Avnet Technology Solutions Selected as New Converged Infrastructure Distributor for Nutanix

Under the distribution agreement, Avnet will provide its channel partners with the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, allowing partners to design and develop converged compute and storage infrastructure for virtualized data centers.

Avnet Technology Solutions has signed a distribution agreement with web-scale converged infrastructure company, Nutanix. Under this agreement, Avnet will provide its channel partners in the U.S. and Canada with the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, which partners can use to design and develop converged compute and storage infrastructure for virtualized data centers.

“With our expertise in converged and data center solutions, Avnet has the deep technical and market knowledge needed to efficiently bring Nutanix’s innovative Virtual Computing Platform to market. With Avnet’s supporting resources, partners can use Nutanix’s technology and web-scale infrastructure to solve their customers’ business challenges related to data center virtualization, disaster recovery, desktop virtualization, and testing and development,” says Scott Look, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, Connected and Secured Solutions group.

Avnet serves as a single-source distributor for building and deploying cost-effective data center solutions using technologies from leading brands, such as VMware. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform will complement this portfolio by offering partners a converged infrastructure option that consolidates the server and storage tiers into a single, integrated appliance. With this platform, Avnet’s partners can offer their enterprise and government agency customers solutions based on a web-scale architecture,an approach to designing, building, and managing data center infrastructure pioneered by web companies and cloud providers such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook. End customers will be able to deploy and scale data center infrastructure, reduce the cost and complexity of storage, and integrate the Nutanix platform with legacy components to maximize existing IT investments, states Avnet.

Partners can also use the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform to deploy cloud computing capabilities for their customers. These partners will have access to Avnet CloudReady, the company’s approach to helping the channel community move their customers’ businesses to the cloud, as well as the knowledge base of the Avnet Cloud Solutions and Avnet Services teams.

Additionally, Avnet can help partners to design, integrate, and assemble computing appliances based on the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform through its converged infrastructure team at the Avnet Global Solutions Center in Chandler, Ariz.
