Converged computing company, Nutanix, has expanded it reach in the New Zealand market through a distribution agreement with Avnet.

Avnet will now provide its channel partners in Australia and New Zealand with Nutanix’ virtual computing platform, used to design and develop web-scale converged compute and storage infrastructure for virtualised datacentres.

Avnet vice president and general manager A/NZ, Darren Adams, said the company saw potential in offering converged infrastructure to New Zealand partners.

“The Nutanix platform will strengthen our commitment to bringing best-of-breed technology to market by offering our New Zealand partners a converged infrastructure solution that consolidates server and storage into a single, integrated appliance,” he added.

“End customers will gain the ability to extract maximum value from their existing IT investments, as this solution is simple to deploy and scale and will reduce the cost and complexity of their storage environment.”

Avnet has put a lot of energy into the partnership with Nutanix since the two companies signed a distribution agreement for Australia in September 2014. The distributor has invested in sales and technical training as well as demonstration units for partners and customers to access.

In 2015, Avnet also introduced a monthly billed hosting offering based on Nutanix converged technology.

Nutanix managing director A/NZ, Wayne Neich, said the New Zealand market presented some exciting opportunities and the distribution agreement with Avnet would lead to increased growth for the vendor.
