Datacentre transformation VAD targets matrix of fast-growing hybrid cloud and DevOps opportunities with new vendor partner
BigTec UK has signed a distribution agreement with Morpheus Data, bringing the US-based vendor’s infrastructure-agnostic cloud management and orchestration platform into its reference architecture for the web-scale software defined datacentre (SDDC). Morpheus has chosen BigTec to propel its 2016 expansion plans into the EMEA region, providing new reseller partner opportunities to satisfy demand for enterprise DevOps and hybrid cloud management, as part of its 100% channel-only approach.
“Morpheus empowers IT directors to take control over their entire hybrid, multi-cloud environments, delivering complete visibility, management and analytics so that – for the first time – the circumstances of location, infrastructure and choice of hypervisor are irrelevant to driving value, business agility and good governance,” said Jason Dance, managing director at BigTec UK. “It’s a keystone at the top of our solution stack, because without it capitalising on the software-defined, virtual IT cloud revolution risks being an expensive and time-consuming management headache. Assured compliance, improved DevOps, lower infrastructure costs, more IT automation, stamping out of ‘shadow IT’ – these are just some of the requirements that reseller partners can address with Morpheus’ single management console for sprawling hybrid environments.”
BigTec UK is committing product management and sales resources to Morpheus’ expansion, as well as comprehensive marketing, value-added services and logistical support, to recruit partners and deliver opportunities. The companies’ first objective is to build out a dedicated channel community of the right partners, and deliver rapid sales growth.
“BigTec have an unmatched grasp and understanding of the next generation hybrid and hyper converged datacentre. We value their experience with our contemporaries and their depth and breadth of expertise as a value-added distributor,” said Jeff Drazan, chairman of Morpheus Data.
The Morpheus platform is a game changing technology for partners, enabling them to bring a hybrid cloud tool to their customers and enter conversations where typical hardware/software partners have been unsuccessful. This allows them to transform their own businesses as well as supporting transformation and modernisation within their clients.
