Active Storage Partners With Tech Data to Put World-Class Storage Products Into the Hands of Apple Value Added Resellers


Torrance, CA, June 15, 2010?Active Storage, Inc., the leader in high-
availability storage solutions for media professionals and Apple
Creatives, today announced they have entered into a partnership with
Tech Data Corporation to distribute Active Storage products in the U.S.

Through its Apple Specialized Business Unit (SBU), Tech Data will
enable Apple resellers to add Active Storage?s reliable, Apple-focused
storage solutions to their own solutions offerings. That will mean
more opportunities to get Active Storage products into the hands of
media and creative professionals across the country, a win-win for
both companies.

Last year, Tech Data sold nearly $88 million worth of IT products a
day to more than 125,000 technology resellers in over 100 countries. A
leading Apple distributor, Tech Data?s long-standing complementary
vendor relationships will allow Active Storage Value Added Resellers
to more easily and more rapidly acquire product.

Active Storage CEO Alex Grossman explained the partnership: ?We have
been approached by many companies to distribute our products. We feel
that Tech Data is a great fit, in terms of their size and scope and
focus on quality and reliability.?

?Tech Data knows exactly what it takes to support Apple resellers,?
said Tech Data Vice President, Client Systems Greg Parsonson. ?Each
member of the Apple SBU is a certified Apple Product Professional, and
our product offering includes a broad array of Apple-based solutions.
The addition of Active Storage to our solutions portfolio is a
tremendous opportunity for our reseller customers, especially when
considering the explosive demand for storage only continues to grow.
Our customer can now capitalize on that demand with a storage solution
designed specifically for Apple users.?

Active Storage already boasts a client list that reads like a who?s
who in the broadcast, post-production, Apple creative and education
markets, but this distribution partnership will give the company even
more reach. Active Storage Vice President of World Wide Sales, Seth
Cohen sees value in the relationship: ?Apple, Media, and Value Added
Resellers have long chosen Tech Data as their distributor of choice.
At Active Storage, we believe marrying their incredible reach with our
high-quality products is a recipe for long-term success.?
