Gardner Systems PLC becomes AssureStor’s first Platinum reseller expanding their data protection portfolio into the Cloud

Jason Reid general

gardnersystemsGardner Systems was formed in 1985 and from the outset has been an infrastructure specialist. Since that time Gardner’s has gone through many evolutionary and revolutionary changes to continue to be one the leading IT solution providers in the country, delivering reliable and innovative solutions to meet an ever changing client and business demand. Their Wavertree Technology Park base offers facilities without equal in the North-West; these include an IT Centre of Excellence; with the latest technology solutions available for demonstration and testing.

Paul Stringfellow, Technical Director of Gardner Systems said “as the demands on our customer’s IT systems continue to increase, it’s critical for us to ensure we continue to offer the kind of innovative solutions that our customers have demanded from us over the last 28 years. Owners and those responsible for business IT have many pressures on them across many areas, none more so than security and recoverability of critical business data and systems.

Because of this need, it is always a high priority for us to provide the very best solutions in this area both technically and commercially. It is important that we can offer data protection to meet even the most stringent recovery objectives. However as IT continues to evolve, the ability to offer this to our customers as a totally flexible service, allowing OnPremise, Hybrid and Cloud delivery is critical in our decision making process when evaluating new solutions; this allows us to address a wide range of customer needs, from the smallest to the largest of our extensive customer base.

So when we were introduced to the range of services that AssureStor could offer, we were very reassured, as they fully addressed all of our requirements for the kind of service we want to be able to offer to our customers. Because of that we are extremely pleased to join Jason and the team as their first Platinum partner. We fully believe that the addition of their services provides us with the most comprehensive portfolio of data protection solutions, allowing us to address the needs of the business community we serve.”

Jason Reid, Managing Director of AssureStor said “After initial discussions with Gardner Systems it was clear there was a synergy between our two organisations. We are delighted to welcome Gardner Systems on-board as our first Platinum reseller and look forward to working closely with them to develop a comprehensive range of extreme data protection services for their clients.”

Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions fit the Cloud model extremely well, reducing the traditional capital cost and complexities involved in delivering a truly resilient and secure backup/DR solution. Whilst security remains a concern for many when using Cloud technologies, AssureStor addresses this utilising the latest encryption technologies, direct IP communication and state-of-the-art data centres including ‘List X’ certification. This allows our resellers to deliver a robust, industrial strength, data protection service for the complete IT estate.
