Distribution giant Ingram Micro has further strengthened its cloud offering after a strategic partnership with Cobweb Solutions.
Under the deal, which kicks off on 1 June, Ingram, which last month announced its next-generation cloud platform, will work directly with the hosted Microsoft Exchange specialist to supply a range of enterprise cloud offerings to its SMB and mid-market customers.
Mark Davies, sales and marketing director at Cobweb, said the deal will widen its reach in the market: "Ingram Micro is a giant in the industry with an evolving cloud model.
"Having delivered hosted solutions for over a decade, and established ourselves as leaders in the field, we are delighted that Ingram has partnered with us. We know that VARs are looking to adapt to provide cloud and hybrid solutions in a way that gives them complete control and ownership of their customers and this is the core premise of our partner programme.
Apay Obang-Oyway, general manager of the Enterprise Software and Services Group at Ingram Micro, added: “Now is the ideal time for such a forward-thinking manufacturer as Cobweb Solutions to partner with Ingram Micro as our UK and global cloud business continues to gain momentum.
"Our global focus, following the worldwide expansion of the Ingram Micro Cloud organisation, only offers partners greater opportunity to develop, expand and accelerate their businesses.
“Supported by our global business and the capabilities of our dedicated UK team, Cobweb, along with the other vendor and reseller partners making up our cloud ecosystem, can leverage educational tools and capabilities combined with sales opportunities, keeping them in line with the upwards trajectory cloud adoption is taking around the world.”
