(NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services, announced today that
suite of infrastructure services are available for reseller partners through SYNNEX’
platform. This partnership offers SYNNEX resellers an alternative, cost-effective cloud infrastructure solution for customers that may not be able to invest in hardware refresh, but need to adopt new technologies without being locked into dated hardware.
“SYNNEX resellers now have an alternative to traditional, capital expenditure intensive, on-premise servers with the addition of SoftLayer to the CLOUD
platform,” said Peter Larocque, President, US Distribution for SYNNEX Corporation. “SoftLayer’s platform provides enterprise-grade IT technology for varying budgets and with flexible compute capacity and the ability to count it as an operating expense.”
SoftLayer’s global cloud infrastructure gives resellers advantages and capabilities not found with other cloud services. Softlayer’s pay-as-you-go Cloud Computing Instances are deployed in minutes and can be rapidly scaled to meet workloads with no long-term commitments. SoftLayer’s Managed and Dedicated hosting plans through CLOUD
allow for full customization and automation for higher scalability and control. Servers can be deployed in hours, not days, giving users easy access to on-demand cloud-enabled computing, storage, and content delivery.
“SoftLayer integrates best-in-class connectivity and technology into an agile, automated Internet scale platform, empowering businesses with complete access, control, security, and scalability,” said Drew Jenkins, Director of Channel Sales for SoftLayer Technologies, Inc. “Being quickly provisioned through the CLOUD
platform makes our platform even more accessible to the channel.”
