The enterprise division of distributor Tech Data, Azlan, is offering HP resellers a full SAN Health Check to prepare them for future upgrades.
The health checks being offered are specific for HP 3PAR StoreServ and StoreVirtual solutions, testing resilience and performance and giving recommendations for improvement.
Azlan delivers similar services to customers with legacy HP storage platforms like Enterprise Virtual Arrays to help develop a migration strategy to an updated platform.
Jonathan Kaiser, head of product for Azlan’s HP Enterprise Group, said: “With these services, HP partners can help their customers to develop a deep understanding of how their environment is performing, ensure optimum efficiency and identify any areas of under-performance.
“HP is seen as a trusted solution and these professional assessment services can help resellers that don’t perhaps have in-house storage expertise of their own to respond faster and more precisely to customer requirements on storage. It’s a fantastic way for HP partners to offer and to add more value.”
The checks offered to HP partners will be carried out by a qualified storage consultant. They will validate that the customer’s configuration is healthy and conforms to best practice.
Services Azlan offers range from network and storage health checks, to systems consultancy and design as well as implementation services.
