This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2017.02.15
Arrow Electronics, Inc. will roll out dozens of Microsoft-based hybrid cloud solution bundles over the next year, providing Arrow's reseller ecosystem with in-demand, easy-to-implement cross-vendor solutions aimed at helping them solve complex end-customer business challenges and increase revenue streams.
Arrow unveiled the first three of its Microsoft hybrid cloud solution bundles:
- Commvault + Azure Backup: An easy-to-scale solution to move and manage workloads to the cloud; will lower costs by replacing tape and disk storage, streamlining multi-site protection and consolidating data centers. It also centralizes data protection to reduce risk.
- Spanning Backup from Dell EMC + Microsoft Office 365: Spanning Backup for Office 365 automatically backups Office 365 Email, Calendars and OneDrive for Business data daily. If data is deleted or damaged, you'll be able to get it back right away-and get everyone right back to work.
- Veeam Backup & Replication to Microsoft Azure: Offers speed of recovery and near-CDP with built-in replication, along with recovery and e-discovery for Exchange, SharePoint and Active Directory, as well as transaction-level recovery of SQL databases.
Arrow will rollout additional Microsoft hybrid cloud solution bundles through 2016 and 2017, adding suppliers such as Equinix, Inc., HPE, TrendMicro, Inc., Riverbed Technology, Inc., NetApp, Inc., and their respective complementary products.
With these cross-vendor bundled solutions, Arrow is aggregating cloud-build and -resale solutions from vendors into one, easy-to-use platform: the global ArrowSphere marketplace. VARs and MSPs can quickly quote, order, provision and bill directly from ArrowSphere; they can also integrate a broad menu of Arrow value-add service wrappers to meet almost any end-customer need.
"Given Arrow's commitment to offering best of breed solutions across Microsoft's cloud offerings, we're thrilled that Arrow selected Spanning Backup for Office 365 as part of its portfolio," said Jeff Erramouspe, VP and GM, Spanning by Dell EMC. "The collaboration is already off to a great start with nearly 20 joint customers coming online through Arrow's ecosystem of VARs. Our commitment is to make it easy for Arrow's partner network to sell Spanning solutions with the right level of service and support to sustain profitable growth."
