Vamsi Mudiam, IBM India/South Asia cloud leader said, “the Avnet and IBM strategic collaboration will focus on every client's specific compute needs and give them the flexibility and opportunity to scale.”
IBM said the SmartCloud will enable Avnet partners to offer their customers access to enterprise-level IT at affordable price points without additional investment in infrastructure, security, back-up, upgrades and maintenance.
“As the need for a robust, yet affordable, IT infrastructure rises, cloud computing presents a significant value proposition to customers and service providers,“ said Naresh Desai, general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, India.
IBM added the partnership allows Avnet cloud users to adopt “a robust cloud architecture and service model, leapfrogging the traditional investment in enterprise IT. “
