Datapac becomes an EMC Premier Partner in Ireland

Datapac, Ireland's largest indigenous ICT solutions provider, today announced that it has achieved Premier Partner status with EMC. This follows a period of significant growth for Datapac in its enterprise solutions business including a number of high profile customer wins.

With the continuing rapid growth in data volumes, many Irish businesses have reached the point where storage requirements have outgrown the space and performance of their existing infrastructures. Datapac has been tasked with resolving and managing these issues for a large number of Irish organisations, providing expanded or new storage solutions to meet their evolving needs. Enterprise storage customers include Topaz and Concern Worldwide.

Datapac's newly elevated partner status with EMC provides customers with deeper access and insight into emerging trends and technologies from the market leader for unified storage. Datapac's Premier Partner designation follows a period of extensive technical and business development training in conjunction with EMC. It means that Datapac can provide more advanced knowledge, architecture and implementation of EMC-based solutions.

Gerry Murray, Ireland Country Manager at EMC, said, "Datapac has proven itself to be a highly experienced and trusted advisor to its customer base in relation to unified storage and EMC technologies. Datapac's storage business has enjoyed significant growth due to our collaborative approach to improving enterprise solutions for Irish organisations. We are looking forward to the continued success of our enhanced partnership with Datapac."

Patrick Kickham, director, Datapac, said, "EMC is the global market leader for unified storage products and solutions. By becoming a Premier Partner, it demonstrates Datapac's expertise and proven ability to design and deliver industry-leading architectures and solutions. Our sales, marketing and technical colleagues have shown great commitment to achieve this elevated partner status. With a great team in place and a very strong pipeline, we anticipate an even more successful year ahead."
