SVA Software Inc., a newly launched North American channel company based in Fairview, N.C., has introduced its SVA Velocity Partner Program. The aim of the program is to provide revenue opportunities to system integrators and other channel partners who deliver solutions for performance and capacity monitoring and analysis for IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) and the IBM Storwize family, including the V9000, V7000, V5000, and V2700. 

SVA Software’s BVQ (Business Volume Qualicision) storage optimization solution uses proactive monitoring and continually collects data for on-demand and scheduled analysis to keep the environment at peak efficiency. Predictive alerting helps eliminate outages and promote infrastructure stability.

“BVQ is a solution that we recommend to our clients with IBM Spectrum Storage environments,” explains Matt Cleland, director, converged infrastructure and storage solutions at Sirius Computer Solutions, a national solutions integrator. “BVQ gives us the visibility and deep inspection to help our clients properly architect and optimize their virtualized storage.”

To buttress the accelerated adoption of BVQ, the SVA Velocity Partner Program provides partners with new revenue streams, sales and support training, product resources, and marketing support to build a successful BVQ practice. Included in the program is a turnkey offering called the BVQ Health Check that partners can use to analyze a customer’s storage infrastructure. An assessment report outlines the findings, recommendations, and other insights for storage optimization.

Says Don Mead, senior vice president, marketing and partner enablement, SVA Software: “With our new partner program, we are extending [the BVQ] opportunity to IBM Spectrum Storage channel partners so that they can deliver the valuable insights customers need to optimize their virtualized storage environments with confidence and ease.”
