Redwood City, California – (The Hosting News) – July 13, 2006 – Managed service provider and systems integrator, FusionStorm, has joined independent storage management software provider, MonoSphere Inc.’s Authorized Partner Program.
MonoSphere Storage Horizon software is used by enterprises as the centerpiece of systematic storage capacity planning processes aimed at drastically reducing CapEx spending for storage infrastructure. Since storage demand has been too difficult to project, administrators have significantly over provisioned storage to avoid shortages, resulting in wasteful average storage usage of 40%. Storage Horizon assists IT organizations to directly target the low utilization problem, to achieve greater value from storage assets, and significantly reduce CapEx spending.
John Varel, CEO of FusionStorm explained, ”FusionStorm combines best-of-breed technology products from leading vendors with a full suite of IT solutions and managed services to help our customers save money and grow their businesses. Storage Horizon will enable us to help our customers achieve greater efficiencies in their current storage infrastructures and ensure future storage purchases are cost-effective. In addition, this will speed the delivery of our newest managed storage and managed application hosting offerings to our clients.”
Ralph Hubregsen, Vice President of Business Development at MonoSphere added, ”With the winning combination of FusionStorm’s service, managed services and support and the award-winning Storage Horizon software, IT management can save on storage CapEx spending while administrators can proactively plan for capacity growth and reduce the high rate of change and disruptions in the storage environment. Creating these types of synergies shows the real value of the MonoSphere Authorized Partner Program.”
