San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
Xsigo Systems, Inc., the leader in virtualized data center infrastructure, today announced that it has signed a pan-European distribution agreement spanning 27 countries with Arrow Enterprise Computing Solutions, a business segment of Arrow Electronics Inc. This agreement draws from Xsigo’s unique virtual I/O technologies and Arrow’s server, storage and virtualization expertise to create a highly effective combination. Arrow’s proven experience in the enterprise IT market gives Xsigo solution providers across Europe, Middle East and Africa access to a rich set of capabilities and services.
Benefits to solution providers include proven Xsigo solution stacks tailored to specific application environments. Arrow’s strong relationships with suppliers including VMware, EMC, IBM and Oracle allow it to build and document reference architectures that are blueprinted answers to today’s most challenging data center issues, such as virtual server performance, cost containment, and infrastructure scalability. Solution providers will be able to demonstrate these technologies live using Xsigo equipment installed at regional Arrow demonstration centers.
The relationship built with Arrow has all the elements instrumental to the success of a growing alliance. Michelle Humphreys, business development director of Xsigo EMEA has already witnessed the impact of this alliance, commenting, “Arrow has provided Xsigo with a proven sales force, technical expertise and a channel-optimized business infrastructure that stands alone in the industry. Xsigo can now offer our resellers industry-leading support together with our best-of-breed virtual I/O products. The combination will allow us to better serve our resellers and build our mutual business by delivering innovative products and services to our customers.”
Working in collaboration with Arrow, Xsigo has deployed sales and technical teams in the Benelux, DACH and Nordic regions, as well as in Ireland and the UK. In response to the exponentially growing demand for Xsigo products in EMEA, more regions will be added soon.
"The addition of Xsigo’s highly innovative family of virtual I/O products further expands our diverse portfolio of solutions for the entire data center,” said Julien Peronneau, vice president of EMEA operations and business transformation for Arrow ECS. “Xsigo provides virtualized infrastructure that complements server virtualization and is fast, easy to architect and cost-effective. These products help our resellers efficiently build out their customers’ cloud infrastructure."
