To support the increasing demand for cloud computing, Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) has announced the launch of its Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace – an automated cloud services platform – in Portugal.
This further extends the European roll-out of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace which is currently available in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is an ecosystem that brings together buyers and sellers, enabling them to conduct business on a single platform. Rather than building out a comprehensive and multi-layered infrastructure, resellers can leverage the pre-built, flexible platform from Ingram Micro to purchase, provision, manage and invoice technology solutions including Microsoft Office 365, Dropbox Business, Nomadesk, and Acronis Cloud Backup for their end-user clients.
“We are pleased to provide a flexible and customizable infrastructure to our channel partners in Portugal and empower them to focus on their core competencies rather than divert valuable resources to building a cloud platform infrastructure,” said Juame Soler, executive director, Portugal and Spain, Ingram Micro. “The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace presents a true competitive advantage for our partners by helping them reduce time-to-market and deliver streamlined cloud management solutions through a single online portal.”
