the Windows OS level brings down the number of I/Os required for a given workload, with resulting performance gains of up to three times normal.
“By optimising at the application level first, [partners] can compete and win against larger, traditional vendors whose only solution is expensive, rip and replace storage upgrades” said Bruce Hockin, director at channelfusion.
“Partners can also profit from V-locity’s embedded performance benchmark tool that provides a detailed report on I/O from various workloads while offering a before/after performance comparison.”
The distie is hoping to set up a small channel at first, composed of both compute and storage VARs with an eye on disruptive technologies.
“channelfusion’s go-to-market strategy and complimentary technology portfolio provide the perfect vehicle for Condusiv’s I/O acceleration solutions,” said Condusiv UK&I VP Matthew Atkinson.
“We have been impressed with their vision for our partnership and look forward to supporting them in expanding sales of our award winning V-locity software through their partner network,” he added.
