Avnet Featured in CRN 2016 Cloud Partner Program Guide

Guide highlights Avnet’s solutions for public, private and hybrid cloud environments


Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Avnet in its 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide, a list of leading technology companies with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.

The CRN 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide serves as a valuable resource for solution providers navigating the booming cloud marketplace, helping them to identify technology suppliers that offer innovative cloud solutions and partner programs. To qualify for participation in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, technology vendors must have a unique set of partner program benefits for solution providers that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.

Avnet continues to evolve its pioneering Avnet Cloud Marketplace, its one-stop shop that offers comprehensive solutions from leading cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services and IBM, flexible payment models, and a powerful cloud management toolset. With its ever-increasing offerings, the Avnet Cloud Marketplace has taken an end-to-end approach with cloud computing – including public, private and hybrid solutions – creating scalable solutions to subscription and consumption models to support various types of partners. The Avnet Cloud Marketplace enables partners to quickly and cost-effectively expand their offerings, transforming them into the single-source cloud provider and trusted advisor customers want, and it provides a comprehensive platform that spans the entire cloud ecosystem, providing a way to easily buy, bill, manage and optimize cloud services in the U.S. and Canada.

“This continued recognition from CRN underscores the value of the Avnet Cloud portfolio to our partners, as well as the ability of these Avnet partners to deliver essential cloud IT services that help their customers enhance business agility and improve time to market,” said Tim FitzGerald, vice president of Digital Transformation, Avnet Technology Solution, Americas. “Avnet delivers high-performance, secure, reliable and scalable cloud, automation, orchestration and data integration solutions for all workloads that help solve today’s business-to-business cloud computing challenges.” 

“For channel partners, active support for their cloud-based solutions is more critical than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide recognizes vendors that provide excellent resources, training and financial incentives for cloud, doing their best to help partners make the most of this now foundational practice area. We congratulate all the innovative, forward-looking companies on the 2016 list and invite the solution provider community to take full advantage of this terrific resource for finding the right cloud vendors to partner with.”

Avnet’s approach to the cloud exemplifies how Avnet is helping its partners excel through specialization and capitalize on the high-growth, next-generation technologies that are redefining the future. In addition to the cloud, partners can leverage Avnet’s in-depth expertise in complementary technology market segments, including cognitive computing, data analytics, the data center, the Internet of Things (IOT), mobility, security and enterprise networking.

The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at
