New Zealand's Dbvisit is offering its disaster recovery and replication solutions to Malaysian companies following the appointment of Computrade Technology (Malaysia), CTM, as its value-added distributor.
Danny Chiam, CTM's managing director, said the new distributor partnership means that Malaysian companies will have an extended range of value-added services as CTM can act as system integrator, independent software vendor and reseller as well as offer training and implementation services.
"CIOs and IT decision makers are challenged to always innovate in a reasonable cost," said Chiam. "Through Dbvisit's disaster recovery and replication products, they will able to provide high-performance IT in such an effective and efficient way."
He cited a Vanson Bourne survey of 1,250 respondents in Asia Pacific, which noted that enterprises lost US$343 billion as a result of data loss and downtime per year.
More importantly, the survey revealed that 73 percent of organisations in the region were not fully confident in their ability to recover after a disruption, said Chiam.
With Dbvisit Standby, business continuity was ensured by making a copy of databases at a remote location and keeping it constantly updated. These standby databases can automatically switch to primary database status, making the transition almost seamless.
In addition, Dbvisit Replicate, a logical replication solution, is especially suited to data migrations, report off-loading for performance, feeding department and division applications, and sharing data across the enterprise.
The solution has its own internal redo log-based mining change data capture (CDC) technology to detect changes to replicate and distribute the changed data in real-time.
Value added services
"This agreement is also part of our commitment to present enterprise solutions to our business partners with combined technical, marketing and service expertise that allow them to grab new opportunities in this evolving technology. We also believe that our experience in implementing Oracle solutions will help us open market for Dbvisit," Chiam added.
Dbvisit's sales director international, Mike Stephens said: "Dbvisit is committed to furthering our presence in Malaysia, while supporting our partner channel in the best manner possible. CTM comes from a rich background of value added distribution experiences, creating and managing project-based business."
"Their visions to be a trusted partner to their principals, business partners and end users by providing professional services to guarantee a successful implementation of solutions are in line with our market strategy," said Stephens.
Headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, Dbvisit offers Oracle database replication software and support solutions and current services more than 800 business, academic, and public sector organisations in 80 countries.
