Italian hyperconverged vendor signs with French distributor

Italy's Syneto has signed a distribution agreement with Infodip, which will see Syneto’s new HYPERSeries 3000 hyperconverged platforms sold throughout France via Infodip’s data storage and video surveillance divisions.

Earlier this week, US-headquartered Scale Computing signed a distribution deal with CMS for hyperconverged storage, server and virtualisation solutions covering the UK and Ireland.

Syneto’s partnership with Paris-based Infodip, which also provides bespoke product integration including system configuration, cabling, racking and technical services, is a key appointment for the vendor in France. Syneto will replace several traditional mid-range storage array vendors within Infodip’s current product portfolio.

Syneto’s solutions will be offered through Infodip’s storage and integration division, which caters to the needs of resellers and system integrators, across an extensive range of vertical markets. Syneto will also form a key part of the Infodip security division’s product portfolio, fulfilling the storage requirements for its surveillance solutions.

Infodip was keen to expand the company’s product portfolio with a software-defined hyperconverged solution that includes a smart data services layer, integrated disaster recovery, file sharing and virtualisation. It was also key to identify a solution that was “user-friendly and highly affordable”, it said.

Stephane Motillon, president at Infodip, said: “Syneto's products enable us to provide our partners and customers with a hyperconverged infrastructure, which combines built-in back up and disaster recovery. Syneto’s hyperconverged solutions reduce administration times, costs and the likelihood of data security breaches, and they shorten recovery times, all common problems and key concerns faced by end users today.”

Infodip will offer Syneto’s products to companies in the manufacturing, education, finance, engineering, media, industrial, scientific and the public sectors, as well as larger enterprises in aviation, space exploration and transportation.

Rick Dudson, VP sales EMEA at Syneto, said: “Infodip is an incredibly well respected partner and has an unparalleled understanding of the French market. This partnership will help us to firmly establish our presence in France across numerous vertical sectors, with the added benefit of having access to Infodip’s incredible customer base.”
