Origin Storage has taken on board Qsan, a global leader in advanced storage solutions. As Qsan’s official UK distributor for its TrioNAS range of products, Origin will bring enterprise-class features to small and medium sized businesses.

Qsan TrioNAS offers a host of advanced technologies to create a unique offering into the SMB market, including ZFS and Deduplication. ZFS is a transactional, copy-on-write, crash-free file system with 128-bit address space and self-healing capability.

Data deduplication is a technique for reducing the amount of storage space an organization needs to save its data. In most organizations, the storage systems contain duplicate copies of many pieces of data. Deduplication eliminates these extra copies by saving just one copy of the data and replacing the other copies with pointers that lead back to the original copy. Deduplication is used in backup and disaster recovery applications, but it can be used to free up space in primary storage as well.

“We selected Origin Storage due to the depth of its expertise in the NAS market, breadth of services capability and its investment in high quality technical resources”, said David Kao, Managing Director, Qsan Technology, Inc. “We were also attracted by the firm’s geographic reach in vertical markets and its evolving storage market and cloud capability”.

 “We’re delighted to be entering into our portfolio QSAN’s award winning products. We see the QSAN range complementing our existing partners as well as a strong individual presence. We’re looking forward to a very successful future together.” Andy Cordial, MD of Origin Storage

Stuart Eling, UK Sales Manager: “We are excited to work with QSAN. Together, we can deliver the QSAN brand and products into the UK and Irish reseller channel. We will be introducing their products and brand name in front a new audience and making the product more accessible than it’s ever been.”

“This partnership will drive growth in new channels and support our partnership with Qsan QCP Partners in UK & Ireland as well as a range of future appliance solutions”, said Kao.
