Tech Data Certified As Advanced Technology Distributor For Cisco Unified Computing Solution

CLEARWATER, Fla., July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced its expanded relationship with Cisco in the Data Center space, achieving certification as a Cisco Advanced Technology Distributor for the Cisco Unified Computing System (ATD-UCS).

This new certification empowers Tech Data to register Cisco UCS deals on behalf of non-certified two-tier partners, while they are in the process of becoming certified, using a Cisco-approved exception process, and allows Tech Data to offer and perform on-site installation services for Cisco UCS.

"Tech Data is dedicated to enabling our solution providers to profitably grow their Cisco practices," said Angie Beltz, vice president, Cisco Solutions Group at Tech Data. "As the Cisco Solutions Group at Tech Data continues to focus on new opportunities to expand our Data Center practice, we are capitalizing on market growth through this next level of certification, which provides new opportunities for our channel partners. The ATD-UCS certification is another way that Tech Data simplifies a complex environment, provides a best-in-class knowledge foundation, and offers high technical competence for our Cisco partners."

The new ATD-UCS certification builds on Tech Data's certification as a Cisco UCS B-Series Authorized Configurator (UBAC) achieved in October 2012. This enabled Tech Data to configure, assemble and test pre-built Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers, helping solution providers and value added resellers (VARs) cost-effectively accelerate the delivery of data center solutions. Since earning the build-to-order (BTO) certification, Tech Data's integration business has grown exponentially and has earned numerous customer success stories. 

To earn the Cisco ATD-UCS certification, Tech Data had to deliver $5 million of UCS BTO business through the configuration center with no customer satisfaction issues.

"By achieving the Cisco ATD-UCS certification, Tech Data has demonstrated advanced performance and growth for driving UCS business through the channel," said Julie Hens, Cisco's vice president of U.S. channels distribution. "Tech Data has proven its strength in enablement, configuration, integration and delivery of Cisco UCS solutions, leading to the highest level of certification with the ATD-UCS."
