Bull and GlassHouse join forces to deliver storage assessment services
Bull, the expert in open, flexible and secure information systems and one of Europe’s leading players in the IT industry, and GlassHouse Technologies, a leading independent IT infrastructure consulting and services firm, announced their strategic agreement to jointly deliver storage consulting services throughout Europe. Under the terms of the agreement, Bull will use GlassHouse methodologies and tools within a new consulting practice in Bull’s StoreWay business unit.
The new storage assessment services will help organisations identify and quantify potential storage economies and the benefits of new storage optimisation technologies. Combining storage expertise, methodology and tools, these services aim to provide pragmatic advice and rapidly measurable benefit through short and focused service engagements.
Bull and GlassHouse will jointly deliver assessments through Bull’s existing sales and services organisations and will complement the extensive storage service offering that Bull already has in place providing design, implementation and support services. The initial assessment service offer will address major storage challenges currently faced by IT organisations including the optimisation of data backup infrastructures, data classification and tiered storage, and data deduplication and provisioning.
