Naresh Desai, GM-Business Development, Avnet Technology Solutions, India, said, “Virtualization is rapidly transforming the IT industry, and the traditional model of IT has become inoperable with the arrival of recent technologies like cloud computing. VMware solutions provide customers with an evolutionary path between these two models, and in partnering with VMware, we will work together to expand the use of virtualization in India. Introducing VMware solutions to our broader partner and reseller community aligns with our commitment to provide our partners with a broad range of platforms and products to take to market.”

 

T Srinivasan, MD, VMware India & SAARC, said, “Avnet is now distributing VMware solutions across the country. Our solutions help organizations drive enhanced efficiency, performance and cost savings. Avnet will enable us to deliver these benefits to an increasing number of customers in India as we expand the potential of virtualization."
