Tech Data Launches DataCore Training for IT Professionals in Italy

Enables IT Professionals in Italy to Undertake DataCore Training on Software-Defined Storage and Data Infrastructure Software

Barcelona, Spain, 3 October 2017:

Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq: TECD), today announced that it is authorised to provide DataCore training to IT professionals in Italy through its Academy training division.

DataCore has pioneered software-based storage virtualization and is a leader in the hybrid-converged software that is used to power and manage new and existing Storage Area Networks (SANs) and the world's fastest hyper-converged and cloud-based storage solutions. DataCore training is already available to Tech Data’s resellers through the Academy division in Germany, France and Spain, delivering training to IT professionals on how to achieve ultra-fast application performance.

Stephen Ennis, director, Academy, Europe at Tech Data said “Our role is to help guide IT professionals on their journey to obtain the technical skills and certifications they need to manage large, complex IT environments. A lack of skills in this area can lead to technical issues and unplanned downtime or a loss of data. Having the skills and recognised certifications is the best way for an IT professional to demonstrate that they have the competency to use products correctly and optimally.”

Pascal Le Cunff, director, Southern Europe at DataCore added, “Students are taught how to install, manage and configure DataCore solutions with existing IT assets and manage multi-vendor platforms. These solutions are being used at over ten thousand customer sites to improve the performance of many business critical applications, including Microsoft, SAP Hana, OpenStack, SQL Server, VMware, Linux and Oracle. The investment by Tech Data in its Academy training division will bring positive benefits to the IT industry in Italy and to its customers.”
