Hitachi Data Systems Partners with Skye Consult

Hitachi Data Systems has today announced that it will partner with specialist IT reseller, Skye Consult, to provide data storage solutions to Skye Consult’s customer base.

Skye Consult, part of the Skye Group which includes Skye IT and Skye Recruitment, is one of the fastest growing IT resellers in the UK, working with major manufacturers and vendors to provide best-of-breed storage, telecoms, security and office IT solutions.

Skye IT, traditionally a hardware/software supplier, has seen a high demand for more consultative services over the past two years which led them to launch Skye Consult, now trusted advisors to its customer base.

Sam Mager, Sales Director for Skye IT and Skye Consult, said: “Customers are increasingly asking for advice on how best to manage their infrastructures, and as storage plays a fundamental part of this, we need to be partnering with the best provider in the market.

“Hitachi Data Systems is well-known within the industry for showing a unique insight into the needs of its partners and providing a great deal of pre-sales and technical support, not to mention on-the-ground teams for customer deployments. We are thrilled about this partnership, as we feel it will be very beneficial for both our organisations.”

Steve Murphy, MD of Hitachi Data Systems UK, commented: “Skye has grown phenomenally in its market over the past two years which has really impressed us. We expect that its strong pipeline of customers and broad portfolio of services will help to cement a long and prosperous partnership with us.
