Today, Tech Data Corporation confirmed that its Technology Solutions arm has added ParkMyCloud to its award winning ‘one-stop shop’ for cloud solutions – The Avnet Cloud Marketplace.
The new offering is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) tool that allows customers of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure to eliminate unnecessary cloud spending. The solution allows businesses to schedule on and off times for idle cloud computing services, rather than rely on scripts that need to be activated manually.
Since cloud services are automatically on unless they are specifically turned off, organizations often end up paying for services when they are not required, such as over the weekend and on public holidays. The solution allows organizations to only pay for services they are using, offering savings of up to 60% off of compute bills.
Technology Solutions has also added a further two new services to the Avnet Cloud Marketplace. HotLink is the only VMware-certified disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) and business continuity solution that is deeply integrated with VMware management. The solution offers automated VMware protection in AWS along with backup and replication to allow organizations to quickly recover from disasters such as security breaches, network failures, software problems, and other disaster conditions.
Zadara Storage is a storage-as-a-service (STaaS) solution for the most demanding of enterprise applications. The feature-rich solution offers pay-by-the-hour enterprise-level SAN, NAS and object storage.
Tech Data has also confirmed that the solutions are supplied with a powerful cloud management toolset and are available on flexible payment terms.
The addition of these three new services broadens the range of services available through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace and allows U.S. and Canadian partners to take full advantage of the expanding cloud market and deliver industry-leading cloud-based solutions to customers quickly. Stacy Nethercoat, vice president, Tech Data Cloud, Americas at Tech Data said, “These suppliers offer game-changing products that will empower our partners with an exciting new set of resources and tools, allowing them to quickly onboard new cloud offerings and deliver the solutions their customers are demanding.”
