The Reseller Business Opportunity
Customers have huge storage needs
– iSCSI & SATA/SAS gaining momentum with SMB market
Take revenue from the incumbents
– Storage industry evolution is similar to volume servers
– The industry is evolving to modular, networked, open
standards-based storage platforms
A differentiated solution with higher margins
Customers that grow in value
–

–
2
Establish footprint that generates low effort repeat business
25% of customers repeat purchase within 4 months
Repeat purchase typically larger than initial purchase
35% revenues can be from repeat buyers

Opportunities for Selling
y If your customer…
• Has no backup solution (RAID is not a back up solution)
• Wants storage consolidation: customer has a storage
solution, but it is fragmented and difficult to manage
• has lots of data to store, and his storage needs are
growing exponentially
• is concerned about business continuity (if he isn’t, ask him
what his plans are)
y If you are…
• Interested in selling services
Any time you sell a server or workstation, ask for
the storage sale!
