Gridstore is the mother of channel invention

gridstoreSoftware storage company Gridstore – a vendor that specialises in stuff optimised for Hyper-V and Windows Server, said it is growing one of its partner programmes.

It is expanding its EMEA Accelerate Partner Programme. That’s given rise to rapture with Gridstore signing up NexStor Ltd – a vendor independent data systems integrator.

Its partner programme is intended to give tools, resources and experience to partners that want to sell software defined solutions (SDS).

SDS, said Andy Hill, BP of EMEA sales, will come of age this year. “It will move away from being a nebulous buzzword, becoming a reality for a great number of customers, and we are keen to ensure our partners are at the forefront of the opportunity this presents.”

Rob Townsend, who runs NexStor in the UK, said that Gridstore’s programme will let it expand in the markets it covers. “Being part of this highly network of value added resellers and service providers gives us the opportunity to leverage the myriad of assets and programmes [Gridstore] provides,” he said.

Hill said the market is worth more than £11 billion a year and that gives its channel partners room to grow.
