Two hands shaking over a desk

Buffalo Technology has signed a distribution deal with storage specialist CMS Distribution in a bid to bolster its presence in the Network Attached Storage (NAS) market.

“The NAS market is continuing to expand, and Buffalo has been proactive in designing market leading, cost-effective NAS devices to meet the bespoke needs of all companies,” comments Paul Hudson, sales director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology.

“As the market continues to grow it will present further opportunities for Buffalo, so working with CMS Distribution will help more businesses benefit from our expanding product portfolio.

“The new partnership will enhance our reputation as a provider of reliable storage solutions within the increasingly competitive NAS market, whilst also helping us boost our sales goals,” he adds.

In the last 12 months Buffalo has added eight new products ranging from the SMB-focused TeraStation 5000 – offering 4TB to 16TB capacity, with anti-virus capabilities, as well as rackmount and disk-free enclosure options – to the Enterprise-level TeraStation 7120r.

CMS maintains a reseller network of more than 2,000 storage partners. Says Nick Preston, commercial director: “Adding Buffalo’s wide range of NAS solutions to our data storage portfolio will create a number of exciting opportunities for our B2B and B2C resellers and strengthen CMS’ position as a leading NAS solutions distributor in UK and Ireland.”

Buffalo also has distirbution agreements with Ingram Micro, Computer 2000 and Micro-P.
