Following a distribution agreement with GTT, Arrow Electronics is now able to offer cloud-based WAN connectivity under a single SLA.
GTT has more than 100 PoPs in data centres in Europe and more than 300 globally.
Its EtherCloud WAN services have been designed to allow customers to access numerous cloud service providers globally, including last-mile connectivity.
The company adds that its cloud networking services can be tailored to public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
Using GTT’s services, Arrow will be able to offer its EMEA reseller customers WAN connectivity as part of its cloud solutions under a single end-customer service contract. In the past, the firm says this business was usually based on contracts with several local telecom providers.
“Direct links to cloud service providers via secure, private backbone infrastructures based on agreed SLAs are an increasingly important option for global corporate network connections,” says Patrice Roussel, VP of strategic alliances, Arrow ECS EMEA.
GTT adds that Arrow’s channel partners are now in a position to integrate its global network and Tier 1 IP backbone as components of their cloud solutions for their end customers, thereby offering “added” value.
Arrow Electronics is a global provider of products and services to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and enterprise computing solutions.
