Embotics® increases its European distribution footprint with new partners

Prianto and BGS partnerships enable Embotics to target more resellers in the UK and Benelux

London, UK - 5 November 2012 - Embotics Corporation, a pioneer in virtualisation and automated cloud management, today announced that it has signed distribution agreements with Prianto and BGS Netherlands. Through these agreements both companies will now be offering their reseller partners Embotics V-Commander®, a virtualisation and private cloud management product. These resellers will now be able to help their customers realise immediate savings through better management of their virtual estates.

"We are very pleased to have Prianto and BGS Netherlands on board, as both companies have a great track record in developing profitable and sustainable partner channels. We see them as key distribution partners as we expand into the UK and Benelux markets," said Colin Wright, vice president for EMEA at Embotics. "When you add these agreements to the pan-European distribution agreement we signed with Magirus at the start of the year, it is a clear indication of the value that the channel sees in Embotics V-Commander. If resellers are going to achieve additional revenues from virtualisation in the future they need to demonstrate added value to their customers. With Embotics V-Commander, resellers can help organisations to ensure operational efficiency and deliver cost and resource savings in a matter of weeks."

Embotics has signed distribution agreements with both Prianto's UK and Netherlands operations. Prianto was set up to address the market need for specialised distribution focusing on identifying leading-edge technology vendors who can provide resellers with new complementary products that can give them a commercial edge. BGS Netherlands has 25 years' experience in the enterprise hardware and software markets. The company carries a highly-technical range of cloud and virtualisation products and has successfully taken these products to market within the region. These skills and experience made both Prianto and BGS Netherlands ideal distribution partners for Embotics as it makes inroads into Europe.

Embotics V-Commander can be installed and configured in a matter of minutes, providing a 360-degree view of virtual and private cloud environments. Comprehensive self-service functionality enables users to provision VMs themselves and automate the end-to-end workflow process, while offering chargeback and IT cost analysis. This can help resellers identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in their virtual data centres while at the same time dramatically lowering the costs of deploying private clouds.

Rashied Akrum, managing director at Prianto, said: "We are always looking to work with innovative technology companies and Embotics certainly fits the bill. With cloud services threatening to damage their revenues, resellers need to innovate and broaden their product offerings. Embotics V-Commander provides resellers with the tools to position themselves as trusted advisors and at the same time help them to drive greater value from their customers' data centre and virtualisation investments."

"We are very excited to be working with Embotics," said Rob Mooij, CTO at BGS. "Embotics V-Commander complements our existing cloud and virtualisation offerings. We believe that such an easy to deploy product presents resellers with a great business opportunity. We see it as very much a low risk, high reward proposition for many resellers as they look to derive additional revenue from virtualisation and cloud computing."

Sensors and effectors of IoT are solving problems in new ways, but small businesses have been slow to join the quantified world. They’ll need information from IoT using applications as varied as the businesses themselves. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Roger Meike, Distinguished Engineer, Director of Technology Innovation at Intuit, showed how IoT manufacturers can use open standards, public APIs and custom apps to enable the Quantified Small Business. He used a Raspberry Pi to connect sensors...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, will discuss how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved effi...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
