Distributor Arrow Electronics said it had received two gongs at the VMWare partner exchange.
It picked up the Partner Network award and also was recognised as emEA Distributor Partner of the year.
Jesper Trolle, VP of sales for Arrow enterprise computing in EMEA said his company has a key focus on products such as VMWare’s desktop-as-a-service and NSX network virtualisation. That contributes to the channel’s bottom line.
And Dave O’Callaghan, senior VP at VMWare in charge of partners said Arrow had distinguished itself at the global level. “We congratulate Arrow on winning a global VMWare Partner network award.”
Arrow supplies over 100,000 OEMs, contract manufacturers and commercial customers. It operates across 460 place in 58 countries.
Data management firm Quantum Corp said it has recruited Arrow Electronics as a distributor in EMEA.
Its logic is that it wants to provide better support for its VARs and to recruit VARs in new markets.
Jesper Trolle, VP for Arrow enterprise said: “We look forward to helping Quantium’s reseller partners grow business through our pan-European presence, our data centre enterprise experience, and in customer training.”
That will include big data management, he said.
Quantium said: “Arrow’s pan-EMEA reach will provide strong support for continued expansion into new market and help us drive further growth in our existing markets.”
Arrow (tick: ARW) releases its Q3 results at the end of this month.
