CLEARWATER, Fla., July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced it will offer a new generation of data protection solutions from EMC®, the world's largest backup provider, to Tech Data's channel of resellers.

"Tech Data's enthusiastic adoption of the full range of new products that EMC announced today reflects their commitment to providing solutions that address the protection of emerging transformational IT environments, and their understanding of the rapidly changing IT landscape," said Peter Smails, senior director, Product Marketing, EMC Backup Recovery Systems Division. "At EMC, we are delivering data protection capabilities that, simply stated, users have not had access to before.
