First Distribution Signs Africa Distribution Agreement with Oracle

Distributor to expand its Oracle distribution into Africa

First Distribution, South Africa's leading distributor for datacentre, enterprise and cloud solutions and a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, has announced that it has been appointed as a value added distributor for Oracle into Africa, extending its current distribution agreement for South Africa into the rest of Africa.

Oracle is a global leader in the IT industry and provides enterprise solution to all sectors of the market. With more than 420 000 customers and deployments in more than 145 countries, Oracle offers a comprehensive and fully integrated solution stack of technologies raging from Storage, Servers, OS, Virtualisation, Database, Middleware, Applications, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Cloud Applications.

For more than three and a half decades, Oracle has been the leader in database software. And as it has further developed technologies and acquired best-in-class companies over the years, that leadership has expanded to the entire technology stack, from servers and storage, to database and middleware, through applications and into the cloud.

First Distribution became a value added distributor for Oracle in 2009, and has successfully grown the business in the years since. This success has enabled First Distribution to successfully sell Oracle's products into the Sub-Saharan African region, covering East Africa, West Africa, Central Africa and the SADC.

First Distribution Business Unit Manager for Oracle, David Kruger, stated that; "First Distribution is very pleased to distribute Oracle products to the Africa region. With Oracle's extensive enterprise portfolio and vision of cloud computing, there is a bright future ahead of us. First Distribution is well-positioned to meet the needs of our partners, as well as to work with Oracle in successfully executing its growth and development plans across this region."
