The Advanced Solutions division of broadliner Tech Data has become a distributor of Red Hat's Certified Cloud & Service Provider (CCSP) program in France. Tech Data will now distribute Red Hat technologies to cloud and managed services providers in France. Tech Data has made Red Hat one of its partners to develop its value in technology support to operate and accelerate digital transformation projects via the cloud.
According to Frédéric Braut, Managing Director of Tech Data Advanced Solutions: "Open Source and the cloud are key technologies in the digital transformation of companies. As such, we are delighted to be able to add Red Hat to our portfolio of products and services, which will provide our Cloud Services Providers and hosting partners with the latest resources to support them in developing their Open Source practices." Jean-Christophe Morisseau, Red Hat's French Partner Sales Director for France, adds: "we are very pleased to expand our business with Tech Data. Tech Data's expertise as a distributor of Red Hat technologies and services, as well as its customer base of partners, are key assets in developing the Red Hat CCSP program in France. We are committed to providing companies and developers with a wide choice in the cloud, and creating a strong ecosystem is a key element of this vision, enabling users to create and deploy innovative applications." Cloud provider models now extend beyond the multi-tenant public cloud to the private cloud, Linux container-based infrastructures and PaaS (Platform as a Service) solutions. The Red Hat "CCSP" program was created to provide solution providers with the flexibility they need to meet their customers' expectations. Using a Red Hat Certified "CCSP" vendor means that a company can be confident that its applications will run optimally when used via a public cloud or managed service provider.
