Global cloud-led, data-centric software company NetApp today announced that Frontier Business Systems has been signed as the first Keystone Partner in India. With this partnership, Frontier Business Systems will now be able to provide its customers with the best of NetApp solutions, along with added benefits that NetApp Keystone offers.
At the core of the partnership is NetApp’s tailored solutions that offer better manageability, flexibility, and scalability – all at optimised costs. Escalating infrastructure expenses are one of the major concerns for all businesses today. Frontier Business Systems can now sell cloud storage solutions through Keystone Flexible subscriptions via operational expenditures (OpEx) models. As a Keystone partner, Frontier Business Systems will now pass on the benefits of the Keystone Flex Subscription to customers who are keen to move to the cloud and are looking for alternatives to capital expenditures (CapEx) for their storage infrastructure. With NetApp Keystone, customers can also enjoy both variable capacity growth and scalability.
Commenting on the partnership, Puneet Gupta, vice president & managing director, NetApp India & SAARC said, “We are elated to partner with Frontier Business Systems yet again to extend NetApp Keystone offerings. The partnership will help us reinvent customer experience and deliver the innovation needed to thrive in a hybrid multi-cloud world.”
“With NetApp Keystone, we will now be able to pass on greater benefits than ever before and we congratulate Frontier on being our first partner to help customers transition to the cloud in a smooth manner,” added Gupta.
“Our association with Frontier has been a long standing one and with the new Keystone partnership it is yet another milestone. With partners like Frontier by our side, we help each other continuously innovate in our journey towards customer success,” said Ganesan Arumugam, director, Channel Sales, NetApp India.
