Datapac becomes an EMC Premier Partner in Ireland
Datapac announces 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.”
"At Barretstown, we rebuild the lives of children, and their families, affected by childhood cancer and other serious illnesses. We serve 5,000 campers a year and have 1200 volunteers each year. Communication is crucially important and Datapac has helped us to streamline, improve and ensure efficiency."
"Datapac has provided us with a fantastic product and world-class levels of service and support. Whenever people ask me about our experience with Datapac I’m always ready to sing their praises and I would happily recommend their services to any organisation."
"For many years Datapac has been our sole supplier for the maintenance of Personal Computers and Peripherals in Ireland. Through their Service Centres in Wexford and Dublin, Datapac provides excellent support to our businesses throughout the country and consistently meets the SLA targets which we have set. The skill, expertise and experience of their engineers and other technical support personnel are of the highest standard."
“The value of dealing with an HP Gold partner in this process can’t be underestimated. Datapac provide us with a local touch and can cover the full range of our IT requirements, but when there is a specific technical requirement like this, they can bring the specialist technical resources of HP to the table. HP and Datapac had a thorough discussion with us around our requirement - and had really done their homework - and then were able to provide us with a very highly specified test platform for us to prove the application on before we committed to purchase.”
Datapac understands our needs and requirements and has the expertise and experience to follow through on all our requests. Our constant need to reduce costs has been assisted by Datapac's ability to suggest alternative solutions and methods whilst improving both efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Datapac is akin to having an IT department on site that we simply could not provide ourselves.
