Lifeboat to Distribute Datadobi Software

Lifeboat Distribution, a subsidiary of Wayside Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTG) and international value-added distributor for disruptive and emerging technologies, announced today a distribution agreement with Datadobi, a data management company that offers enterprise-class software for migrating and protecting unstructured data anywhere.

Lifeboat will sell Datadobi’s products included in their DobiMiner Suite, including DobiMigrate. Partners will be able to enlist the powerful functionality of DobiMigrate software to ease their customers’ technology transitions from any legacy platform to next-generation storage by providing the best unstructured data migration solution in terms of integrity, performance, functionality and reliability.

“With unstructured data increasing, it is important to have a product like Datadobi’s, which allows you to effectively migrate your existing environment to better manage costs and complexity of growing data” said Dale Foster, Executive Vice President, Lifeboat Distribution. “Anything that enables our partners to make money or save money is key to our services portfolio, where we can provide the tools like DobiMigrate for them to do it, or for us to use the tools and deliver the end to end outcomes required.”

“Migration is a key part of almost every storage refresh, whether it be on-premises or to the cloud. Traditionally, data migration has been time-consuming, complex and risky, and as a consequence, not something that was offered by the majority of partners,” added Ian Leysen, CEO and Co-Founder, Datadobi. “Lifeboat Distribution can now enable all of their partners to include migration as part of every storage opportunity. With DobiMigrate, new systems will be deployed rapidly, and customers will quickly realize the TCO improvements offered by storage vendors—most of which assume an early decommissioning of existing equipment.”
