WD has added a new dimension to its relationship with value-added storage distributor Hammer, giving the firm access to its Sentinel ultra-compact unified NAS storage boxes and Arkeia business network backup products and solutions in the UK and Nordics.
The agreement also gives Hammer sole distribution rights to the Arkeia series in the UK market. The Arkeia solutions offer enterprise standard backup features to SMEs in a simple package, according to WD, and are already in use on over 10,000 customer networks across the globe.
Meanwhile, the Sentinel X-Series Network Storage Servers and the S-Series Ultra-compact Storage Plus Servers provide secure centralised storage, complete data protection, and remote file access, protecting data so it can be securely accessed from anywhere.
“This expansion reinforces our market position as a specialist in advanced technology solutions for businesses. It equally reinforces our commitment to working hand in hand with our partners, to whom we strive to offer the best range of solutions with which they can respond effectively and easily to the demands of the current market, all backed by our unique value-add approach,” said Hammer MD James Ward.
“Our UK and Nordics sales teams are looking forward to the opportunity to expand their WD offering to customers, both new and established.”
“Our goal is to provide value to small- and medium-sized organisations with our WD Arkeia and WD Sentinel product range and we believe that Hammer is the right partner to help us achieve this in the UK,” added Fred Milon, EMEA sales director at WD.
