Fisk is tasked with expanding Quorum’s channel programme throughout the region and is currently in talks with a major distributor for its onQ hybrid cloud solution. The platform was originally developed for US navy warships to ensure that on-ship computers never ‘go down’ during combat. The highly robust technology is today designed for midmarket organisations that need reliable disaster recovery as much as large enterprises, but without the complexity or high costs associated with traditional data centre replication.
Fisk said: “Many organisations today need a highly available disaster recovery solution but without the traditional price tag or complications – Quorum is plugging a gap in the market with its simple to manage and cost effective platform. It’s an exciting time to join the company and we are recruiting a select group of quality channel partners to bring the product to the UK market for the first time. We operate 100 per cent through the channel so it’s very important for us to develop strong working relationships with our partners and help them achieve strategic goals with us.”
