Dot Hill Systems Corp. has signed a distribution agreement with Scientific Digital Business Pte Ltd (SDB) of Singapore, a mass storage and imaging product distributor in Southeast Asia. The agreement enables SDB's regional offices, value-added resellers, and systems integrators to distribute Dot Hill's data storage systems and storage networking solutions throughout the region.
"We are very pleased to be working with Dot Hill to distribute its reliable, flexible SANnet and Axis product lines," said Wilson Chia, managing director of SDB Group. "Dot Hill's versatile storage networking products offer our resellers' customers many options. SANnet systems are an excellent fit with our existing storage solutions, and we look forward to introducing Dot Hill to our resellers."
Dot Hill said it looked to SDB because of its experience with storage networking products. "We selected SDB because they understand storage networking and have proven to be a successful distributor. They have been in business since 1989 and distribute complementary products from JNI, Gadzoox, Bakbone and StorageTek," said Paul Makhail, Dot Hill's vice president Asia Pacific. "Their experienced product management team has implemented storage area networks and realizes the benefits Dot Hill's SANnet and Axis bring to storage infrastructure. We look forward to working with SDB offices in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand to promote Dot Hill's storage solutions."
SANnet, Dot Hill's family of storage systems, comprises mix-and-match components that the company said can be customized by interface, capacity requirements, type of RAID protection, and level of fault-tolerance.
