Vision Solutions, a leading provider of information availability software and services, today announced a new partnership with Prodata, a value-added distributor specialising in availability software for Windows and Linux operating systems. The partnership covers South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique.

Wouter Vancoppenolle, Sales Director Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa for Vision Solutions, said, “Following on from strong levels of sales growth during 2010 in South Africa, Vision Solutions decided to expand our presence and reach in this country and the surrounding area among local companies, and help them to protect their servers and data. We trust this partnership with Prodata will bring us new business opportunities for the large range of products that Vision Solutions offers.”

Vision Solutions provides unique, proven and affordable high availability and centralised backup solutions for protecting data, systems and applications across physical and virtualised server environments.

Jay Bradley, MD, Prodata said, “This partnership is a mutually beneficial opportunity as there is a pent-up demand across the region for products that can help organisations deal with their business continuity and high availability issues at an affordable price.”

As a specialised distributor, Prodata supports Vision Solutions’ products for Windows and Linux platforms, including Double-Take Availability, Double-Take Move and Double-Take RecoverNow.
