Global Storage achieves Australian first with VMware disaster recovery as-a-service certification

Providing Flexible and Intelligent Cloud Solutions for Data Protection and Business Continuity


Global Storage is pleased to announce that they are the first Australian partner to have achieved the VMWare Disaster Recovery as-a-service certification. They are one of only six partners with this certification across Asia Pacific.

Gavin Hoffmann, Director of Sales and Marketing, says ‘This recognition from VMWare really highlights our commitment to providing exceptional disaster recovery services to our clients. We’re thrilled that we can showcase our skills and be the leader in ANZ for the development of these services in partnership with VMWare.’
As digital transformation initiatives and cloud adoption continue to accelerate, the need for business continuity, data protection and management has never been greater. The need to reign in data sprawl and extract business value match the enterprise’s quest for visibility, insight and desire to lower capital expenditures and cloud operating costs.

The new certification allows Global Storage to provide services enabling clients to replicate their data and virtual infrastructure to Global Storage cloud environments. The DRaaS model eliminates costly capital expenses and frees IT from spending valuable time on lengthy planning, acquisition, deployment and management cycles or business continuity.

“We are excited with Global Storage’s introduction of our VMware DRaaS solution to the many new markets served by our partner of many years. The combination of our leading solution and Global Storage’s market deep knowledge and innovative services offer reliable customer solutions and dependable local services backed by local expertise,” said Guy Bartram., Director of Product Marketing at VMware, Inc.

Global Storage takes home the NetApp Solution Innovation Award

NetApp recently announced their APAC Partner Excellence Awards for 2021, with Global Storage taking out the Solution Innovation Award for Backup as a Service.

We’re particularly honoured to be the only Australian Partner recognised in the awards.

The partner awards were held virtually to recognise partners that have “demonstrated outstanding commitment” toward customer success and revenue growth.

“We are especially proud to acknowledge our partners’ successes in helping our customers navigate the most challenging period we have ever seen,” NetApp APAC vice president of channel and alliances Wendy Koh said.

This award reflects our work with some major utility providers in Melbourne to deliver data delivery and protection services utilising NetApp technologies. This recent uplift in technology has shortened recovery times while improving ransomware protection whilst enabling our clients to realise efficiencies across their data protection spend.

Outside of this project, Global Storage has consistently delivered revenue growth and net new logos to NetApp through their services.

Veritas honours Global Storage as Growth Partner of the Year

As Queensland drew first State of Origin blood in Sydney last night, Brisbane-based information specialists Intalock was also celebrating, claiming the top honour during the 2016 Veritas Partner Awards.

Veritas Growth Partner of the Year 2016

Honoured during an intimate evening under the Vivid lights, a host of key partners gathered for the inaugural Veritas channel awards, following the company’s split from Symantec earlier this year.

In claiming the Veritas Partner of the Year 2016 award, Intalock was joined on stage by Global Storage, who took out Veritas Growth Partner of the Year 2016, with Dicker Data winning the distribution category.

Recognising the top performing partners who have demonstrated strong business growth during the past 12 months, Datacom, Insight Enterprises, InfoTrust and Insentra also took home awards, while Hitachi Data Systems was recognised as a key alliance partner.

“Veritas has been on a significant journey over the last year,” Veritas Pacific managing director, Louis Tague, said.

“We separated out from Symantec and successfully stood up as an independent company focused solely on information management.

“A substantial part of that successful transition is due to the loyalty, focus and talents of our channel partners.”

Following 10 years operating as a combined entity, Veritas separated from Symantec in February 2016, zoning in on its information management heritage.

As a long-standing partner, Intalock – who claimed both Veritas and Symantec regional partner awards in 2015 – was recognised for its “established revenue based around Veritas offerings”, including a “track record of significant deals won.”

“Over the years we have seen Intalock grow and mature as a business, to the point where they now operate in multiple States and have market leading expertise in all of our key Veritas technology areas,” Tague added.

“Their growth, focus and technical expertise make them a very worthy winner of this top Veritas award”.

With a total of eight awards during the evening, partners ranged from service providers to consulting firm, as well as technology alliances to distribution.

“We’re immensely proud of the vibrant channel partnerships that have evolved around Veritas standing up as an independent company,” Veritas Pacific senior manager of Channels, Janet Docherty, added.

“Some of our channel partners have dealt with us for many years prior to the split, others are brand new partners engaged post-split.

“Some are multi-national companies and others are specialised partners focused on one particular part of the Veritas portfolio. All are essential for a healthy channel landscape.”
