Flash storage vendor Pure Storage has dropped its distributor Abo-Storage to replace it with its competitor TIM, which is already a Pure Storage distributor in Germany. In a few days, both German broadliner Siewert & Kau and Swiss network specialist Studerus have announced plans to expand on the value business. Siewert & Kau has built up a dedicated BU, managed by Thorsten Daniels, while Studerus, which is the historical distributor for ZyXEL in the country, has decided to separate its ZyXEL business in a dedicated structure named ZyXEL Switzerland. This will allow the Studerus structure to focus solely on the value distribution of other brands (ACTi, Mitel, snom and Yealink) (source: IT Business Deutschland, IT-Reseller Schweiz, Inside Channels Schweiz).
