With more than 40 years of experience in IT distribution, Tech Data provides a broad range of product lines, logistics capabilities and value-added services that enable resellers to support the technology needs of end users of all sizes, across all industries. Beginning today, Tech Data's channel of resellers across the U.S. now have access to Unitrends' unrivaled Unified Data Protection™ offering, which includes Unitrends Enterprise Backup™, the company's software-only backup and recovery virtual appliance, and Unitrends Recovery Series, its family of scalable backup and recovery physical appliances.

"We are always in search of market-leading solutions to offer our channel of solution providers that will complement their existing product portfolio," said Stacy Nethercoat, vice president, Product Marketing, Software and Cloud Services at Tech Data. "When it comes to backup and recovery, partnering with Unitrends was an easy decision because its technology is innovative, affordable and easy to use. Additionally, we are now able to offer heterogeneous data protection at the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry."

"Our partnership with Tech Data is a win for all involved," said Bob Gagnon, vice president of Channel Sales at Unitrends. "Tech Data is able to unlock new revenue streams with our Unified Data Protection offering. End users can purchase Unitrends' heterogeneous data protection solutions through their favorite reseller. And we are able to reach a new reseller base, which is extremely beneficial as we continue to rapidly expand our channel program."

Limited-Time Product Offer Kicks Off Strategic Partnership  To kick off the partnership, Unitrends and Tech Data are running a limited-time promotion for end users. Beginning today, any company that purchases a Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS) server from a Tech Data reseller will receive a free, 5 TB license of Unitrends Enterprise Backup, worth $24,000 in value. The software comes preloaded on a USB drive – which is included inside the box – for easy set-up and deployment.

In June of this year, Unitrends announced Unified Data Protection for the Cisco UCS, which combines the power of Unitrends Enterprise Backup with Cisco's integrated compute platform. This dynamic combination transforms data centers by bringing computing, networking, storage access and virtualization together with backup, archiving, instant recovery and disaster recovery in a single solution. With Unitrends Enterprise Backup, companies receive enterprise-class, shrink-wrapped data protection for all UCS configuration elements, including IOS router configurations, CIMC configurations, firmware versions, and storage and fabric interconnect profiles.
