Avnet releases next generation converged infrastructure solutions

Avnet releases next generation converged infrastructure solutions 

Avnet’s new solutions feature SAP HANA, Cisco’s data centre technology and advanced storage. They will allow businesses to store, process and analyze large data sets in real time. These solutions will be available exclusively through Avnet’s channel partners in the U.S. and Canada.

“Avnet’s new solutions are ideal for companies looking to manage big data, cloud computing and mobility in a converged infrastructure,” said Pete Rzonca, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, Cisco Solutions group, in a press release. “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 analytics solutions combine SAP’s in-memory computing and Cisco’s blad and rack servers with large-memory capacity, networking and virtualization. Partners’ customers can choose from two storage options, EMC VNX5400 or NetApp FAS8040, that supports up to 16 TB of data. Avnet believes these solutions will provide cost-efficient processing and the ability to analyze large amounts of data in real time. Customers will gain insight into business operations, respond quickly to shifting priorities and reduce the cost of deploying multiple data warehouses.

“Avnet-Cisco have created a winning solution to help partners efficiently meet their business needs, while accelerating existing investments in infrastructure, tools and applications,” said Dave Kloempken, global director of data center solutions sales, Cisco, in a press release. “The alliance between Avnet and Cisco takes advantage of each team’s unique expertise in complex integration, quality testing and supply chain acceleration to fuel the ecosystem and create a true end-to-end solution. The comprehensive suite of services and enablement that Avnet provides its channel partners ensures that this will become a market-leading solution.”

Avnet’s partners will benefit from the company’s wide variety of support services that will allow them to expand their converged infrastructure capabilities. Such assistance includes pre-sales support, solution-level quoting, complex integration and programs that will help partners capture incremental revenue in high-growth markets.
