Ingram Micro Europe and SNIA Europe Partner at World Hosting Days
By joining forces at WHD, Ingram Micro and SNIA Europe further show their commitment to helping their reseller and vendor partners' success in the advanced technology solutions, Cloud Services, and mobile device markets. Both organizations recognize that today more IT resellers and solution providers are transforming their business models and choosing become hosters and Cloud Service Providers. Becoming a Service Provider is a new and different business model. In the past year SNIA Europe and Ingram Micro have worked together as part of the Channel Transformation Alliance (www.channeltransformation.com) to develop enablement and education tools to help channel partners address the challenges and opportunities that arise with this new Cloud Service Provider business model. Ingram Micro is the distributor of choice as the 'one stop shop' from the datacenter to the device providing the industry's leading service provider software licensing from Microsoft, Symantec, VMware, Citrix, Trend Micro, and others, combined with a full portfolio of datacentre and network infrastructure hardware from Cisco, HP, IBM, NetApp, and others.
"Ingram Micro Europe and SNIA Europe are receiving growing interest and inquiry from our partners and members regarding this transformation to a Cloud Service Provider business model. Many channel partners want to become their own Cloud and to host their end-customers' infrastructure and data," says Jason Beal, Executive Director, Advanced Solutions Division, Ingram Micro Europe. "Our role as a multi-specialist distributor and a leading storage industry association is to use platforms like the World Hosting Days to discuss the various technical, legal, financial, and commercial dynamics associated with the Cloud Service Provider business model."
