Terms of the alliance will see the distribution giant gain access to the vendor’s end-to-end portfolio, spanning back-up and recovery, business continuity, software-defined storage and information governance.

Meanwhile, Ingram Micro recently signed a distribution agreement with AWS in Hong Kong and Macau, as part of plans to roll out cloud solutions through the channel.
