The North America Services Division of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced its Cloud Marketplace now offers 170 solutions including new telecom services, hardware as a service (HaaS) bundles and more than a dozen new cloud-based services.
“The impressive year-over-year success of Ingram Micro’s cloud business and our Cloud Summit, combined with the mounting success of our channel partners, are excellent performance indicators that affirm our belief that 2013 will be a strong year for cloud services in the IT channel,” says Renee Bergeron, vice president of managed services and cloud computing, Ingram Micro North America. “We’re pleased to further expand the Ingram Micro Cloud portfolio as we continue to demonstrate the success, opportunity and positive impact cloud services are having on the IT channel and in particular for our channel partners. Additionally, we’re thrilled to see the attendance of our Cloud Summit soar to a record-setting 800 attendees.”
The offerings being launched at the 2013 “All Sky. No Limit.” Cloud Summit include Ingram Micro’s new Cloud Telecom Services. Available now and a first for distribution, this new program aggregates the voice and data services and support offerings from many of the nation’s leading telecom carriers including CenturyLink and Time Warner Cable Business Class into a channel-friendly delivery model that offers channel partners standardized pricing and support services to complement existing cloud and hardware/software solutions.
Also making its debut this week is the Ingram Micro HaaS program which enables U.S. channel partners to expand their managed service offering with no upfront cost by reselling hardware/software/cloud services packages to their end users at an economical monthly price. Available now, the new HaaS Program features three different laptop and Microsoft office bundles from both Lenovo and HP. Additional vendors and hardware packages will be added throughout the year.
