NEW YORK, Nov. 19 -- Shunra, the world's leading provider of network emulation solutions, has chosen Magirus, an international IT company focusing on IT oriented solutions, supply chain, marketing and financial services, to represent it in Europe and Africa as its exclusive Tier 2 distributor. Through this distribution relationship, Magirus will sell, support and integrate Shunra's Virtual Enterprise (VE) suite of solutions. This strategic alliance serves to expand Shunra's presence in Europe, while it adds value to Magirus' portfolio of technology solutions offered to clients.
"This new relationship with Shunra is beneficial on many levels to Magirus. It is a natural alliance for us, since Shunra's innovative VE solutions complement Magirus' other best-of-breed solutions, as well as our areas of expertise and business focus," said Christophe Negrier, business unit director, Magirus France. "Representing Shunra, Magirus will be able to better meet the complete range of our clients' technology needs, while also expanding our own business opportunities. We are committed to strengthening Shunra's global visibility and reach through this relationship and look forward to working with Shunra as a key business partner."
In addition to offering Shunra's VE solutions for Magirus' clients for network, security, virtualization and storage projects, Magirus will also provide post-sales installation, training and support services.
Shunra VE emulates a global network environment in the pre-deployment lab so that network and QA professionals can test the performance of applications and infrastructure under a wide variety of network impairments, topologies and technologies, as if they were running in a real production environment. Shunra is ideal for projects such as application roll-outs, data center relocations or consolidations, Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization selection, VoIP deployments, and online services deployments. In addition Shunra offers a turn-key solution for all of these projects through its Professional Services consulting team.
"Magirus has the experience and excellent track record that Shunra was looking for in a strategic European partner," said Ben Boulnois, Shunra sales director, Europe and Africa. "This relationship will support Shunra's growth strategy and goals, and will heighten Shunra's brand visibility in a well-established yet still growing market. As a respected technology solutions provider, Magirus brings a lot to the table, and we're expecting to see outstanding results from their representation of Shunra."
