Ecrix Corporation, a data storage company and manufacturer of VXA tape products, today announced it will be a supplier for the Intel(R) Business Advantage Portal. The company says this B2B e-marketplace provides Ecrix Corporation efficient access to approximately 10,000 Intel Product Dealers in North America.
“We are very excited to work with Intel. This will bring our tape storage solutions to the growing number of Intel Product Dealers,” stated Bill Almon, Jr., vice president of sales and marketing for Ecrix Corporation. “The VXA-1 tape drive gives Intel’s Product Dealers a strong price-performance advantage as well as the flexibility of multiple interfaces, including IDE/ATAPI and SCSI, for today’s mixed computing environments. VXA-1 also offers a strong future roadmap unlike DDS/DAT tape drives, which are at the end of their lifecycle.”
The Intel Business Advantage Portal offers discounts on components and solutions such as software, hardware, peripherals, Internet access, and e-Commerce services, and displays suppliers’ offers in an e-marketplace. By participating, Intel Product Dealers are able to receive rebates and commissions on the e-Business suppliers’ services and product offerings they sell to their customers.
