Tech Data, a major worldwide IT distributor and solutions aggregator, today announced that their Cloud Solution Factory on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is expanded with outcome-based cloud solutions. By expanding the AWS solution catalog, Tech Data’s clients now have access to a new variety of fully verified ‘Click to Run’ solutions to solve a wide range of business issues and help simplify cloud operations.
The new solutions are accessible internationally through Tech Data’s StreamOne Cloud Marketplace, a single platform that simplifies the purchase, deployment, and administration of major cloud provider services. StreamOne is designed to offers a global solutions marketplace, dashboards, analytics, white-label storefronts, multi-cloud invoicing, and self-service lifecycle management – to help IT resellers expand their cloud businesses.
“Cloud technology is evolving rapidly and continues to drive digital transformation; enterprises are increasingly investing in the cloud infrastructure to enhance mobility, collaboration, and customer-facing innovations,” said Sergio Farache, executive vice president of strategy, innovation, cloud and next generation technologies at Tech Data. “Expanding our AWS cloud solutions catalog is an important step to deliver higher value to our partners by aggregating and orchestrating next-generation solutions. It also helps increase their speed to market and reach, while reducing time and risk for customers in the process and is easy to scale up and down to align with business needs.”
AWS pre-configured solutions for Core Infrastructure, Application Modernization, and Data Protection have been included to the catalog expansion. Tech Data is always introducing new solutions to its portfolio in important practice areas. The service is aimed equally at mid-market and small- and medium-sized enterprises, whether they are just getting started with cloud or are more established firms wanting to maximize resources, simplify operations, and improve productivity.
“Speed and agility are critical elements our customers need for mission-focused enterprise adoption and to accelerate innovation,” said Sandy Carter, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector Partners and Programs at AWS. “We are excited Tech Data expanded their suite of AWS solutions to include Click to Run, which will enable small- and medium-sized Amazon Partner Network businesses to provision and deploy key cloud solutions in less than an hour instead of waiting hours, days, or weeks.”
The Tech Data Solution Factory technique helps organizations address problems by providing ready-to-deploy solutions that are easy and quick to implement. These solutions are created by combining a diverse set of suppliers and technical skills to achieve business results using cutting-edge technologies such as cloud, analytics, and IoT, as well as security.
“We are eager to start leveraging these solutions from Tech Data to help us automate current configuration and deployment processes that are often time-consuming and complex,” said Brandon Kaier, Field CTO at Red8, an IT Services Provider and Tech Data partner. “These solutions provide us with a competitive advantage to deliver faster results to our customers, as well as giving us the opportunity to optimize our resources more efficiently and with greater profitability.”
