Stocks in this article: AVT

Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), today announced that it has become the first Hitachi TrueNorth Partner authorized to integrate Hitachi Unified Compute Platform solutions in the U.S. and Canada. In this capacity, Avnet will serve as an architect and integrator for Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) for VMware vSphere ® with Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS). Avnet’s integration services will help its Hitachi TrueNorth Partners accelerate their time to market by providing complete converged data center solutions.

“Avnet is committed to helping solution providers quickly and profitably bring industry-leading converged data center solutions to their customers,” said Randy Wright, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions Americas for Hitachi Data Systems. “By becoming the only distribution partner providing implementation-ready framework architectures for this solution, Avnet eliminates the complexity that solution providers face in designing and developing solutions from multiple vendors that span the breadth of the data center. Avnet will provide the technical capabilities solution providers need, allowing them to spend more time advising their customers on how technology can overcome enterprise-critical business challenges.”

Authorized to provide these fully-integrated solutions, Avnet now offers Hitachi UCP Select for VMware vSphere with Cisco UCS. These integrated solutions can include Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP), Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS), Hitachi Unified Storage VM (HUS VM), Cisco Unified Fabric network, and Cisco UCS, as either a Cisco Validated Design or certified reference architecture. The compute, network and storage resources featured in these solutions are natively integrated with VMware vSphere, creating a simple, flexible and cost-effective converged solution. Each component is certified for interoperability, giving confidence to solution providers and their customers that the solutions will satisfy today’s requirements and can also scale to meet their business needs in the future.
