Solid-state drive (SSD) manufacturer OCZ Technology Group Inc. has entered into a distribution agreement with Tech Data. Under the terms of the agreement, Tech Data’s Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (AIS) Division is now authorized to distribute OCZ’s complete portfolio of flash-based SSDs and associated software solutions.
“The signing of Tech Data to a platinum distribution agreement is a key milestone for OCZ as we evolve our sales strategy globally,” says Wayne Eisenberg, OCZ’s senior vice president of sales.
Tech Data’s AIS Division supports more than 17,500 VARs specializing data center and virtualization. VARs can now offer the combination OCZ’s Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSDs and VXL Cache & Virtualization software for a virtual performance system designed to accelerate VM applications. Additionally, OCZ’s plug-and-play, integrated hardware/software ZD-XL SQL Accelerator is another well-positioned product for AIS distribution.
Tech Data’s AIS Division will also distribute OCZ’s popular Deneva 2 SATA III SSDs and Talos 2 SAS SSDs for enterprise and small-to-medium-sized business (SMB) applications as well as the complete range of award-winning high-performance SSDs for client applications.
To help drive and support the Tech Data distribution channel and encourage VAR participation, OCZ developed its Elite VAR Program (EVP). The program provides authorized Tech Data AIS Division VARs with sales incentives, product training, service levels, technical support and resources in support of OCZ’s enterprise product line card.
