Works with Synnex to address large data center and campus networking needs
Networking vendor Arista Networks is looking to distributor Synnex to help expand its channel network and market coverage to address the growing need for large data center and campus-wide networking needs.
The Lowdown: Through the new distribution agreement, solution providers will have access to the full breadth of Arista hardware and software-defined networking products and services. Arista offers solution providers an alternative networking supplier to vendors that include market leader Cisco, as well as Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, Extreme Networks, and Juniper Networks.
The Details: Synnex is providing more than product availability and logistics to Arista and solution providers. The distributor will offer solution providers pre- and post-sales support, customer networking needs assessments, on-site and virtual technical support, training, not-for-resale appliances, and business development services.
The Buzz: “Arista Networks continues to provide simplified yet intuitive offerings that meet the increased need for leading technology solutions around data center and campus networking,” said Reyna Thompson, senior vice president of product management for North America at Synnex. “We are pleased to complement their solutions with a dedicated Synnex team, as well as our extensive pre- and post-sales support offerings, which enable customers to effectively take advantage of this exciting, high-growth market.”
“We are pleased to work with Synnex to expand our channel reach as we continue to invest in our data center and campus networking solutions,” said Ed Chapman, vice president of business development, strategic alliances, and worldwide channel sales at Arista. “Their expertise in secure networking, paired with their deep level of service and support offerings, will help resellers take their businesses to new heights.”
