Datacentrix has been given the title of South Africa’s only Tier One authorised reseller and service partner by Infinidat.

According to Graeme Dendy, services manager for the converged solutions team at Datacentrix, the Infinidat high performance enterprise solutions are an excellent addition to Datacentrix’ storage offering. “Infinidat has been recognised for its high performing, quality solutions and excellent customer experience by world-leading research and advisory company,” he says. “Gartner, in its January 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Primary Storage, and also as a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage Arrays.

“As a company that aims to provide clients with a more cost-effective, on-premises and cloud storage-as-a-service (STaaS) experience, we can certainly attest to the reliability of Infinidat’s solutions, having not seen a single outage over the local installed base since our partnership kicked off early last year.

“Infinidat provides an excellent offering, and is well placed in the marketplace, particularly at the mid-sized to enterprise level,” Dendy adds. “Not only is the product set straightforward for our technical engineers to work on, our clients are also finding it extremely easy to use.”

At a Tier One level, Datacentrix enjoys a direct partnership with Infinidat, and has been trained to install and perform break/fix aftersales and warranty services.
