16th August, 2011 –
Iomega International S.A. (“Iomega”), a world leader in data storage solutions for small and medium-sized businesses and consumers, signed an agreement granting distribution rights for Iomega products in Hong Kong to ACW Distribution (HK) Ltd (“ACW”).
Iomega announces this Hong Kong distribution agreement with ACW, August 16th, 2011. Iomega, a subsidiary of Iomega Corporation, an EMC company (NYSE: EMC) and a global leader in data protection, announced the agreement that will ensure that partners and other value add resellers will have increased access to the full range of Iomega network attached storage (NAS) products throughout Hong Kong. Effective immediately, this relationship will make available Iomega professional solutions to ACW’s value added reseller base.
“Iomega was keen to work with ACW because it has a large reseller partner base with strong expertise in data storage that is seeking new ways to serve the entry level NAS market,” says Rajeev Mukul, vice president - APJ sales for Iomega. “Because of ACW’s’ ability to support us and our customers in the planning and implementation of IT projects across Hong Kong, Iomega is able to make our professional network storage solutions available on an even broader scale."
The Iomega family of NAS products complements the EMC solutions. Iomega NAS products are particularly suited as remote NAS devices that link back to main EMC solutions in company head offices. The Iomega family of network storage solutions helps customers maximize cost savings and improve data protection. Iomega’s NAS servers store, manage and protect valuable files at an affordable price. Incorporating EMC’s world-class enterprise storage and security technologies, Iomega® StorCenter™ network-attached storage solutions offer advanced storage, security and content sharing that is easy to use and affordable. Available for PC, Mac® and Linux® environments and in desktop and rackmount form factors, Iomega NAS servers feature storage capacity ranging from 1TB to 36TB, with fast installation and an intuitive web-based interface, as well as the most cost-effective shared storage for VMware® virtualized environments.
“Iomega solutions incorporate technology from multiple parts of EMC, including technology from both VMware and RSA®, including virtualization and encryption technology, respectively,” says Eddie Chu, Sales Director of ACW Distribution. “Iomega StorCenter NAS products also work with Axis Communications to provide a superior IP video surveillance solution. Iomega is now shipping the first of its StorCenter network attached storage (NAS) models with an integrated AVHS (Axis Video Hosting System) client that enables customers to store video files locally and at HDTV or megapixel resolution while simultaneously streaming video data to a secure off-site storage facility developed by their hosting provider. These solutions are well accepted within our end user customers’ database.”
Iomega® Personal Cloud, included with Iomega® StorCenter™ Cloud Edition network storage products, is a technology that connects Iomega network-enabled devices to other devices—like PC & Mac® computers, iPhone®, iPad®, and more*—via the Internet. Unlike public and private cloud applications, the Personal Cloud is completely self managed, so the content and accessibility is always under your control, and there are never any usage fees or subscription charges.
