Computer Storage Services (CSSI) will begin offering PivotStor products to its resellers customers, for resale to end users throughout South Africa.

The announcement is consistent with PivotStor’s strategy of identifying and partnering with leading data storage vendors throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. PivotStor delivers data protection products providing mid- and large-sized firms with best-of-breed data protection, coupled with proven reliability and cost-effective performance.
“We have built our reputation on providing our customers with established products that offer solid value,” says James Grcic, MD of Computer Storage Services (CSSI). “As a company, PivotStor may be new to the marketplace, but we are impressed by the experience of their management team, and the quality of the products they offer.
"We are also pleased by their commitment to channel sales, enabling our partners to sell products that clearly differentiate and distinguish them from competitors at a price point that benefits all parties. We are glad to be working with PivotStor.”
PivotStor recently introduced its AP line of tape libraries, designed to provide reliable, automated data protection for organizations that require affordable unattended data protection, and have outgrown the capabilities of entry-level tape autoloaders.
Offering cost effectiveness not available in most tape automation, PivotStor’s AP libraries can more easily free-up valuable IT resources, further minimise human error, backup more data quickly, and generate offsite archive copies of corporate-critical data to meet growing data retention requirements, and reinforce companies’ business continuity plans.
“Distributors such as CSSI are key to our success,” says Martin Vine, PivotStor’s vice-president of sales: EMEA. “They understand their markets, and appreciate the value of the channel. As a firm focused solely on channel sales, we are dedicated to working with firms like CSSI to deliver solutions that cement trust-based relationships between resellers and end-users.
"Our relationship with CSSI will help us achieve our goals, even as we provide them with products that clearly and positively differentiate them from their competitors.”
