Avnet Introduces Next-Generation Cloud Marketplace

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace provides a comprehensive platform that spans the entire cloud ecosystem, offering a way to easily buy, bill, and manage cloud services.

Global technology distributor Avnet Inc. has introduced the Avnet Cloud Marketplace, a one-stop shop that offers comprehensive solutions from cloud service providers, flexible payment models, and a cloud management toolset. The Avnet Cloud Marketplace provides the ability for partners in the U.S. and Canada to offer cloud-based services to their customers through both consumption- and subscription-based models and create branded storefronts to offer complete solutions to their customers.

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace is the latest evolution in the company’s in-house cloud capabilities. It was designed based on insights gained through its role in deploying more than 900,000 workloads in the cloud in the past two years across a range of public, private, and hybrid cloud environments.

As a result, the marketplace features functionality for all levels of the cloud ecosystem, including VARs, ISVs, MSPs, systems integrators (SI), technology manufacturers, and end users. It provides the ability to architect and manage cloud solutions, while still enabling fast deployment by maintaining a connection to cloud providers for real-time provisioning and billing.

“Services-based delivery is rapidly impacting the way businesses consume technology, and channel partners must be able to develop and implement cloud strategies with ease to ensure their long-term viability,” says Tim FitzGerald, vice president of Avnet’s cloud solutions business in the Americas. “We developed the Avnet Cloud Marketplace to take our channel partners to new heights in the cloud computing market. They now have access to a single resource to easily offer their customers a selection of industry-leading services and providers, the ability to incorporate them into existing infrastructure, and seamless management and optimization of multiple cloud services for maximum efficiency. These capabilities, coupled with the ability to create branded storefronts, perfectly positions our partners to meet their customers’ needs.”

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace expands beyond allowing partners and their customers to buy, bill, and order cloud services. It also includes a full set of tools powered by the Avnet Cloud Toolset, designed to help partners and their customers manage and optimize the cloud services purchased. As a part of this, the marketplace offers dashboards that give partners and their customers access to real-time, full-detail cloud usage with drilldown capabilities to better understand what services are being consumed by whom and where they are being consumed. It also has analytics capabilities to assess cloud spending and provide recommendations on changes the customer can make to save money, analysis on security risks, and recommendations on best practices.

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace represents a range of cloud and technology provider solutions that can be combined and managed together. It features infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), as well as software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings.

Additionally, the Avnet Cloud Marketplace provides access to integrated cloud packages developed by Avnet that combine technologies that are designed, deployed, and billed together with cloud infrastructure in a unified solution. These packages are designed around the workloads that are in the highest demand among customers.
