SINGAPORE — Avnet Technology Solutions, a solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc., (NYSE: AVT), announced that it has been authorized by EMC to distribute its products and solutions portfolio for the Singapore market. As part of the agreement, Avnet will provide its independent software vendor (ISV), system integrator (SI) and value-added reseller (VAR) partners with EMC technology, including products for converged infrastructure1 and data solutions related to Big Data, cloud computing, and storage. In addition, Avnet partners can take advantage of Avnet’s assembly and integration services to offer pre-configured, fully-tested solutions based on EMC technology, which can be delivered to customers’ sites with certified shipping.
The distribution agreement brings Avnet and EMC together in the Asia Pacific region for the first time and provides the opportunity to expand their relationship throughout the region to offer its ecosystem of business partners with EMC offerings.
