Tech Data extends HPE GreenLake distribution to Asia Pacific
The deal will initially help businesses Singapore and Hong Kong to access flexible and agile cloud services
Tech Data has extended its collaboration with HPE to bring the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform and cloud services to partners in the region.
Initially focusing on Singapore and Hong Kong, the global distributor and solution aggregator says the move will enable businesses to access a set of cloud services that will help customers tackle their most challenging business outcomes.
Bennett Wong, VP of Modern Data Center & Analytics at Tech Data, said the edge-to-cloud platform fulfils the growing demand for flexible and agile cloud services.
“Based on IDC’s research, the need for a cloud experience has accelerated, with the market collectively demanding greater agility and flexibility to address seasonality and scalability,” he said. “The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform delivers this with simplified IT operations and a single view across the entire edge-to-cloud environment.
“Together with our Center of Excellence (CoE), Tech Data is able to partner with third parties to offer a standardised, consistent HPE GreenLake deployment across all solutions.”
Designed to drive digital transformation, the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform can run on-premises, at the edge or in a colocation facility, combining the benefits of the cloud with the governance, compliance and visibility of hybrid IT setups.
The platform offers a range of cloud services, which include solutions for compute, core payment systems, data protection, electronic medical records, HCI, networking, risk management, SAP HANA, storage, and VDI.
Tech Data and HPE’s expansion in the Asia Pacific region extends a partnership that has been providing channel sales solutions to HPE resellers around the world for over 40 years.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Tech Data in the APAC region,” said Huey Lih Heng, Head of Partner Sales, HPE Asia Pacific. “As a channel-led company, our distributors play a critical role in executing our company strategy. They are the trusted advisor to our shared partners.
“With Tech Data on board as a strategic distribution partner for HPE GreenLake cloud services, we can enable more partners and customers across the region to easily access and deliver a cloud experience everywhere- at their own pace and based on their exact requirements.”
