Avnet Technology Solutions Selected As New Converged Infrastructure Distributor For Nutanix In The U.S. And Canada

Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Nutanix, the web-scale converged infrastructure company. Under this agreement, Avnet will provide its channel partners in the U.S. and Canada with the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, which partners can use to design and develop converged compute and storage infrastructure for virtualized data centers.

“We’re bringing the same design principles and technologies that power some of the world’s largest, most innovative data centers to the channel through our new distribution agreement with Nutanix,” said Scott Look, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, Connected and Secured Solutions group. “With our expertise in converged and data center solutions, Avnet has the deep technical and market knowledge needed to efficiently bring Nutanix’s innovative Virtual Computing Platform to market. With Avnet’s supporting resources, partners can use Nutanix’s technology and web-scale infrastructure to solve their customers’ business challenges related to data center virtualization, disaster recovery, desktop virtualization, and testing and development.”

Avnet serves as a single-source distributor for building and deploying cost-effective data center solutions using technologies from leading brands, such as VMware ®. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform will complement this portfolio by offering partners a converged infrastructure option that consolidates the server and storage tiers into a single, integrated appliance. With this platform, Avnet’s partners can now offer their enterprise and government agency customers solutions based on a web-scale architecture, an approach to designing, building and managing data center infrastructure pioneered by web companies and cloud providers such as Google, Amazon and Facebook. End customers will be able to quickly deploy and scale data center infrastructure, reduce the cost and complexity of storage, and integrate the Nutanix platform with legacy components to maximize existing IT investments.

“Avnet is a market leader in converged infrastructure solutions, and they have proven expertise in bringing complex data center solutions to life,” said Steve Kaplan, vice president of channel and strategic sales, Nutanix. “By leveraging Avnet’s global reach and expertise, Nutanix will be capable of providing the resources our channel partners need to rapidly grow sales and increase the speed at which they operate. Avnet and Nutanix will work together to accelerate the adoption of web-scale infrastructure, creating solutions that exceed IT expectations and are scalable, agile, affordable, and uncompromisingly simple.”
