Dell has introduced a zero-percent financing promotion for EqualLogic storage systems, targeting small and medium-sized businesses.
According to Dell, it is the first zero-percent financing offer available to Dell channel partners. The "Zero-Percent EqualLogic" promotion also includes a zero-percent $US1 buyout lease on a 36-month term on all EqualLogic storage equipment.
"The number of devices, data movement and usage makes storage a crucial component of accommodating business growth. However, access to capital remains an obstacle for many small and medium businesses looking to scale their IT infrastructures," said Erik Reichman, vice president and general manager of Dell Financial Services for Small and Medium Business, in a statement.
"With Dell Financial Services, we eliminate a key barrier for customers who can now move forward on long delayed purchases."
Along with helping SMB customers to better manage their IT budgets, Dell said the Zero-Percent EqualLogic promotion is designed to help drive business through Dell channel partners.
The company said it is "committed to being a long-term partner for the channel community" and that the financing program will set a new standard for integration between Dell Financial Services and Dell's PartnerDirect community.
The Zero-Percent EqualLogic promotion is good for all EqualLogic storage components with no minimum purchase amount required. Dell said the promotion will run through August 3, 2012.
Since acquiring EqualLogic in 2007, Dell has made the storage company a crucial part of both its technology and channel sales strategy.
