Storage specialist Yves Lecomte of Sofrad Sas to represent NetJapan in France
NetJapan announces a new partnership with French backup and storage specialist Yves Lecomte who brings more than 25 years of channel experience to the table. This agreement is another testament to NetJapan’s rapid European expansion with a focus on building strong relationships with distributors and local industry experts.
Dominik Zingg, General Manager of NetJapan EMEA welcomes the opportunity to work alongside the established thought leader. “Mr. Lecomte has been in the storage business for years and his acumen and insight have earned him the trust of resellers and service providers alike. We are extremely excited that he has chosen to join the NetJapan family and help us bring superior disaster recovery to this key European market,” says Zingg.
In 2007, Mr. Lecomte developed a successful private backup and replication system called IDSbox, later introducing its cloud version IDSCloud. Lecomte sees working with the channel as the best approach to establish NetJapan in France and stresses the importance of forging strong relationships with resellers. “I am really impressed with NetJapan’s comprehensive offering for backup and disaster recovery. Its features and performance are second to none when you are looking for a solution that can cover all your systems, both physical and virtual,” says Lecomte about his motivation for the partnership.
NetJapan sees great potential in the French market, especially for virtualised environments. Naming Veeam as its biggest competitor in this segment, the company is confident that its own ActiveImage Protector for Hyper-V and vmGuardian for VMware will make a great impression on French resellers. Why? “Because we can compete on features as well as price, making the products very attractive to companies of all sizes, from SMBs to large corporations,” explains Zingg.
