Arrow extends HPE cloud distribution to the UK

Arrow Electronics has extended its European Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) cloud and networking distribution to the UK. The UK deal covers HPE’s Datacentre & Hybrid product portfolio.

Arrow is already a value-added distributor of HPE products and services in nine countries across EMEA. Through its resellers in the UK, Arrow will offer HPE’s Compute, Storage, Data Centre Networking and associated Pointnext Services, including the Nimble and SimpliVity technologies which were already on the books.

Dan Waters, director of solutions at Arrow ECS UK, said: “The addition of HPE’s portfolio brings a huge opportunity for Arrow and our channel customers. It fits seamlessly into our value-added model and the propositions of our reseller community.

“HPE’s portfolio further enables our customers to add incremental business across solution practices in business intelligence and analytics, data management, IoT and next-generation infrastructure technologies.”

Mark Armstrong, HPE UK&I vice president of channels and alliances, said: “By adding Arrow to our UK HPE distribution channel we are able to reach new customers looking to optimise their traditional IT infrastructure with secure, flexible solutions ready for the hybrid world.”

Arrow Electronics also recently became a strategic distribution partner for security vendor Symantec across the EMEA region.
