Avnet’s Capacity Now Allows Partners to Deliver Private Cloud Benefits to Customers

Capacity Now enables Avnet HP partners to offer dedicated, on-site storage and blade servers to customers, with prices based on capacity utilization.

IT distributor Avnet is now offering a new utility computing product, Capacity Now. Capacity Now enables Avnet’s VARs to offer dedicated, on-site storage and blade servers that are paid for based on how much capacity is utilized (the customers’ infrastructure capacity will be metered daily). Capacity Now will be available to Avnet HP partners in the U.S. and Canada.

This new product allows customers to realize the benefits of private cloud computing, but partners will help customers lower the initial capital costs needed to buy storage and server technology. With CapacityNow set up, storage and servers are delivered as on-site IT resources with a usage-based payment plan, providing an alternative solution for customers looking for the cost-savings and flexibility of cloud computing but also want to reduce the security and reliability concerns that come with hosting resources off-site.

Avnet will provide partners with assessment services to determine the storage and blade server capacity needed to meet their customers’ baseline and anticipated capacity growth requirements. CapacityNow can also include buffer capacity, so as demand increases, customers can scale up immediately.
