HP Simply StoreIT resellers can expect to see additional resources in the program to reflect enhancements made to the vendor’s MSA storage system that were announced today.
The company added data tiering, thin provisioning and other storage capabilities to the entry-level HP MSA storage system, aimed at improving efficiency and productivity for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
HP launched the Simply StoreIT program, a program aimed at helping SMBs choose among storage products, 18 months ago. The program also includes tools, resources and incentives to help HP reseller partners improve sales opportunities with SMB customers. Today’s enhancements to the program include new tools that target the enhanced MSA, such as quote and configuration templates, co-branded lead generation materials, training resources designed to help partners improve sales and time to revenue, and a new Quick Start guide, according to the vendor.
The new MSA 1040/2040 firmware is scheduled for general availability next month.
The HP Simply StoreIT reseller program is part of HP’s Just RightIT program of products and solutions, including servers, storage, networking and services, for SMBs.
