Avnet accelerates cloud services ahead of May Toolset launch
Avnet Technology Solutions says it’s accelerating its cloud services vision with the appointment of Chris Farrow as business manager for Cloud Services across Australia and New Zealand.
Farrow is responsible for driving Avnet’s Cloud Services division, focusing on evolving and strengthening the company’s cloud offerings for partners.
Darren Adams, Avnet Technology Solutions Australia and New Zealand vice president and general manager, says Farrow will ‘further build on Avnet’s ability to transform partners’ business performance utilising our world-class portfolio of integrated cloud and managed services solutions’.
The IT solutions distributor says since joining Avnet in January, Farrow has implemented a number of strategies to strengthen and expand on Avnet’s existing cloud offerings, and been the driving force for the launch of the Avnet Cloud Toolset.
The Avnet Cloud Toolset enables managed service provider and value-added reseller partners to govern, consolidate, manage and track resource consumption across multiple cloud providers.
A number of Avnet partners have signed up for the Toolset in its initial stages, with a full rollout planned for May.
Farrow has worked in IT for more than 30 years, including as national business development manager, cloud, at Data#3 and with several cloud start-ups.
