TD SYNNEX Company Tech Data is using Pluribus Networks' Unified Cloud Fabric solution to accelerate the digital and network transformation journey for customers across the Asia Pacific region.

Tech Data head of business development for networking in the Asia Pacific and Japan, Anand Chakravarthy, says the region's data center market is slated to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% between 2022 and 2027 with investments of USD $94 billion by 2027.

“This partnership with Pluribus Networks is timely and perfectly complements our rich data centre infrastructure solutions portfolio,” he says.

“We are excited to introduce Pluribus Networks Unified Cloud Fabric solution and Netvisor ONE networking operating system, which we predict will be game-changers for our data center infrastructure customers and partners.

Tech Data says the benefits of the new partnership include:

  • Faster time to market and enriched data centre infrastructure offerings for all channel partners
  • Easy access to Puribus Networks' differentiated network solutions
  • Value-added services such as pre and post-sales support to partners and customers.

The Pluribus Unified Cloud Fabric solution is based on the principles of open networking.

Pluribus Networks says the SDN automated fabric reduces network operations tasks by orders of magnitude, strengthens data center security with microsegmentation and enables pervasive network visibility, all at the lowest total cost of ownership.

Pluribus Networks says its Linux-based Netvisor ONE operating system and the Unified Cloud Fabric software have been purpose-built to deliver radically automated and simplified cloud networking, along with superior economics by leveraging white box switches from open networking partners, as well as Pluribus own Freedom Series of switches.

The company says Unified Cloud Fabric is optimised to deliver a modern cloud network fabric across distributed clouds and data center sites with rich services, automated operations, intrinsic security and visibility and no single point of failure.

Pluribus Networks' head of APAC sales Nitin Acharekar is pleased about teaming up with Tech Data.

“We are delighted to welcome Tech Data to the Pluribus Partners First Program as a distributor and to tap into Tech Datas vast reach across the Asia Pacific - Japan regions Channel Partner Community, while also complementing their existing solutions portfolio,” he says.
