Avnet Expands Cloud Marketplace to UK, France

Avnet has launched its EMEA Avnet Cloud Marketplace in the UK and France.

The Marketplace offers comprehensive cloud solutions from various suppliers, as well as Avnet’s own cloud services, and a variety of flexible payment models to support channel partners. These include consumption or subscription-based models. Partners can bundle different suppliers’ cloud products and combine them with Avnet’s IT services, to deliver cloud solutions that offer differentiated value-add for their customers.

They also can offer these cloud solutions and services in their own branded cloud storefront, seamlessly becoming the single-source cloud provider and trusted advisor that their customers require. And, the Marketplace has a full set of management tools to monitor cloud consumption and manage and optimize the cloud solutions they purchase.

Michael Fischermanns, vice president of cloud solutions at Avnet Technology Solutions, EMEA, said, “The Avnet Cloud Marketplace is the latest example of how we’re helping our partners capitalize on next-generation technologies as they evolve to ensure their own long-term success in the rapidly changing technology market. We’ve designed the Marketplace based on our expert insights across a range of public, private and hybrid cloud environments, creating a ‘one-stop shop’ for partners to deliver solutions that help organizations make the transition to a cloud-based business model.”

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace is currently available to partners in the UK and France, offering products from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Avnet, Brocade, Cisco, F5, IBM, NetApp, Oracle, SoftLayer and VMware. Rollout to additional countries including Germany, Netherlands and Poland will follow.
