Azlan, a specialist division of Tech Data, has joined the Cisco Cloud Aggregator Programme and is now looking to recruit resellers in the UK.
Cisco Cloud Services Resellers (CSRs) will be able to access cloud solutions from Cisco-accredited providers and without investing in the infrastructure, will be able to sell them onto to their customers.
“Azlan’s role in the cloud is to enable partners to be successful and profitable in the reselling of cloud services,” said Joel Chimoindes, European cloud director for Azlan. “We are doing that by providing them with access to the best products and solutions platforms, alongside enablement services like StreamOne and our own expertise.“
StreamOne is Azlan’s aggregation portal, allowing resellers to manage customer usage and automate billing.
The enterprise infrastructure, data centre, software, services and cloud distie will be looking to recruit both existing CSRs and bring in new ones.
“As Cisco’s leading value distribution partner, it’s incumbent on Azlan to provide resellers with the strategic direction and the resources that will enable them to offer cloud services within the overall structure of the Cisco channel ecosystem,” said David Newbould, Business Leader UK and Ireland, Cloud Services for Azlan. “This is a four-way partnership – one in which Cisco, Azlan, cloud services providers and cloud resellers all have an equally important role to play.”
