Avnet selects Nutanix as infrastructure distributor 

“We’re bringing the same design principles and technologies that power some of the world’s largest, most innovative data centers to the channel through our new distribution agreement with Nutanix,” said Scott Look, VP and GM, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, Connected and Secured Solutions group, in a press release. “With our expertise in converged and data center solutions, Avnet has the deep technical and market knowledge needed to efficiently bring Nutanix’s innovative Virtual Computing Platform to market. With Avnet’s supporting resources, partners can use Nutanix’s technology and web-scale infrastructure to solve their customers’ business challenges related to data center virtualization, disaster recovery, desktop virtualization, and testing and development.”

Avnet uses technologies from brands like VMware to distribute data centre solutions. NVCP’s converged infrastructure will integrate with this appliance by consolidating server and storage into a single tier.

With NVCP, Avnet’s partners will be able to provide solutions based on web-scale architecture to enterprise and government agency customers.

Avnet and Nutanix will work together to accelerate the adoption of web-scale infrastructure, creating solutions that exceed IT expectations and are scalable, agile, affordable, and uncompromisingly simple.”

Avnet believes this will reduce cost and storage complexity to the partners thus maximizing investments and partners can also use NVCP to implement cloud computing technologies for their customers.

Through Avnet CloudReady, the company is aiding channel community customers move their business to the cloud and also experience Avnet Cloud Solutions and its service teams.

Avnet’s infrastructure team, located in Chandler, Arizona, supports partners to integrate and assemble computing appliances based on NVCP.
