Arrow Adds Rackspace to #Cloud Services Portfolio

Arrow Electronics, Inc., today announced a distribution agreement with Rackspace, a leading managed cloud company, that will expand the company’s cloud service portfolio in the United States and Canada.

Through the agreement, Arrow solution providers can enter the Rackspace reseller program that provides volume discounts, pre- and post-sales support and access to helpdesk services and financing services.

The Rackspace managed cloud portfolio includes among other services: public multi-tenant, private and dedicated single-tenant cloud servers, as well as data stores, e-commerce, digital marketing and VMware®-powered solutions.

“Rackspace is an industry leader in the managed cloud market and a compelling offering for our solution providers and their customers,” said Dee Dee Lear, vice president of cloud and business development for Arrow’s North American enterprise computing solutions business. “As our priority is to offer best-in-class services aligned with our solution providers’ core expertise and to accelerate their on-ramp to the cloud, we are pleased to bring Rackspace solutions to our solution provider community.”

“Our agreement with Arrow represents a key strategic move extending the value of Rackspace’s managed cloud offering deep into the enterprise segment,” said Todd Cione, senior vice president of America sales at Rackspace. “Through our shared emphasis on delivering specialized expertise, this collaboration with Arrow will allow us to extend the reach of our Fanatical Support® to leading solution providers within the United States and Canadian market, and eventually expand on a global scale.”

The Rackspace solutions are available through ArrowSphere, a platform that provides the channel ecosystem, such as managed service and solution providers and independent software vendors, with easy access to cloud services. ArrowSphere features best-of-breed offerings from leading service providers, as well as customizable webstores through which solution providers can present Arrow cloud offerings, as well as their own cloud services, to customers.
