Rotkreuz, 29 May 2015 – The successful partnership that Bechtle and SimpliVity have embarked on in July 2014 in Germany has now prompted Bechtle to take this collaboration to the Swiss market. Thanks to its twenty-eight certified SimpliVity system engineers and 12 Competence Centres—one of which is located in Western Switzerland—Bechtle boasts the highest available partner status, Platinum Partner, which guarantees Bechtle access to sales support, exclusive product expertise and training. As a value-added reseller, Bechtle provides full market coverage and delivers comprehensive services and virtualisation expertise for SimpliVity projects. SimpliVity’s OmniCube is a platform that unifies all core IT infrastructure functionality such as processing, storage, datastores and networking in a single product. It also includes functions like virtualisation, WAN optimisation and deduplication. Its integrated management software, OmniStack, lets businesses manage their entire IT infrastructure while reducing their investment and operation costs.
SimpliVity is a fast-emerging manufacturer of third-generation IT infrastructure, so-called hyper converged infrastructure. Founded in late 2009, SimpliVity currently employs some 300 workers. Its head office is in Westborough, Massachusetts, and its European headquarters are located in Munich, Germany. Its innovative technology lets businesses manage a virtualised data centre from a single software-based platform.
Simplified IT Infrastructure.
With SimpliVity technology, functionality can be unified into a single environment using standard hardware—a feat that would normally require multiple products from various manufacturers. The software is easy to use and lets administrators manage the entire virtual infrastructure from a single interface. Hundreds of projects featuring SimpliVity solutions attest to its great market potential, with customers ranging from medium-sized businesses to large corporations that rely on virtualisation, managed, or cloud services, or wish to modernise and consolidate their computer centres. OmniCube is a powerful data centre building block that assimilates the core functions of a server and storage, including backup and recovery options, in addition to a wide range of advanced functionality such as data deduplication and cloud services. The platform also unifies many important infrastructure services and remote management in a simple, easy-to-use interface.
Leading the Way with Innovation for Enterprise Customers.
As a new Platinum Partner, Bechtle has attained the highest level of SimpliVity certification and the company’s twenty-eight certified software engineers ensure that Bechtle customers benefit from top-tier SimpliVity expertise.
