The value-added distributor now distributes Micron’s Client, Enterprise SATA and Enterprise PCIe SSD solutions to channel resellers. As the price of SSD drops and performance increases, thepan-European value-added distributor of innovative IT solutions expects the technology to take a leading role in data access and storage.
David Galton-Fenzi, Zycko’s group sales director, explains: “The SSD enterprise market has grown year-on-year as costs decrease and performance increases. Against this backdrop, Zycko has been looking for a manufacturer at the same time as Micron was seeking a partner to develop the enterprise market for its products. In that sense the timing and nature of this partnership is perfect. There’s a gap in the market that Micron can fill with its cost-effective SSD solutions, known for their exceptional quality, low-latency and reliability.
“The industry-leading read speeds of the Enterprise PCIe SSD is perfect for the rigorous virtual I/O demands of the modern optimised data centre. It’s clear the SSD market is going to quickly grow and Zycko’s reseller network will be well positioned to help their enterprise customers benefit from best-in-class SSD technology.”
Galton-Fenzi concludes: “We are ideally positioned as a specialist storage and networking distributor to understand where SSD fits in the IT estate. We are reaching a tipping point on price and anticipate the technology becoming part of every major business storage network.”
