(BW)(IL-VIZIONCORE)Vizioncore Signs Distribution Agreement with Avnet Technology Solutions India
Vizioncore to Focus on Value-Added Distribution Model With Avnet
Hoffman Estates, Illinois, United States, Thursday, April 29, 2010 -- (Business Wire India) --
Vizioncore Inc., the market leader in virtual data protection and management solutions, has signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement with Avnet Technology Solutions, India. Avnet is an ideal fit for Vizioncore in the region because it can offer a comprehensive suite of Vizioncore products complementing VMware, in addition to the existing VMware portfolio. Vizioncore is a wholly owned subsidiary of Quest Software, Inc.
Since entering the Indian market in 2008, Vizioncore has partnered with six of the top 10 VMware resellers, and significantly expanded its customer base across industry sectors. As the virtualization market in India continues to mature, the agreement with Avnet will allow Vizioncore to broaden its reach across more channels.
"Virtualization is one of the most significant factors shaping IT infrastructure and operations in India," said Naresh Desai, general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, India. "It's so widespread that we see many products now in development to cope with associated issues like bottlenecks and lifecycle management. It's not just about hypervisors anymore; the attention really has switched to technologies that enable end users to take control of their virtual environments."
"With this partnership, we will leverage our extensive partner base to expand Vizioncore's reach in India, and present our channel with cutting-edge solutions," Desai added.
Avnet first launched its VirtualPath program in the U.S., where partners who actively participated in the program saw significant increases in their business. Avnet has initiated the program in India, educating the reseller community with support from vendors such as Vizioncore.
"Vizioncore will continue to focus its efforts on broadening its reseller base in India, and the agreement with Avnet forms a key part of our ongoing strategy," explained Gucharan Singh, regional director for Asia, Vizioncore. "Rising levels of demand from customers suggest that the virtualization market has reached a tipping point in India, and reseller-focused initiatives such as Avnet's VirtualPath program provide another welcome step in the right direction."
