IT solutions distributor, Avnet Technology Solutions, has introduced its next generation of converged infrastructure solutions powered by the 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors – Ivy Bridge. Featuring SAP HANA, Cisco data center technology and storage, these solutions enable companies to store, process, and analyze large data sets in real-time.

“Avnet’s new solutions are ideal for companies looking to manage big data, cloud computing, and mobility in a converged infrastructure,” says Pete Rzonca, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, Cisco Solutions group. “Our new Cisco SAP HANA solutions are fully integrated, tested, validated and certified, and preloaded with the SAP HANA software. Avnet partners can now offer a next-generation SAP HANA solution to their customers with increased processing speeds, helping them to extract more value from their data, which can be used to make better business decisions.”

These solutions combine SAP’s use of in-memory computing and Cisco blade and rack servers with large-memory capacity, networking, and virtualization. Additionally, partners’ customers can select one of two storage options, EMC VNX5400 or NetApp FAS8040, to provide support for up to 16 terabytes (TB) of optimized data. These Avnet-developed solutions boast cost-efficient processing and analysis of large amounts of data in real time, giving customers the ability to gain insight into business operations, respond quickly to changing priorities, and reduce the costs associated with the deployment of multiple data warehouses.

Available exclusively through Avnet’s channel partners, the new converged infrastructure solutions will initially be offered in the U.S. and Canada. For more information, visit
