Data management solutions firm CommVault has signed up services outfit Getronics as a regional distributor.
Dubai-based Getronics will develop routes-to-market for CommVault's full suite of data management solutions throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The vendor's solutions focus on high-performance data protection, universal availability and simplified management of data on complex storage networks.
Getronics is CommVault's first channel distribution partner focused specifically on the MENA market.
"We believe that an important way to penetrate the data protection market is by working with distributors in the local market areas," said Steven Rose, CommVault's EMEA vice president.
"Through an extensive network of qualified service partners, Getronics has established a solid reputation in the Middle East and North Africa and has a full-service organisation to provide immediate local support," he added.
Western Digital signs up ex-ATI exec to run EMEA Hard drive firm Western Digital (WD) has appointed former ATI executive Peter Edinger to head its EMEA operation.
He takes over the duties previously handled by Klaas de Vos, who left the vendor in August last year.
The appointment of Edinger last week completes a six-month search for a successor to De Vos. Worldwide sales boss Scott Davis had been overseeing the EMEA business during that time, but will now pass the baton to Edinger.
"Peter's broad technology background and keen customer relationship skills will benefit WD as digital storage becomes increasingly prevalent in virtually every part of our consumer and commercial lives," said Davis. "His leadership will be instrumental to WD's ongoing expansion into new markets for its products and increased penetration into traditional segments in the region."
