Zycko Expandes Global Offices

Zycko has expanded its global offices to Italy, Benelux, Sweden, Spain, USA and German  

Each new office will be taking to market the core of Zycko’s key solutions including Hitachi’s storage, Riverbed’s point to point network acceleration and Isilon’s clustered storage systems, software for digital content and unstructured data.

Harvey Smith, Partner Manager of Hitachi Data Systems, said: “I am pleased to see Zycko’s continued expansion in these territories.  We have worked with them on previous projects and they have always provided a fantastic service.

Marcus Chambers, vice president of EMEA at Riverbed, said: "We have a strong and dedicated commitment to Zycko and their partners.  The expansion of Zycko's operations into Italy and the growth of their operations to the Benelux region allows us to work more closely with new customers and to establish stronger relationships with resellers in these markets."

Philip Crocker, Director of EMEA Marketing, Isilon Systems, said: “Zycko’s expansion is a great move for both Zycko and Isilon.  It will be extremely beneficial for business, as local presence means Zycko can address its local customers, in a local language, with accessible staff.
