(Gawkwire.com) – Zerowait today announced the opening of their Sydney, Australia office and depot. Laurence Jones, the new Australian Managing Director, is focused on providing Australian NetApp customers with cost effective alternatives to NetApp solutions, from complete off -lease transferable license systems to next business day support for out of warranty systems.
“In today’s cost conscious economy, many customers are looking to extend the life and ROI of their NetApp systems,” says Mr. Jones. “Zerowait’s extensive inventory and deep product knowledge allow customers to extend the life of their systems well beyond what NetApp advises, deferring expensive storage purchases. In many cases, older units can be re-provisioned for secondary applications, DR solutions or archival applications, significantly extending the ROI on these units.”
Rob Robinson, Vice President of Sales, said, “Many of our customers now take advantage of our off lease units with transferable licenses when they are provisioning new applications. We can often provide a recent, high end system for less than half the cost of a new system, while offering better performance and larger expansion capabilities. When it comes time to expand, our shelves and drives are often as much as 75% less than the cost of new storage. And while we hope that clients will select Zerowait as their support partner, all of our off lease units are eligible for NetApp support.”
“With the addition of our SimplStor product line, we can now provide complete storage solutions for our clients, from front line to archive,” added Mike Linett, President of Zerowait. “SimplStor offers easily extensible, single name space disk archive storage for less than the cost of tape. Combined with our off lease NetApp systems andenterprise class support, we can now offer Australian customers the cost savings that have built our business in the US and Europe. Zerowait can now offer local service around the world.”
