Acer signed Globelle as a distributor for its Altos range of servers last week, putting other competitors? noses out of joint. It was expected to sign up-and-coming value added distributor Norwood Adam.
Mark Hatton, managing director of Globelle, confirmed the deal was struck. ?We?ll be selling the 900, 1900 and 19000 series of servers,? he said. ?We?re a networking distributor so now we can offer a truly end-to-end solution.?
Hatton said that Globelle will offer other solutions around the Acer servers and was willing to do that on its Vars? behalf too. ?Networking distributors have historically not sold PCs but it makes sense for us to offer them. As far as I?m aware, we?re the first networking distributor to sell boxes. The response we?ve had from our customers is phenomenal.?
Globelle also distributes IBM networking systems, sells US Robotics' Total Control and also recently signed UB Networks to its flag. He said the fact it distributed Acer kit had nothing to do with its occupation of the former headquarters of the Taiwanese company.
A spokesperson for Acer said its Altos range was the number four server range in the world, with IBM, Compaq and Digital ahead.
