Arrow Electronics launches Data Centre Modernisation Cloud Initiative

Global technology solutions provider Arrow Electronics has launched a new modernisation initiative that empowers the channel to help their customers extend data centre infrastructures and services to the cloud.

Based on Arrow`s new service offering, channel customers are able to build an enhanced technology and services economy around data centre solutions to address the requirements of enterprises: High flexibility and scalability, reliable services, secure and compliant infrastructures, and the capability to easily add new innovations as they become available.


Following an in-depth analysis by Arrow to validate cloud readiness both from an organisational and a technical perspective and existing services that can be moved to the cloud, value-added resellers and managed service providers benefit from:

  • Support with strategy definition and market positioning

  • Financing and premium support services

  • Access to market-leading cloud vendors and Arrow data centre specialists who help planning the migration in a phased process to minimise potential risks

  • Extending the range of services and reducing time-to-deployment and maintenance costs

  • The ability to add new customers to the cloud, refresh software and hardware when it is needed and react quickly to urgent capacity needs

  • Independence from legacy hardware

  • A value recovery option to roll-back existing infrastructure equipment and to recover value for legacy or retired assets

Arrow’s offering initially builds on Microsoft Azure but is open to extension for other cloud solution providers.

“With our latest initiative, we enable the channel community to transform its business by bringing unparalleled value-added solutions and service package to the core of the IT world: the data centre”, says Mark McHale, VP of UK and Ireland at Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business. “While multi-cloud emerges, resellers and end customers will benefit from much more flexible and secure, data-driven models and the capability to fully leverage the cloud opportunity.”
