Tech Data Delivers New Managed Cloud Solution with Macquarie Cloud Services

Providing a new wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platform for Australian channel partners.

SYDNEY, Australia – 2nd November, 2020 – Tech Data today announced the launch of Cloud by Tech Data, a new wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platform for its Australian channel partners.

Cloud by Tech Data provides a variety of capabilities, including disaster recovery, data backup, data centre expansion and scale-out storage, all aimed at meeting the evolving needs of the technology market. It also provides partners with the ability to deliver a bespoke cloud platform to their customers without the need to establish and operate the underlying infrastructure.

Partners now have an easier way to enter or penetrate the private cloud market by alleviating the need to capitalise on deploying their own infrastructure. This allows partners to focus less on the underlying infrastructure and more on value-add applications and services which sit on top. At the same time, partners can run their own managed services practice.

“Cloud by Tech Data allows us to offer a robust cloud infrastructure that can be tailored to match the requirements of partners as well as customers across a broad range of industry sectors” says Tech Data VP Country General Manager for ANZ, Andy Berry.

Macquarie Cloud Services Head of Sales & Marketing, Ricci Danieletto explains “Macquarie Cloud Services is excited to announce this strategic partnership alongside Tech Data & Dell Technologies. Cloud by Tech Data bonds Vendor Technology Solutions from Dell Technologies, with Cloud execution in owned Datacentre infrastructure by Macquarie Cloud Services, thereafter provisioned and managed by Tech Data. The deliverables resultant from this consortium will deliver cost-effective and class leading services to Tech Data’s partner ecosystem.” Ricci continues “The Tech Data solution has been built on Dell Compute & Dell Storage platforms, we look very much forward to replicating this architecture, and its resultant success.”

Cloud by Tech Data has been created as a result of leveraging Dell Technologies Cloud Partner Connect program. The initiative enables Solution Provider partners to expand their offerings to include leading cloud services for their customers with minimal investment.

“As organisations focus on the acceleration of their digital transformation and are adding new cloud environments to their overall IT estate, the need for consistent operations and infrastructure across clouds is paramount,” said Angela Fox, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Dell Technologies, Australia and New Zealand. “This is an example of how companies can accelerate their cloud strategies by delivering a simplified IT experience. Cloud by Tech Data leverages Dell Technologies Cloud Partner Connect program to provide resellers an alternative portfolio of cloud offerings to sell.”
For further details on the new Cloud by Tech Data platform, partners can register to join the official launch webinar being staged on 25th November from 11am – 11:45am AEDT. More details on the webinar can be found at https://info.techdatacloud.com.au/cloud-x-tech_data_25_november
