CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq: TECD) today announced that its Technology Solutions business, formerly a division of Avnet and now part of Tech Data, has added Microsoft Azure to its award-winning Cloud Marketplace (ACM). Adding support for Microsoft Azure through ACM gives Tech Data partners the ability to manage Azure, and other cloud providers, with a cloud management toolset unmatched in the channel.
The new Tech Data Azure reseller program combines discounted Azure services with a streamlined onboarding process, providing partners in the U.S. with a unique advantage. Microsoft Azure offers end users the infrastructure needed to support their cloud and hybrid-cloud development initiatives. By delivering this powerful offering through Tech Data’s ACM, partners will be able to easily set up subscriptions to the service, and manage billing and usage for their customers. In addition, partners will have access to white-label store fronts, advanced reporting for end users, and analytics.
As a further benefit to the channel ecosystem, with Technology Solutions’ Cloud Marketplace now joining forces with Tech Data Cloud’s pioneering cloud platform, StreamOne™, Tech Data partners can leverage the benefits of a full array of world-class cloud offerings. The rise of the third platform of computing is driving rapid cloud adoption, and Tech Data’s unique end-user provisioning and billing cloud platforms stand ready to arm partners with the industry’s best cloud solutions.
