LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS) today announced that it has won Software Vendor of the Year at the European IT & Software Excellence awards. IT Europa’s European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2015 recognise best practices in customer solutions by Systems Integrators, Solution VARs, MSPs and ISVs across Europe.
The Gala Awards dinner took place at the Lancaster London hotel on March 25 to honor this year winners across Europe who have excelled in their approach to using technology and their ability to support a structured distribution channel.
The Nexenta Partner Program is designed to help support partners throughout the lifecycle of the partnership - from initial engagement to joint marketing, sales and support, making it stand out from the competition. Nexenta was announced as Software Vendor of the Year for its strong channel support including our close work with the UK distributor Getech Distribution.
Guy Watts, Managing Director, Getech Ltd, said: “Nexenta’s SDS solution offers an exciting opportunity for us in the storage arena. Our goal is to disrupt the stranglehold that the likes of NetApp and EMC have on the market. After meeting and speaking to a number of key resellers and customers it is clear the market is keen to explore new alternatives to the big hardware storage providers. The Software-Defined world offers a real alternative and Nexenta’s storage is underpinning the data centre of the future. As with all the solutions we supply, Getech will be offering a fully certified technical support team to support the roll out of Nexenta, providing a total supply and support service.”
Don Lopes, Director of Channels and Inside Sales, said: “This award recognizes the close relationship we have with our channel partners. We are proud to help support their businesses and bring value to our customers, while driving differentiation in the market. Being a channel focused company, our partner program is designed to ensure they have the support they need.”
