Alternative Technology, the leading specialty distributor of access infrastructure and security solutions, announced that it has signed a value-added distribution agreement with VMware, Inc.
Under the agreement, Alternative Technology will distribute VMware’s data center, software lifecycle and enterprise desktop virtualization products through its network of resellers in the USA and Canada. VMware extends Alternative Technology’s current portfolio of access infrastructure and security products with the industry´s broadest range of server-based virtualization products.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to enter the virtualization space and to partner with VMware, the pioneer and leading manufacturer in virtualization today, said Bill Botti, president and chief operating officer, Alternative Technology. “Virtualization is transforming the desktop into a server-hosted environment that is always on, dynamically scalable and centrally secured and managed. We look forward to introducing VMware to our VAR community, arming them with solutions that increase their customers’ server utilization, performance, and security, while minimizing system downtime and reducing the cost and complexity of delivering enterprise services.”
This agreement follows recent Reader Choice awards by Redmond Magazine in the Desktop and Server Virtualization categories, and Network Computing’s 12th Annual Well-Connected award for the VMware GSX Server. VMware was also awarded VARBusiness’ 5-Star Rating for its Partner Program.
