Infrastructure VAD Tech Data Advanced Solutions Germany has signed a distribution agreement with Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions. Tech Data distribution partners in Germany will thus be able to offer proven solutions from Vertiv for current data centre challenges.
Data centre strategies in companies follow relevant market and industry trends as well as rapidly developing technological innovations. In today's world, IT management is challenged to increase availability and responsiveness while reducing costs and doing more with less. Outdated infrastructures, rising power and cooling costs and increased space requirements are the main reasons that drive companies to continuously optimise their business operations and data centre management.
This makes it all the more important for solution providers to act as trusted advisors to their customers in all data centre matters. Through the new distribution agreement with Vertiv, Tech Data and its partners are now able to address all key data centre challenges from a single source.
"The expansion of our product spectrum to include the range of products from the manufacturer Vertiv offers our partners the opportunity to map projects holistically", comments Thomas Kleinkuhnen, Director Enterprise Infrastructure at Tech Data. "Vertiv completes the Tech Data Advanced Solutions portfolio with infrastructure support products that are essential for the operation of traditional data centres and hybrid IT. In particular, operators of cloud environments or providers of managed services will also benefit from this expansion. In combination with the other hardware and software vendors in our portfolio, we enable any partners to build and offer ready-to-run data centres."
Vertiv's broad data centre product and solution portfolio makes it an ideal addition to Tech Data's offering. Vertiv offers all the components needed to build modern, resilient infrastructures - from rack cabinets to power supplies, cooling solutions, management and monitoring, control room equipment and complete turnkey data centre solutions.
"With Tech Data Advanced Solutions, we have now brought on board a solutions distributor that covers all channel-relevant providers for data centre products in Germany", explains Ismayil Basusta, Channel Director DACH at Vertiv.
"We are expanding the Tech Data offering for complete data centres of all classes and sizes", adds Katja Neumann, Distribution Manager DACH, at Vertiv. "We are also expanding our access to more system partners and vertical markets."
