Tech Data Launches TDCloud and TDCloud Academy

The distributor says it’s on a mission to help its VAR partners “profit in the cloud.”

Clearwater, Fla.-based technology distributor Tech Data Corporation has introduced TDCloud and the TDCloud Academy to enable their VAR customers to profit from new cloud-based revenue streams by providing the solutions, services, support, and training they need to be successful. TDCloud is a set of products, services, and enablement tools that help VARs find, develop, and close cloud opportunities, whether they are private, public, or hybrid cloud architectures.

†”We’re on a mission to connect end-customer demand for alternative IT computing and consumption together with the most robust IT vendor solutions that are selling today to ensure our VARs can profit from this transformational shift occurring in our industry – right now,” says Tech Data Senior Vice President of Marketing Joe Quaglia.

TDCloud’s solutions are based on three unique VAR offerings: Cloud Builder, Cloud Provider, and Cloud Reseller.

  • Cloud Builder includes products such as servers, storage, networks, virtualization, and security that help VARs build private clouds for their end-user customers—either on- or off-premises.
  • Cloud Provider caters to VARs that have built or are interested in building their own cloud infrastructure to offer cloud services and computing resources as a hosted solution to their end-user customers.†
  • Cloud Reseller leverages existing public cloud infrastructures and resources available to VARs under white-label branding and packaging that enable VARs to sell cloud solutions without the requirement of costly infrastructure, integration, and implementations.†

Tech Data has aligned with IT vendors to offer solutions and programs that the company says create scalable, secure, and configurable computing infrastructures, regardless of the many types of Cloud offerings its VARs are bringing to their end-customers. These include helping VARs establish their own cloud services with offerings such as on-premise private clouds, or a wide variety of IT vendor public solutions such as software-as-a-service applications like collaboration and security.

Tech Data’s TDCloud Academy is a tiered educational program where resellers can find the resources and training to make cloud a profitable part of their business. TDCloud Academy helps resellers get started and provides the resources to make their cloud business increasingly successful.

To learn more, resellers can access TDCloud at or call their sales team at 800-237-8931.
