Arrow ECS Announces Agreement with HiveIO


Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS has entered into a strategic agreement with HiveIO. Arrow Electronics will be the key distributor for HiveIO in the UK and offer its channel customers the industry’s first hyperconverged fabric solution - Hive Fabric.

As a leading technology enablement company that brings innovative IT solutions to market to solve complex business challenges, Arrow adds HiveIO to its broad portfolio of best-of-breed solutions that are designed to help businesses grow faster, operate efficiently and transform in a dynamic market. Current IT architecture requires highly skilled specialists with a range of certifications to manage the data centre. Offering all the components of a hyperconverged solution, Hive Fabric addresses the performance, scale, and security that enterprises demand while eliminating complex licensing and multi-vendor integration and management that come with traditional hyperconverged infrastructure. HiveIO delivers next-generation technology replacing the entire stack with the only zero-layer, hardware and vendor agnostic architecture on the market.

This agreement is very exciting for both organisations. It combines HiveIO’s innovative approach to software-defined data centre with Arrow’s strong portfolio and capabilities for the channel. Hive Fabric offers significant value to our customers and will enable them to build a powerful data centre. We are confident that we will increase hyperconverged fabric adoption amongst our customers”, said Mark McHale, vice president UK & Ireland of Arrow ECS.

Dan Newton, CEO HiveIO Inc. said: “this agreement enables Arrow and HiveIO to bring the benefits of hyperconverged fabric to many more customers, and provide these customers with innovative and trendsetting technology."
