CRN Roundtable: Grabbing the converged virtualisation opportunity

clock

In this exclusive roundtable sponsored by Avnet, our expert panel looks at how resellers can make the most of this growing market

As the tough economic climate continues, end users are increasingly looking towards virtualisation to help reduce both capex and opex.

So where are the opportunities for the channel? How do you get involved? And what are vendors/distributors doing to help resellers grab a slice of this lucrative market?

CRN editor Sara Yirrell gets to the root of the issues with a panel comprising Wayne Gratton, director of SolutionsPath at Avnet Technology Solutions; Maurice Martin, server and tools business group lead at Microsoft; Rete Rawden, UK and Ireland partner director at NetApp; Matt Reeve, managing director of Modern Networks and Andy Eccles, CTO at Kelway.
