IT distributor Avnet Technology Solutions has added PeakColo’s IaaS cloud services to its portfolio.
Avnets first cloud service powered by Peak, and sold through VARs, is called Avnet CloudAttach Shared. It’s based on NetApp Private Storage for Amazon Web Services and lets enterprises consume storage, on an opex basis, because it uses Peaks cloud storage infrastructure. CloudAttach Shared is available on-demand.
VARs also can buy Avnet’s Cloud Accelerator Program Powered by Peak. They can then white-label Peaks infrastructure to offer cloud services based on Open Compute, or Cisco UCS FlexPod compute infrastructure and NetApp storage.
These solutions enable our partners to compete and differentiate themselves on value created for their customers," said Tim FitzGerald, Vice President of Avnet Cloud Solutions, Avnet Services, Americas. "Peaks 100-percent channel-centric model is unique in the marketplace, and we know they will never compete with us via a direct sales force, which was key of our decision to collaborate with them.”
