Bell Micro adds to its line card

Company extends relationship with Teneros for its Exchange continuity appliance

Bell Microproducts Inc. a storage distributor based in Markham, Ont., announced it is expanding the relationship with Teneros, Inc., a maker of email continuity solutions.

Bell Micro currently distributes the Teneros Application Continuity Appliances for Microsoft Exchange through its reseller network and will now expand its messaging continuity offering with Teneros’ new disaster recovery software-as-a-service (SaaS) for Exchange.

The addition of Teneros’ new SaaS offering enhances an existing contract manufacturing partnership already in place between the two companies.

“Teneros SaaS provides three key benefits: No capital expenditure; scalability to fit evolving business requirements; and lower costs for messaging infrastructure operations, because no additional IT skills or in-house maintenance are required,” noted Maritza Marie Dubec, director of marketing communications for Teneros.

Utilizing Teneros’ Instant-On failover technology, their new SaaS offering provides around-the-clock email uptime for businesses running Exchange, the company said. Teneros supplies customers with an on-premise, SaaS appliance that requires no reconfiguration, modification, or additional software on the Exchange server or network infrastructure. The SaaS appliances are remotely managed, maintained, and updated from the Teneros Network Operations Center (NOC). The appliances use transactional integrity validation — Teneros’ proprietary, real-time data verification technology — to prevent the replication of Exchange data corruption on Teneros appliances, yielding a high-integrity copy of the email database within the customer’s security perimeter.
