Global Distribution FZE, an authorised SolarWinds distributor in the Middle East, recently conducted a reseller partner event at Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.
SolarWinds sales and technical team joined the event from SolarWinds EMEA headquarters in Ireland.
According to the distributor, more than 50 VARs from the UAE and Oman attended the reseller partner event. Attendees had the chance to discuss the latest product updates from SolarWinds systems portfolio, including: the new SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor, SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor, SolarWinds Virtualisation Manager and SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor.
Global said key partners such as Al Rostamani, CAD Emirates, Dmatics, EBM, GBM, InterTec, MDS/PACC, NetLinks and other VARs from Oman graced the event.
“Building a strong partner community for SolarWinds and other solutions vendors is a key objective for Global. It’s always a proud moment for us to have support from our key partners and having them attending and supporting such events and initiatives, especially at such a prestigious location. We are very happy with the positive response we received from partners and vendors alike,” said Avinash Chanchalani, business unit manager, Software, Global Distribution.
“SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor provides IT Pros with the necessary insight into storage resources and their consequent impact on virtual environments to ultimately ensure business critical application performance,” said Peter O’Connor, vice president, Sales, EMEA, SolarWinds. “Partnering with Global Distribution for such events allows us to reach more channel partners across the Middle East and further grow the number of active users in the region.”
“Global’s business development strategy includes enablement, partner events and training, which form an important element. It’s increasingly difficult to get the partner’s commitment to attend events, as there are too many in Dubai. Hence having it at the Burj Al Arab makes it all a little easier,” said Mario M. Veljovic, VP Solutions MENA, Global Distribution.
