NextIO, a leader in I/O consolidation and virtualization solutions, today announced a distributor agreement with Promark Technology, Inc. to resell NextIO's products to customers throughout North America. As part of the agreement, Promark will be adding NextIO's vNET product suite to its portfolio of data center solutions to help companies deploy and manage complex server I/O.
Building on recent successes in Europe, Russia and Asia, this agreement signifies NextIO's continued momentum in North America through delivering solutions that solve common data center I/O problems. Promark will distribute NextIO's vNET top of rack appliance to value added resellers and system integrators throughout the region.
"Promark represents a major opportunity for NextIO to bring advanced I/O technologies to the North American marketplace where customers are looking for smarter alternatives that help reduce complexity and get their data centers under control," said Mike Heumann, senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing for NextIO. "Promark is a dynamic company that brings great value and innovation to their resellers with not only the products they offer but with their professional services expertise."
Charles Bass, VP of alliances at Promark, added: "NextIO's vNET solution offers tremendous value for our customers. I'm confident that together we'll drive growth of I/O virtualization because we now have a very practical solution to address traditional cabling challenges and over-provisioning of equipment in the data center."
NextIO's vNET solution simplifies the deployment and management of complex server I/O by consolidating and virtualizing I/O resources, resulting in up to 40% lower capital expenses and 60% lower operational expenses throughout the product lifecycle. vNET removes layers of data center complexity often found in traditional server I/O deployments, making servers easier to deploy, manage and service.
