Maxava and WSS Italia Reaffirm Italian Market Partnership


Strategic Partnership reaffirms commitment to deliver premium Disaster Recovery Services for IBM i to the Italian marketplace.

Milano, Italy and Philadelphia, PA (January 18, 2017) – Maxava, a global provider of innovative high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR) and monitoring solutions reaffirms its partnership with Worldwide Software Solution Italy, also referred to as WSS Italia, after 13 years. WSS Italia provides innovative software solutions with the aim of meeting the customer needs with accuracy, reliability, and competence.

Maxava and its partner WSS Italia celebrated 13 years of collaboration in September last year. The long history between Maxava and WSS has resulted in the successful introduction of enterprise-class disaster recovery services to the Italian marketplace. Since the partnership was formed, customers such as Cassa Dis Compensazione E Garanzie S.P.A (CC&G, part of the London Stock Exchange Group) has noted that “WSS Italia’s attention to detail, follow-through, and quality of support ensured that the process of selecting and then moving to Maxava HA went smoothly and met all of our internal criteria.” They continued on to say, “When the Italian stock market relies on your business, it’s good to know that you have the best IT systems, technology and services available from partners such as IBM, WSS and Maxava.”

“We are extremely happy with the way our relationship has developed over the last 13 years, and are looking forward to the innovations that we can deliver together in the future,” says John Dominic, Executive Vice President of Maxava. Maxava supports a global client base via a network of strategic alliances and partnerships such as the one with WSS Italia, utilizing their local expertise and reputation.

The Italian market is very receptive to the efficiencies and automation protocols that Maxava built into their products. Gone are the days where companies throw more and more administrators at the maintenance of a software solution. Utilities, whether HA, DR, or Monitoring, need to be simple to manage on a day-to-day basis, rather than to require dedicated administrators to maintain them. Simplicity and organization is king.
