VIP Computers will distribute Synology’s range of NAS drives designed specifically for small and medium businesses.
VIP Computers is the UK’s largest independent distributor of components, peripherals and consumer products. The company has been distributing storage for components 20 years, and is now adding Synology’s products to its portfolio.
Founded in 2000, Synology develops high-performance, reliable, versatile, and environmentally-friendly Network Attached Storage (NAS) products.
Following this agreement, VIP will distribute Synology’s products and will begin this with the brand new Synology DiskStation DS712+, a high performance, scalable two-bay NAS server.
“Synology is an exciting company and we look forward to this opportunity to help them increase both their reseller breadth and depth,” said Dave Stevinson, VIP’s sales director.
“The DiskStation DS712+ is a high performance, scalable and virtualization ready NAS server,” said Alex Wang managing director of Synology UK. “We’re delighted to be working with VIP, drawing on their considerable experience in the storage market and giving them the opportunity to bring one of the most powerful business storage solutions at this price point to their SME base.”
