EMC is using  Avnet Technology Solutions to distribute its products in Belgium and Luxembourg building on an existing deal in the Netherlands.

It says there is a growing demand for technologies such as Converged Infrastructure Solutions (VSPEX and VCE), scale-out NAS (Isilon), Storage (VNX series), Data Protection and Availability Solutions in Belgium and Luxembourg.

"We are delighted to have secured this new partnership with a large distributor like Avnet, who has strong technological knowledge and expertise in the storage market. Thanks to this partnership we will be able to broaden our sales network for our Converged Infrastructure solutions with Cisco and VMWare. Avnet’s ‘Altitude’ programme will give us the opportunity to introduce our entry level storage and backup solutions designed for small and medium-sized business. This will create a significant opportunity for resellers and partners who can develop new businesses and growth. We also strongly believe Avnet is the right partner to find the new partners who can enlarge and diversify our current partner landscape," says Arnaud Bacros, country manager Belux, EMC.
