Tintri and Avnet Technology Solutions Announce Agreement for the ANZ market

Agreement Will Enable Delivery of Tintri Products, System Integration and Cloud Services in Australia and New Zealand

SYDNEY, Australia – October 8, 2014 – Tintri, the leading producer of smart application-aware storage for virtualisation and cloud environments, today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT).  Under the terms of the agreement, Avnet will market, distribute, and provide sales and product support for Tintri products to customers in Australia and New Zealand. The partnership will also enable Avnet to deliver system integration and cloud services based on Tintri products, to customers and partners in the region.

“The partnership with Tintri has great potential for both companies,” said Darren Adams, vice president and general manager of Avnet Technology Solutions, Australia and New Zealand. “Currently we have a world class stable of storage suppliers, and the Tintri solution will make a welcome addition to our portfolio.  Also, we will focus the Tintri solution toward our Avnet cloud service offerings and in particular we will offer white labeled cloud and managed services through our comprehensive network of systems integrators, value added resellers and independent software vendors across the ANZ landscape.  These are exciting times in the market, and combining with Tintri will allow our partners to be at the forefront of key storage technologies.”  

“ANZ has led the market in virtualising data centres, and now it’s part of the vanguard driving IT as-a-service,” said Peter Molloy, vice president of Tintri for Asia Pacific. “In such a highly virtualised and automated IT landscape, storage that attempts to hide rather than eradicate the shortcomings of traditional storage will invariably fall short of the expectations of end users and service providers.  The old storage management constructs of LUNs and volumes drive higher unit cost and complexity. It's an architecture 20 years overdue for a shakeup, and we are delighted that Avnet has decided to partner with Tintri.

“Avnet’s reach across Asia Pacific was an unquestionable benefit to the partnership. Having a master agreement under which we can fold other countries in line with our channel expansion strategy is a clear advantage to both parties and puts Tintri in a great position to build a solid basis for long term growth in Asia Pacific,” said Molloy.
