Cologix, a North American network-neutral interconnection and colocation company, has entered into a distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics. Cologix’s Channel Partner Program complements and expands the Arrow portfolio with colocation and interconnection services available in eight unique markets in the United States and Canada.
The Cologix solutions are available via Arrow’s ArrowSphere cloud marketplace. Through Cologix’s Channel Partner Program, Arrow solution providers would be able to offer scalable interconnection and secure, reliable colocation services from one of North America’s largest neutral marketplaces where network operators and network buyers interconnect.
Cologix data centers, located in Columbus, Dallas, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Minneapolis, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, offer access to 350 unique network choices. The company serves more than 850 carrier, managed services, cloud, media, content, financial services and enterprise customers. Arrow solution providers would gain local sales resources in each market, marketing support, and a straightforward deal registration and commission process.
ArrowSphere Cloud Platform
The ArrowSphere Platform simplifies the management of multiple cloud solutions and enables solution providers by automating the provisioning and billing of cloud hosting services. The platform provides various engagement paths for solution providers, cloud resellers and cloud builders.
Solution providers reselling cloud hosting services may choose between Arrow-managed, solution provider-managed, customer-managed and an e-commerce experience by connecting through their existing virtual storefront. MSPs can utilize ArrowSphere to build cloud solutions by integrating their own services with Arrow cloud hosting services and cloud-builder products.
“Cologix colocation and interconnection data centers are strategically placed in key USA and Canadian markets and strengthens our position as a leader in cloud services aggregation for the mid-tier and enterprise channel,” said Dee Dee Lear, vice president of cloud and business development for Arrow’s North American enterprise computing solutions business. “Our solution provider and managed service provider partners now can build public, private and hybrid IT solutions for their clients and extend their services platforms in key cities.”
