Fibrenetix and Polar Graphics Start the New Year by Signing UK & Ireland Partner and Distribution Agreement

Bristol, UK (PRWEB) January 14, 2009

Fibrenetix Storage Ltd has signed up Polar Graphics as its new Distributor for the United Kingdom & Ireland. Polar Graphics will distribute the full range of Fibrenetix products to the professional content creation industry; from the small workstation RAID to the high performance PCIe based PIXi products and the highly scalable SAS/SATA to Fibre E-Series range.

Jes Nagel, CEO Fibrenetix says; "We are very excited about the distribution and partnership agreement with Polar Graphics. We had been looking at a number of companies in the UK to try to find the right partner for our products but found the combination of high level storage knowledge with an understanding of content creation workflow very limited. Fortunately for us, Polar Graphics have established themselves over the years, based on these principles."

Fibrenetix is one of the few storage companies that truly specialize in storage for the content creation industry. All Fibrenetix products are tested and certified with all major capture cards, but more importantly, all products are tested streaming with real media. Fibrenetix currently holds a library of more than 8TB of media from SD, Apple Pro-Res, HD, 2K and even 4K, in both uncompressed and compressed formats.

Mr Nagel continues; "This partnership goes beyond the normal STOCK and SELL distribution agreement. The knowledge and skills that Polar Graphics have to offer will enable us to test and certify our products with an even greater variety of capture cards and application environments. We also plan to develop and streamline new compatibility tests with Polar Graphics, offering end users a performance and compatibility guarantee which will be second to none in the industry."

Garry Davis, Technical Director at Polar Graphics says; "We always test the products we distribute to ensure they do what they say on the tin. Fibrenetix build quality is very good, performance is very good, and the drive cooling is the best I have seen, which is crucial for reliability. Also, the support team based in Europe is very responsive."

He continues; "Fibrenetix have a wide range of PCIe, U320 SCSI and Fibre Channel products which combine good design and feature sets. There are a variety of management/configuration interfaces, redundant designs and onsite warranty options to ensure high availability of your data. Plus the modular design allows ease of maintenance and an upgrade path. With all these features you'd expect the products to be expensive, but this is not the case, they are extremely cost effective."
