Avnet Technology Solutions To Distribute Enterprise-Class Infrastructure As A Service Cloud Solutions From PeakColo In The U.S.

Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution leader and operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), today announced a distribution agreement with PeakColo to increase the availability of Peak’s cloud services platform via channel partners in the U.S. Peak is a leading enterprise-class infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud service provider that is 100 percent dedicated to serving channel partners, and Avnet will be developing integrated and packaged off-premise cloud solutions for its channel partners powered by Peak. These solutions will address the IT infrastructure challenges of channel partners’ customers related to production workloads, business continuity, disaster recovery, storage and networking.

Avnet also unveiled its first Peak-powered cloud solution today based on NetApp ® Private Storage for Amazon Web Services (AWS). This offering combines the performance and control of NetApp enterprise storage with the efficiency and elasticity of AWS. Enterprises can access the solution exclusively through Avnet’s channel community, with the ability to consume NetApp storage in an OPEX model that does not require ownership and offers as short as a 12 month commitment.

“Avnet’s channel community helps enterprises implement and manage cloud-based technology environments,” said Tim FitzGerald, vice president of Avnet Cloud Solutions, Avnet Services, Americas. “Our partners are supporting their clients in making the transition to the cloud easier and more cost effective for enterprises, and PeakColo understands the vital role the channel plays in making cloud computing more intuitive for companies. Together, Avnet and Peak will empower channel partners with the technology and resources they need to implement the end-to-end cloud solutions for their customers’ unique business needs.”

Additionally, channel partners can white label Peak’s Cloud through Avnet’s Cloud Accelerator Program Powered by Peak. This program enables Avnet partners to offer cloud services by integrating Peak’s enterprise-class cloud services platform, featuring Open Compute or Cisco FlexPod-based infrastructure and NetApp storage, into their existing managed services portfolio to meet the specific needs of their customers.
