June 09, 2016

Avnet is one of the first Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) distributors to offer a comprehensive services portfolio to accelerate the success of partners in selling and implementing Composable Infrastructure.

Based on Avnet’s expertise in DevOps and Agile development, it will now offer resources, tools and services to support its U.S. and Canada partners’ sales efforts to customers operating in DevOps and Agile development environments. These offerings will help partners accelerate the sales of HPE Synergy for Composable Infrastructure, and future-proof investments with open-source automation and DevOps tools.

With HPE Synergy, partners will be able to support their customers’ DevOps strategies by leveraging a more intelligent infrastructure for provisioning agile development with the ability to deploy continuous releases of new apps at cloud-like speed, while supporting traditional, mission-critical IT workloads. Partners will be able to tap Avnet’s technical experts and new open source development tools and software platforms to automate HPE Synergy. This will enable partners to offer compelling new services that help their customers increase employee productivity and improve operating efficiencies.

“HPE Synergy for Composable Infrastructure is a great fit for partners that have customers who are moving to DevOps environments with Agile development. Avnet’s new related offerings will differentiate our HPE partners by enabling them to provide and support this advanced IT methodology,” said Greg Peterson, VP of Avnet’s HPE solutions business in the Americas. “Avnet will provide our partners with the expertise to automate and orchestrate the workloads that run on Synergy, which will help them shorten the sales cycle and create profitable new revenue streams. Avnet has years of experience orchestrating IT workflows and automating HPE deployments in complex environments. This will prove invaluable as partners adopt this new approach to software development.”

The exclusive resources, tools and services offered by Avnet in hybrid cloud automation, data center migration, technical support, and technical training uniquely position Avnet to help partners advance in the fast-growing DevOps market. Additionally, Avnet supports partners with the largest library of connectors for HPE Operations Orchestration and HPE Cloud Service Automation and can build connectors quickly for custom code. Avnet also offers assessment services, pre-sales support and post-sales implementation on its partners’ behalf.

“Fast, agile software development is becoming a critical success factor in virtually every industry today as companies look for new ways to engage customers and employees, increase productivity and provide timely access to important information,” said Greg Popham II, director, Americas Channel Hybrid IT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “Avnet provides critical training, enablement and support that facilitates sales growth around Synergy, which is particularly useful for customers engaging in Agile development for rapid and continuous deployment. Using Synergy, IT teams can deploy new infrastructure for development environments in seconds, with a single line of code and automatically scale it up and down as needed.”
