Eric Gourmelen, vice president IT for Arrow ECS, said: “data sovereignty and GDPR compliance are key considerations for our channel partners and their end-users. Our collaboration with hyperscaler Scaleway strengthens our offerings of cloud solutions based in Europe. Thanks to the ‘ArrowSphere fast onboarding’ program launched earlier this year, the quality of our APIs, and technical expertise of both companies, the integration of Scaleway offerings in ArrowSphere happened very fast.”
Yann Lechelle, CEO at Scaleway, said: “we are delighted to have signed this agreement with Arrow. The addition of Scaleway to ArrowSphere will make it easy for channel partners to access our cloud solutions ecosystem. The collaboration will be a vital component of our growth strategy, and Arrow’s marketing support also makes it easy to target by country, growing our marketplace in Europe. Our solutions are designed and built to work together. Each element, which includes compute, storage and network modules, can be added to a project in just a few clicks and so the infrastructure can grow and flex as required.“
