dpi Named Only Reseller of Breakthrough XRAID Hardware for Apple Platforms Being Introduced by Active Storage
DPI, Clayton, MO Apple Reseller, Plays Key Role in Active Storage Launch as Only Platinum-Level Reseller
CLAYTON, MO (Oct. 20, 2008) – dpi, the leading Apple reseller for businesses across the U.S., announced today it is now the only reseller of Active Storage XRAID hardware, the high-speed storage solutions for Apple platforms. The announcement was made in coordination with Active Storage’s debut of its storage products, the first non-Apple storage solutions that meet the demands of data-heavy Apple equipment users.
“We are very excited to be on the ground floor of the Active Storage product rollout,” said Matina Koester, president of the dpi. “It is obviously a testimony to our commitment to our customers that Active Storage has given us first-day access to the products and made us its only platinum-level reseller.”
Active Storage was founded by Alex Grossman, the former senior director of hardware server and storage at Apple and the company’s employees include the team that drove development of the Apple Xserve RAID products. It is introducing the Active Storage XRAID, a powerful and compact high-availability RAID system delivering up to 16TB (terabytes) of storage in stylish chassis occupying only three units (3U) of rack space.
The Active Storage XRAID offers another industry first – the systems feature simplified setup and management using a suite of native Mac OS X-based utilities, and are usable out of the box for even the most complex Apple Xsan or multi-server installations.
“These products work with Apple systems right out of the box,” Koester said. “Unlike other products available for Macs, they are not just reworked Windows RAID systems. They have been designed from the group up by the most experienced Apple storage team in the business.”
As Active Storage’s only platinum reseller, dpi will provide the kind of support for the products its customers have come to expect on everything it sells.
Active Storage XRAID can be ordered from dpi immediately through its website at www.dpipro.com, by phone at (314) 863-8008 and toll-free at (866) 679-6227; and through email.
Founded in 1994, dpi is the leading reseller of products to the growing market of enterprise users of Apple equipment. The company provides exceptional sales and state-of-the-art service to its customers who have rewarded its dedication to their needs with a loyalty beyond the typical business relationship.
