Tech Access takes Quantum leap with new franchise
Tech Access’ Saleh Tarin says the tie-up with Quantum strengthens its data protection and management offering.

Storage distributor Tech Access has struck an agreement with Quantum that will see it carry its enterprise-class disk and tape storage solutions in the Middle East and North Africa.

The Dubai-based outfit will distribute Quantum's Scalar i-series of tape libraries and DXi disk-based back-up and deduplication products to organisations that require scalable enterprise-class solutions.

It will also provide solutions based on Quantum's StorNext software to meet the growing demands in the management of unstructured data, focusing on resellers that target sectors such as local government, oil and gas, manufacturing, media and financial services.

Saleh Tarin, executive VP at Tech Access, insists the alliance will benefit organisations in the MENA region that are under increasing pressure from regulatory officials to streamline their data management infrastructures.

"By adding Quantum's Scalar series of tape libraries, DXi disk-based back-up and deduplication products and StorNext data management software, our customers can now benefit from a comprehensive set of data protection and management solutions to enable them to meet these requirements," commented Tarin.

Tech Access, which also specialises in products from vendors such as Sun and Hitachi Data Systems, has offices in several regional markets including Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Steve Mackey, area sales director EMEA at NYSE-listed Quantum, insists this reach makes it an attractive partner.

"Its strong ties with businesses within these regions and expertise in data management and infrastructure further enhance its value as a partner," said Mackey. "I'm confident that Quantum and Tech Access can collectively help businesses achieve a long-term solution to managing data growth, back-up, recovery and archive."
