Avnet Technology Solutions Introduces Avnet Configured, HP Converged Infrastructure Solutions For Channel Partners In The U.S. And Canada

Industry analyst firm IDC predicts that worldwide converged infrastructure sales will reach $17.8 billion by 2016, representing a 40 percent compound annual growth rate. 1 To help U.S. and Canadian HP solution provider partners capitalize on this market opportunity, Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), unveiled six Avnet configured HP Converged Infrastructure solutions, based on HP VirtualSystem. These new solutions are available exclusively for Avnet’s HP channel partners and are designed to accelerate converged infrastructure initiatives, simplify system management and improve IT performance for end customers.

“Converged infrastructure technology presents a key growth opportunity for our partners to attract new customers and profitably increase sales with their current customers,” said Chris Swahn, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, HP Solutions group. “Avnet has developed solutions that make it easier for our HP partners to bring converged infrastructure solutions to market by giving them tested configurations based on HP technology that they can present to their customers today. These solutions eliminate the need for a lengthy system design process, which will help accelerate customer buying cycles, implementation times and returns on investments.”

These Avnet configured HP Converged Infrastructure solutions combine HP technologies, such as HP BladeSystem and HP ProLiant DL rack mount servers, HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage and HP networking. These solutions provide pre-configured architecture and management models. The solutions include six scalable, ready-to-implement configurations available through Avnet’s HP partner community that are optimized for small, midsize and large virtualization deployments ranging from 96 to 320+ virtual machines.

“Resellers are under increased pressure to more rapidly and efficiently meet customers’ needs even as IT infrastructure complexities are growing,” said Tom Joyce, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Systems at HP. “The Avnet configured HP Converged Infrastructure solutions help channel partners overcome these challenges and quickly deliver value to their customers by reducing implementation times and management complexities, allowing them to focus on innovation instead of operations.”
