Vertex Acquires NextIO Solution, Advances Service Portfolio for IT Clients in Hong Kong, Macau

Vertex has been providing IT services to clients in government, education and a number of commercial-based industries for over 10 years. Recently, however, the firm began fortifying their solutions to work on a more infrastructural level for businesses with similar values to IT problem solving. NextIO has joined them to make it happen.

NextIO, a landmark in input/output (I/O) consolidation and virtualization services, has allowed Vertex to resell NextIO’s vNET I/O Maestro devices in Hong Kong and Macau, making it easier for Vertex’s clients to take up more comprehensive projects in their IT departments. The company unifies networks and storage spaces in an organization’s data centers, reducing CapEx and allowing the business to focus on the things more critical to its relationship with customers.

"With its ability to simplify our customers' data center operations and save them money, vNET I/O Maestro is a tremendous addition to our product portfolio," said Edwin Lee of Vertex. "By virtualizing server I/O at the top of the rack, this product from NextIO will help our customers manage their complex IT environments more effectively."

NextIO’s vNET I/O Maestro is a rack-level appliance that streamlines IT systems’ operations so their I/O resources accomplish tasks more efficiently and in a manner that’s easier to understand by its staff.

“Working with a technically experienced company like Vertex gives NextIO an opportunity to gain significant traction in Hong Kong and Macau," said Mike Heumann, SVP of worldwide sales and marketing at NextIO. "vNET Maestro continues its momentum throughout the world, and we're proud to be partnering with leading player in these key Asian markets."

Vertex was founded in 1996 and contains two business units, one of which – Vertex Systems Limited – handles IT product distribution. The new NextIO suite, including industry-class PCIe switch technology, allows it to work more closely with other IT solution providers in a variety of initiatives.
