Linux Warehouse (Pty) Ltd, was established in 2005 and is the premier distributor of enterprise open source software for South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa. As such it is an authorised distributor for MongoDB and other open source products.
Linux Warehouse is a ‘pure’ distributor and operates in conjunction with and through its numerous resellers.
Linux Warehouse grew in sales by more than 50% through our partner network in the last financial year. This growth is built upon end customer demand for Enterprise Open Source solutions, ie, Open Source solutions that are provided by a local partner and backed by a vendor. This end customer interest and demand are leveraged by our partners with the subscription-based model.
The subscription-based model not only assures the end customer of a simple pricing model and a vendor that is focused on mitigating the low-probability high-impact risk of bugs, it also allows our partners to grow their accounts every year. Ie, the subscription-based model provides annuity income to our partners, which you can leverage every year for further growth.
Our partners can also enjoy increased services revenue, since Enterprise Open Source solutions are a fraction of the cost of their proprietary counterparts, which frees up end customer budget.
