Tech Data (the former Avnet) signs distie deal with Zadara Storage

15 Mar 2017

Tech Data today announced an agreement with Zadara Storage.

Technology Solutions, once a division of Avnet and now part of Tech Data, will make Zadara Storage solutions easily accessible to channel partners worldwide through its Avnet Cloud Marketplace.

These solutions are centred around enterprise grade storage-as-a-service in any location (cloud, on-premise or hybrid) supporting any data type and connecting to any protocol.

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace enables Technology Solutions partners, including value-added resellers (VARs), independent software vendors (ISVs), managed service providers (MSPs) and system integrators (SIs), easy access to products like the Zadara Storage Cloud.

Technology Solutions partners now have access to the portfolio of Zadara Storage block, file and object storage services.

“As enterprises worldwide continue the transition from purchasing CapEx storage to subscribing to OpEx-based storage services, we are pleased to add Zadara Storage to the Avnet Cloud Marketplace,” says Sergio Farache, senior vice president, strategic business units, Enterprise Solutions, Tech Data.

“Corporate IT customers require flexible, agile storage services that align with their business, and Zadara Storage will enable our resellers to address this growing market demand.”

The market is certainly booming for storage-as-a-service (STaaS) solutions, as research from industry analyst firm IT Brand Pulse reveals the public cloud STaaS market is growing at approximately 25 percent every year, and forecast to capture a whopping 25 percent of enterprise storage spending by 2020.

“We are proud to partner with Technology Solutions and help their partners participate in the dynamic shift from CapEx storage to OpEx storage services,” says Nelson Nahum, CEO and co-founder of Zadara Storage.

“Our Zadara Storage Cloud is the foundation for companies from nearly every vertical market worldwide. Our new relationship with Tech Data will now expand our reach even further, by providing these solutions through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace.”
