Attention VARs and Resellers: Looking for the Next VMware?

StarWind Does for Storage What VMware Did for Servers

Burlington, Mass. – March 10, 2009 – StarWind Software, a leading global provider of storage virtualization, is inviting resellers to enhance their solution portfolios with storage virtualization. StarWind is very committed to working with resellers and distributors in the U.S. and globally to offer customers a leading storage virtualization solution that complements server virtualization products from VMware, Hyper-V and XenServer.

StarWind iSCSI SAN has significant brand recognition among thousands of IT professionals and customers in over 50 countries and resellers have benefitted from a close relationship with StarWind over the past five years. Because StarWind only sells software and does not provide professional services, authorized VARs have benefitted from new projects including integration, installation and administration of StarWind solutions. In addition, resellers found StarWind products ideal for building complete solutions for customers such as virtualization, disaster recovery and business continuity.

"We invite new resellers to join us in offering a proven and trusted storage virtualization solution that has a five-year track record with thousands of customers worldwide. With our product, VARs can enhance their virtualization strategy with a storage virtualization product that perfectly complements VMware, Hyper-V and XenServer,” said Zorian Rotenberg, StarWind president and CEO. He continued, "We are very committed to our channel partners because they add great value with their expertise in storage, data protection and disaster recovery. A lot of our success is a direct result of our VARs and we thank them for it.”

StarWind is looking to accelerate the day of "100 percent virtualization" and is looking to partner with VARs who share this vision. New VARs will receive leads through StarWind's direct marketing programs which give them a wider reach to new customers globally. Resellers will also be supported and assisted in selling StarWind IP SAN products by a team of product specialists and channel managers who are there to help with product expertise and sound advice. StarWind resellers also have access to sales and marketing assistance, company listing on the StarWind website, free software licenses, product training and priority access to technical support.
