Earlier this week Softcat picked up two awards from new partner Pure Storage: Value Add Reseller H1FY2015, and Reseller Technical Specialist H1FY2015. Krishna Keshvara from Softcat’s data centre infrastructure team, accepted the awards from Vince Blackall, Pure Storage’s director of channels EMEA.

Softcat established its partnership with Pure Storage 18 months ago as their first UK channel partner and have quickly identified a requirement for Pure’s FlashArray storage product within its customer base.

Sam Routledge, solutions director at Softcat said, “Customers demand so much more from their storage nowadays. It’s difficult to predict how much storage you’ll need in a year’s time, and there’s a real requirement for scalable, available storage. FlashArray fills this need."

He added, “Pure Storage’s FlashArray family is such an exciting product range to be able to provide customers with, and I think both these awards reflect how incredibly hard our sales teams have worked to promote this new product in the marketplace. As a company we pride ourselves on keeping our finger on the pulse when it comes to new products, and when we encounter products making waves like FlashArray is, we can’t help but get excited about it, and I think we’ve definitely transferred this excitement to our customers. We look forward to continuing to grow with Pure Storage.”

”These awards reflect the incredible work of everyone at Softcat over the last 18 months to bring Pure Storage’s All Flash Arrays to customers in the UK,” said Steven Rose, VP EMEA for Pure Storage. “This is enormously exciting technology, bringing with it significant business benefits for all kinds of organisation – but it needs exceptional channel partners like Softcat to bring it to market, articulate the specific benefits for each customer and provide the support, assistance and integration that Softcat is known for within the industry.”
