PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, today announced the addition of two new partner programs to the award-winning Avnet Cloud Marketplace. The new programs align with Avnet’s strategy to provide partners with a one-stop shop for cloud solutions from leading cloud service providers, along with flexible payment models and a powerful cloud management toolset.

The new partner programs are designed to help partners in the U.S. and Canada take advantage of growth opportunities in the cloud market, and they include:

  • Avnet AWS CloudFront Reseller Program : Designed to build strategic partnerships with key Avnet Amazon Web Services (AWS) partners who enable content delivery network (CDN) specific workloads for their end customers. Partners now have access to Amazon CloudFront, a global CDN service that accelerates delivery of websites, APIs, video content or other web assets. It integrates with other Amazon Web Services products to provide partners with a way to accelerate content to end users with no minimum usage commitments.
  • Avnet Oracle Reseller Program : Gives partners the benefit of Avnet’s technical expertise and intellectual property in a ready-to-market solution. It enables partners with an out-of-the-box branded storefront ready to resell the most popular Oracle Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions with quick time to market and revenue value propositions in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Additionally, partners are now able to access and resell Avnet’s Managed Services through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace. By relying on Avnet’s managed services capabilities, partners can keep their employees focused on business-critical IT initiatives and free up resources to further drive growth. At the same time, partners will be able to offer customers a way to keep pace with technology changes in complex environments.

“The Avnet Cloud Marketplace offers our partners an easy way to expand and deliver their industry-leading cloud solutions for their customers,” said Tim FitzGerald, vice president of digital transformation, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas. “These new programs and enhancements equip partners with a new set of resources and tools to allow them to quickly onboard new cloud offerings and provide their customers the solutions they demand.”
