Technology distributor Ingram Micro EMEA, a division of Ingram Micro Inc., has signed a distribution agreement with VMware to supply the full breadth of VMware virtualisation solutions to the IT reseller channel in the Nordics.
The agreement complements the existing distribution agreements between Ingram Micro and market-leader VMware in Germany, North America and Australia.
By expanding the availability of the full set of VMware solutions to the Nordic region, Ingram Micros reseller customers in Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway can take full advantage of the enormous sales growth opportunities for VMware virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter that enable customers of all sizes to reduce capital and operating expenses, ensure business continuity, strengthen security and go green.
VMware virtualization software is part of Ingram Micros Value Add offering. We are pleased to add VMwares full range of virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter to our Value Add portfolio. By working with VMware, Ingram Micro makes virtualization accessible to customers of all sizes in the Nordics, said Magnus Hgvall, Managing Director Ingram Micro Nordic Region. Through this agreement, Ingram Micros resellers will be able to offer their customers virtualisation solutions that can contribute to reduced operating costs, improved security, assured business continuity and reduced carbon emissions.
At VMware we recognise the value of channel relationships and the ability to proliferate virtualization through close collaboration with the right distribution partners, said Lewis Gee, VP Northern Europe, VMware. Our customers value VMware virtualization solutions for their superior functionality, unsurpassed reliability, and enormous cost-saving benefits. Ingram Micros distribution in the Nordics, as elsewhere, brings these benefits to a much wider range of customers, especially to the extensive SMB reseller base Ingram commands in this region.
