Avnet Inc., a global technology distributor, has added packaged solutions powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to its recently launched Avnet Cloud Marketplace, a one-stop shop that offers access to comprehensive solutions from cloud service providers, flexible payment models, and a cloud management toolset.

The Avnet Cloud Marketplace features integrated, packaged solutions powered by AWS, such as backup and disaster recovery solutions that integrate NetApp and Veritas software with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Glacier, and collaboration solutions that single-click deploy AWS resources configured to support a scalable and redundant SharePoint implementation.

“Avnet provides award-winning cloud services, innovative packaged solutions powered by AWS, strategic channel expertise, and technical resources to give partners everything they need to succeed in the cloud,” says Tim FitzGerald, vice president of Avnet’s Cloud Solutions business in the Americas. “Our partners now have access to a broad solutions portfolio powered by one of the industry’s most well-known cloud providers that they can start selling immediately through a marketplace environment, accelerating their time to market and simplifying implementation. These solutions are intentionally focused on the workloads that are in the highest demand among their customers, helping partners gain immediate traction and furthering their roles as trusted advisors.”

In addition to the offerings powered by AWS, the Avnet Cloud Marketplace provides both consumption- and subscription-based model payment options and features branded storefronts that partners can quickly deploy, enabling them sell bundled cloud offerings with their own IP and services.

Partners also have access to Avnet’s management and optimization tools powered by the Avnet Cloud Toolset, providing partners with real-time analytics on cloud use and spending as well as insights into security risks and recommendations on best practice changes to remove potential vulnerabilities in customers’ environments.
