Dicker Data and NextDC partner up, target SMB channel

02 Apr 15

Dicker Data has entered into a strategic partnership with NextDC in order to provide affordable data centre solutions to partners selling cloud solutions, primarily SMB resellers.

In a statement, Dicker Data says the partnership unlocks space in NextDC’s UTI Tier III-certified data centres at an affordable price and provides a way for partners to enter into cloud and colocation services.

David Dicker, Dicker Data chairman and CEO, says, “Our new partnership with NextDC is the next step in the cloud solution sell for us.

“We currently hold a strong share of the server market and we’re now able to give our partners a place to put that kit on a consumption basis.”

Craig Scroggie, NextDC CEO, says, “Our new business relationship with Dicker Data creates a unique opportunity for organisations to combine Dicker Data’s specialist IT technology expertise with NextDC’s next-generation Data-Centre-as-a-Service in the one high-reliability, customised deployment.”

“Dicker Data’s commitment to simplify and drive data centre solutions for the SMB channel is well matched by NextDC’s own products and services.

“Together, we will enable the Australian channel by offering the ideal package for anyone considering a move to public or private cloud computing solutions colocated with their own infrastructure,” Scroggie says.

Partners are able to purchase solutions from quarter racks up to multiple full racks.

Dicker Data is offering these solutions to its partners effective immediately.
