Avnet Selected to Address Growing Demand Across EMEA for Pre-Validated SmartStack Integrated Infrastructure Solutions
LONDON, UK – September 16, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today announced the pan-EMEA expansion of its distribution agreement with Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, based on the success of the proven partnership in North America. Avnet will now offer the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform, along with SmartStack integrated infrastructure solutions to partners across Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UK.
The Nimble Adaptive Flash platform is now the preferred choice for more than 6,200 customers in over 50 countries around the world. In contrast to legacy and flash-only storage architectures and systems that are deployed and managed in disparate silos to support applications based on their unique characteristics and requirements, the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform offers a single storage architecture that dynamically caters to the needs of enterprise-wide workloads across performance, capacity, and data protection – delivering on the full potential and benefits of storage consolidation. Nimble SmartStack integrated infrastructure solutions, based on Cisco UCS and Nimble CS-Series arrays, offer enterprise customers an end-to-end tested and pre-validated reference architecture to accelerate application deployments and eliminate the business risks associated with deploying disparate data center infrastructure.
The expanded agreement enables Avnet to extend its converged infrastructure portfolio by offering Nimble SmartStack integrated infrastructure solutions. These pre-validated reference architectures minimize the challenges associated with deploying application, server, hypervisor, networking, and storage components as an integrated solution. EMEA-based partners now have the flexibility to purchase SmartStack solutions from a single source distributor.
“We’re experiencing strong demand and a rapid pace of customer adoption for SmartStack integrated infrastructure solutions, doubling customer implementations on a year-over-year basis. We attribute some of this impressive growth to the strength of the partnership we’ve had in place with Avnet over the past two years in North America,” said Clare Loveridge, vice president of sales for EMEA at Nimble Storage. “The strength of our partnership has led to the pan-EMEA expansion that will now enable our regional partners to increase sales and accelerate the speed at which they can offer pre-validated solutions to enterprise customers and prospects.”
Dieter Lott, vice president business development at Avnet Technology Solutions EMEA, commented, “Adding Nimble Storage, a market-leading flash storage vendor to our portfolio has many advantages. Our partners are demanding simple, efficient and innovative storage solutions to address the requirements of growing enterprises and Nimble Storage is a perfect fit. Equally, SmartStack integrated infrastructure solutions enhance our converged infrastructure portfolio by marrying the expertise of Avnet, Nimble and Cisco. Our extensive partnership with these two technology leaders reduces converged infrastructure architectural complexity and risk, making it more accessible to our partners to take to market. Delivering this simplicity enables partners to transform technology into business solutions for end-users.”
