Applied Technologies, a UK IT infrastructure and data centre design specialist, has become a reseller for Korean-based firm, TmaxSoft.
As part of the link-up between the two firms Applied Technologies will join TmaxSoft’s Premier Partner programme.
The latter’s TmaxSoft Tibero database management system is expected to particularly complement Applied Technologies solutions in the enterprise infrastructure management arena, which is used by many financial institutions that rely on large server estates for core banking and processing purposes.
A Covenco Group company, Applied Technologies, has 15 data centre engineers at its disposal with skills in not only IBM storage solutions, but also Dell and HP Intel, Power Systems AIX and i/OS. Windows, VMWare, SAN Storage and Fabric skills are also inherent in its staff.
Founded in 1997 in South Korea, TmaxSoft recently entered the UK market and is seeking to expand quickly via partnership deals.
Commenting on the link-up, James Rickman, Senior IBM Sales specialist at Applied Technologies, said: “We partner with other industry experts in order to deliver combined solutions for virtualisation, systems management, security, system optimisation and resilience. With more and more systems struggling to cope with today’s growing data needs, there is a very real and present need for solutions that address not only performance but efficiency as well.”
“For many organisations, replacing their Oracle database would reduce licensing and maintenance costs. However, many consider the potential development time, staff training requirements, and ultimately change costs, tie them into their Oracle database. This doesn’t need to be the case as we are demonstrating through our partnership with TmaxSoft.”
According to Joe Kim, UK MD of TmaxSoft: “Tibero is an Oracle-compatible database that gives users the freedom of choice to retain their investment in both people and technology, while retaining the same expected levels of performance and familiar interface. The only differences are the more agreeable costs and flexible licensing terms; without the risk and expense associated with changing to any other vendor or open source.”
