By Simon Meredith | 17th October 2017

Basingstoke, 17 October 2017 – Azlan, a specialised solution within the Tech Data (Nasdaq: TECD) portfolio, has upgraded the Azlan Business Solutions Centre (BSC) in the UK to provide partners with access to the latest emerging technologies from

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) including:

  • Synergy (HPE’s Composable Infrastructure)
  • SimpliVity (HPE’s newly-acquired Hyper-Converged offering)
  • Nimble (HPE’s newly-acquired, intelligent flash storage solution)

In addition, HPE BladeSystem, Hybrid and all-flash 3PAR arrays and StoreOnce are available for demonstration and are fully-integrated with other leading vendor technologies, such as VMware and Veeam as well as the HPE OneView management platform.

Partners can make use of the BSC free of charge, to run demonstrations and proof of concept testing, training sessions and end-customer events.

John Hutchinson, HPE DataCenter Solutions and Technology Consultant for Azlan UK said: “The additional investment in the BSC means we will be adding even more value to our partners and giving them every opportunity to demonstrate the full potential of HPE’s newest solutions and technologies. We can bring HPE’s very latest solutions together with leading products from other vendors, so resellers can give customers a complete picture and make a really strong impression. It’s a powerful and invaluable resource and by bringing end-users into the BSC, partners can give their customers the confidence to invest. It also gives them the chance to explore the customer’s business needs afresh and often uncover opportunities that are greater than they initially thought.”

Andrew Stuart, HPE Business Unit Director, UK, said: “The upgrade of the BSC to include the emerging products from HPE is core to our strategy of bringing these new technologies to market. It will provide the education and confidence that our partners need when promoting Hybrid IT solutions to their client base.”

Azlan has scheduled demonstration and training events, which include specific briefings and hands-on sessions around SimpliVity, Synergy and Nimble, most of which will be new to the majority of HPE partners.

The BSC is a unique facility, equipped with the latest enterprise technologies from a wide range of key vendor partners. Azlan’s consultants are available to assist partners in setting up and running demonstrations.
