Arrow was a SimpliVity and Nimble distributor, and HPE bought both in the last year. On 1 November HPE made Nimble available to all its UK distributors but said it was in discussions with Arrow about its UK role.
HPE’s UK channel boss Mark Armstrong said that it was decided to add Arrow to HPE’s distribution channel to reach new customers.
The agreement will see Arrow continue to distribute Nimble and SimpliVity.
Arrow’s director of solutions Dan Waters said: “HPE’s portfolio further enables our customers to add incremental business across solution practices in business intelligence and analytics, data management, IoT, and next-generation infrastructure technologies.
“It fits seamlessly into our value-added model and the propositions of our reseller community. The collaboration will further expand the successful work we’ve already been doing with Nimble and SimpliVity.”
