Pinnacle has signed a new distribution partnership with leading supplier of end-to-end Ethernet and InfiniBand intelligent interconnect solutions and services for servers, storage, and hyper-converged infrastructure — Mellanox Technologies.
In September 2017 Pinnacle committed to investing heavily in product and service solutions which offer clients ICT architecture that is tailor-made to fit the specific requirements of unique client and/or project-based deployments through its Pinnacle Enterprise Solutions (Pinnes) division.
Mellanox Technologies was therefore a perfect addition to this already successful enterprise focussed platform.
“Globally, the volume of data which is stored, processed and analysed is increasing at a phenomenal rate; and, to utilise this data effectively, organisations need increased processing power, capacity, reliability, predictability and above all, greater bandwidth,” says Pinnes chief technical officer, Johan Lötter.
“Solutions from Mellanox Technologies support all of these requirements by delivering high bandwidth, great value and an advanced range of features which drive enhanced application performance.
“These flexible, innovative solutions also allow organisations to scale their infrastructure in-line with business demands, meaning lower CAPEX and lower OPEX – leaving budget available for additional compute and storage.”
Director of sales for Mellanox Technologies, Yael Birk Hoter-Ishay remarks that: “There exists no limitation as to the customers who would benefit from a Mellanox Technologies solutions regardless of deployment. Mellanox networking solutions increase data centre efficiency by providing the highest throughput and lowest latency, delivering data faster to applications and unlocking system performance.”

EMEA distribution director, Syd Virdi states that: “As an established distributor offering a comprehensive range of technologies, Pinnacle not only increases the awareness of new technologies, but their exciting portfolio offers a number of opportunities to position bundled solutions to a previously untapped customer-base.
“Moreover, Mellanox is a natural addition to Pinnacle’s line card and continues their tradition of supporting technology partners which deliver next generation performance for a huge range of deployments.
“Primarily, we will work with Pinnes to recruit and enable new partners in order to sell and integrate our portfolio into their solutions. We see our the relationship as the ideal next step to further grow incremental sales especially as more and more customers see the benefits of our technology.
