CTERA’s Award-Winning Storage Solutions Now Accessible to SYNNEX’ more than 15,000 Resellers in North America

Palo Alto, Calif., October 4, 2012 — / — CTERA Networks, the leader in cloud storage enablement today announced a collaboration with SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services. SYNNEX’s CONVERGESolv group offers to its reseller and MSP customers CTERA’s all-in-one storage, backup and file sharing solutions that integrate customer-premises managed appliances and software agents with secure cloud storage through SYNNEX’s CLOUDSolv portal. By partnering with SYNNEX, CTERA further extends its reach and commitment to the North America channel, providing new opportunities for resellers that seek to offer cloud storage services while retaining the usability and speed of traditional network storage solutions.

CTERA provides an easy entry into cloud storage, mitigating customers’ concerns about cloud security and performance, by using a hybrid solution that delivers LAN-speed access and end-to-end security. The solution includes out-of-the-box NAS, backup, file collaboration, and mobile access. By integrating all these functions into a single solution, CTERA greatly reduces the complexity and the cost of ownership compared to disparate file and backup server products, ideal for the limited budgets of small businesses.

“Hybrid cloud storage is a major growth area, especially in the SMB market,” said Clay Rogers, Director of Channel Development, at CTERA Networks. “By combining SYNNEX’ best-in-class distribution expertise and extensive reseller base with CTERA’s channel-ready solution, we are creating a high-margin opportunity for resellers to enter the cloud storage space with a managed service that requires minimal upfront investment.”

With CTERA, resellers can offer a managed storage service they fully control and brand. Each reseller receives access to its own management portal that allows custom service plans, remote administration and central monitoring.  Resellers can have the choice of launching their offering based on the SYNNEX CLOUDSolv portal or leverage their own datacenter for running their private cloud.

“Cloud computing is an important strategic direction for us,” said Bob Stegner, Senior Vice President Marketing, North America, SYNNEX Corporation. “With CTERA, our partners now have a comprehensive SMB storage solution that allows them to ease customers into the cloud at their own pace.  The CTERA solution offers our partners flexibility and control over branding, pricing and backend cloud storage infrastructure.”

With CTERA, SYNNEX is arming MSPs and resellers with one of the industry’s most complete and cost-effective SMB and branch office storage solutions, delivering the following:

  • Choice of hardware: Cloud storage gateway appliances ranging from 2-bay to 8-bay systems, supporting RAID, NAS and thin snapshots with a simple web-based management interface.
  • Local Backup: Managed backup agents for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. Application aware backup for Exchange, Active Directory and SQL Server, including bare-metal and single mailbox recovery options.
  • Cloud Backup: Automatic cloud replication, using deduplication and encryption for maximum security and WAN efficiency.
  • Collaboration: Web-based interface allowing users to create project workspaces and invite users without requiring administrator intervention.
  • Mobile App: iOS and Android apps for easy and secure data access from anywhere.
  • Central Management: Remote administration and automatic firmware updates, dramatically minimizing the need for on-site visits and allowing centralized control over numerous customer sites from a single console.
