Avnet Technology Solutions, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), today announced it has been selected as a solutions distributor in Latin America and Caribbean for VCE, a leader in converged infrastructure systems. Avnet will now support VCE in Brazil, Central America, the Caribbean, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador and Mexico. As part of this agreement, Avnet will accelerate the sales cycle of the Vblock™ Systems based on its solutions distribution expertise around converged data center environments. Avnet will also support partners in the VCE Partner Program and streamline the VCE engagement and supply process through its close alignment with Cisco, EMC and VMware.

“The changes in the IT market are among the disruptive technologies affecting how customers buy and consume technology. Avnet understands business partners’ needs to be on top and ahead of the changing technology landscape and focus on the right solutions to address their customers’ business challenges with data center environments and cloud-based computing models,” said Sergio Farache, senior vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Latin America and Caribbean. “VCE brings to Avnet the opportunity to broaden our Cisco/EMC/VMware alliance’s product solution distribution, with a specialized and integrated product proposal. Avnet’s knowledge and expertise in converged data center environments will provide our business partners with the support they need to bring Vblock System-based solutions to market rapidly and become more agile and responsive to fulfill their customers’ business needs.”

Avnet will be able to ensure continuity of the supply chain for reseller partners and assist them in achieving the vendor credentials required to become VCE certified.
