Arrow Electronics, Inc.

Arrow wird die SoftLayer Cloud-Dienste mittels eines neuen Wiederverkäufervertrags in den USA, Kanada, Europa, dem Nahen Osten und Afrika vertreiben.

SoftLayer bietet Kunden, die eine hochleistungsfähige Infrastruktur für Cloud-Service suchen, einzigartige Vorteile, inklusive Bare-metal und virtuelle Server in einer Plattform und ein nahtloses globales Netzwerk für herausragende Leistung, Flexibilität und Kontrolle.

„Die neue Beziehung mit SoftLayer beweist erneut Arrows Engagement für die Bereitstellung einer wertergänzenden Zusammenlegung von Cloud-Diensten, die mit unseren Datenzentren-Funktionen ausgerichtet sind und diese ergänzt“, erklärte Sean Kerins, President des Bereichs Global Enterprise Computing Solutions von Arrow. „Wir freuen uns darauf, Provider für Lösungen zu rekrutieren und zu befähigen, die SoftLayer Cloud-Infrastrukturen zu verkaufen, indem wir unseren umfassenden Services-Support mit unserer IBM-Hardware und Software-Beziehung, Erfahrung und Angeboten verbinden.“

„Arrow ist stolz darauf, die SoftLayer-Produkte über ArrowSphere, eine Cloud-Aggregationsplattform anbieten zu können, die 2012 in der EMEA-Region eingeführt und dann auf Nordamerika ausgedehnt wurde“, führte Laurent Sadoun aus, Präsident der EMEA-Region und für weltweite Services des Bereichs Enterprise Computing Solutions von Arrow. „Die Ergänzung von SoftLayer zu ArrowSphere ist eine weitere Bestätigung des Wertes, den unsere Plattform in den Kanal einbringt.“

Die modulare ArrowSphere-Plattform ermöglicht die automatisierte Bereitstellung und konsolidierte Abrechnung für Cloud-Dienste von führenden Service-Providern und die Abwicklung von Transaktionen mit über 500 Kunden täglich. Zusätzlich zu ArrowSphere, gestattet Arrow die Transformation des Kanals zur Cloud durch Workshops, Strategieplanung für Unternehmen und Hilfsmitteln zur Schaffung und Skalierung von Cloud-Funktionen.

„Arrow bietet eine globale Präsenz, umfassenden Umsatz, Marketing-Support und Erfahrung vor Ort und extern, um der SoftLayer-Gemeinschaft besseren Support bereitzustellen“, erklärte Tom Blair, Senior Vice President für Global Sales für SoftLayer. „Aufgrund des langjährigen Supports für IBM und seine Partner-Gemeinschaft ist es ideal zur Unterstützung von Anbietern von IBM-Lösungen und deren Kunden beim Übergang zur Cloud geeignet.“

„Als ein SoftLayer-Partner freuen wir uns, die ArrowSphere-Plattform zur Unterstützung der Bereitstellung von SoftLayer-Lösungen für unsere Kunden zu nutzen“, meinte John McCarthy, Präsident von Mainline. „Wir freuen uns darauf, die robuste Verkaufsschulung von Arrow, den technischen Vorverkaufssupport und das Marketing zu nutzen, um unsere SoftLayer-Geschäfte auszubauen.“
