Renée Bergeron, Ingram Micro’s vice president of global cloud, said the company is committed to improving its partners’ success.

“We’re pleased to enhance our offerings and deliver an industry-ranked cloud platform that can achieve true hyperscale computing capability and allow our channel partners to expand on their services with less investment,” she said.
