Avnet Technology Solutions is adding EMC’s new EMC VSPEX BLUE hyper-converged infrastructure appliance to its channel partner portfolio.

Avnet channel partners can thus design and deploy solutions that offer their SMB, mid-market and enterprise customers cloud and data center services via hyper-converged infrastructure. It will be available in Asia Pacific; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; Latin America and the Caribbean; and North America.

“Hyper-converged appliances are gaining market share and growing exponentially in popularity within the IT community, and this new solution addresses a demand we’ve seen from the mid-market, cloud service providers, and remote and branch offices,” said Greg Peterson, vice president and general manager at Avnet Technology Solutions for the Americas, EMC Solutions group. “EMC has created a unique hyper-converged infrastructure solution tailored to the specific needs of these customers, giving partners a clear opportunity to address this segment with flexible information infrastructures in the right scale.

The EMC VSPEX BLUE appliance features fully automated configuration, single-click seamless scale-out, and zero downtime during patches and updates. As such, the full IT team is not required for deployment, targeting the mid-market, cloud service providers, and remote and branch offices across industries such as the public sector, education, technology and healthcare. Avnet will also help partners integrate  management, security and information infrastructure offerings into VSPEX BLUE solutions to tailor them to the needs of their customers.
