IT distributor Ingram Micro has combined Veeam’s backup with Zadara’s cloud compute and storage solutions into a new all-in-one data center offering. The templated and customizable Veeam backup and Zadara cloud compute and storage solution sets would solve for the hybrid infrastructure and storage needs and wants of today’s distributed enterprise.
Additionally, these Veeam and Zadara solutions are being sold ‘as a service’ by Ingram Micro – making them a 100% operational expense versus a capital expense for the enterprise.
“By bringing Veeam backup and Zadara Cloud Services to market together, we are shortening the sales and deployment cycles for our channel partners around two of the most in-demand solutions – dependable enterprise backup and secure compute and storage cloud services,” said Ryan Grant, executive director, Integrated Solutions, Ingram Micro. “This relationship also demonstrates the power of ONE Ingram Micro and the end-to-end experience we’re able to deliver locally and globally at scale.”
Ingram Micro’s Integration Center
At the heart of the new alliance is Ingram Micro’s Integration Center. Established in 2018, the Mira Loma-based Integration Center builds technology from the ground up to spec or specialization. It would offer channel partners everything from system design to compatibility and regulatory engineering. As part of the expanded relationship, both Veeam and Zadara are leveraging the qualified engineering skill and solutions expertise found within Ingram Micro’s Integration Center – to extend their reach into the channel and deliver a better and differentiated partner experience.
“Ingram Micro has served as a preferred distributor for Veeam since 2009 and continues to add more value to the mix for our mutual channel partners through its Integration Center, flexible financing solutions and growing bench of cross-trained sales leaders,” said Dangvy Keller, vice president of distribution sales, Americas, Veeam. “Going to market with Ingram Micro and Zadara is a growth catalyst for our channel partners and a competitive win for Veeam.”
“The distributed enterprise is demanding flexible, consumption-based edge-cloud solutions built for agility and scale,” said Gene Cunningham, vice president, North America, Zadara. “We are excited to further align our business with Ingram Micro and Veeam to offer channel partners award-winning, fully-managed storage, backup and recovery services delivered in a 100% OpEx model and free from data transfer fees and long-term contracts.”
