Arrow expands vCloud Air reach in the channel

Arrow pens deal with VMware to distribute vCloud Air

Distributor Arrow has been selected as an aggregator for VMware’s extension to the vCloud Air Network Program (VCAN) helping to expand the reach of the full VMware portfolio.

“We welcome Arrow as an Aggregator in the VMware vCloud Air Network,” said Graham Crich, EMEA Director Cloud & Service Providers, VMware. “Since 2008, VMware has been working with partners to provide customers with a simple and flexible path to the cloud.”

vCloud Air is a VMware-hosted service which includes virtual private cloud, dedicated cloud, and disaster recovery options. It can be used by MSPs to enhance existing platforms, enable global reach, and reduce time to market using technology that’s compatible with existing vCloud environments.

Arrow will deliver vCloud Air through ArrowSphere; a single automated platform to optimize and deliver cloud services. ArrowSphere allows MSPs to acquire VMware products in a way that aligns with their subscription-based business models and pay for consumption on a monthly basis.

Arrowsphere also provides significant automation to remove the complexities of provisioning, usage management, billing and reporting.

“We are pleased to have Arrow in the program to help service providers differentiate their businesses through managed services” said Crich.
