LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SED International Holdings, Inc. (OTC: SEDN), an established multinational distributor of leading computer technology, components, and IT storage solutions was recently chosen by Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX) as one of its top distributors to help further penetrate the surveillance market in the U.S.
“Seagate is one of the premier suppliers of storage solutions in the world. Their brand and reputation is second to none in the industry. Seagate and SED have a relationship going back decades. Since my team and I joined SED last fall, I have had the opportunity to get to know various executives across the Seagate organization. They are a first class organization and have demonstrated unwavering support for SED during our rebuilding process. SED is excited to further enhance its relationship with Seagate,” said Sham Gad, chairman and chief executive officer of SED.
“We are pleased to expand our distribution strategy with a highly regarded distributor as SED International. With a well-established customer base in the surveillance industry, Seagate looks to leverage those existing relationships to bring our portfolio of high-performance surveillance hard drives to manufacturers and resellers across the United States,” said Bill White, Seagate executive director of sales Americas distribution.
Seagate’s Surveillance HDD addresses the need for scaling surveillance solutions leveraging high-resolution cameras with cost-effective performance and durability. With new features to support the drive in NAS and RAID systems, which represent large opportunities for growth in the surveillance space, security professionals can build scalable systems to not only support large streaming workloads but also improve drive reliability and reduce data loss in these demanding systems resulting in lower field maintenance and returns.
“Surveillance is a very attractive end market today and represents an opportunity for SED to continue refining its focus with a preeminent brand like Seagate. To ensure a win-win for both sides, Seagate is supporting this initiative with a comprehensive go-to-market strategy that delivers their value proposition to the surveillance channel,” said Gad.
