Distributor's Advanced Computing Division, Components Business Unit and Services Division Team With PSSC Labs to Offer Enterprise-Level Solutions and Integration Services to Channel Partners in the U.S.
SANTA ANA, CA, Jul 02, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --Leveraging its alliance with System ArchiTECHS member PSSC Labs and
synergies across multiple divisions, Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM)
today announced a new portfolio of customizable, enterprise-grade
high performance computing solutions and services.
Available now to channel partners in the U.S., the distributor's new
and exclusive line of Artizen High Performance Computing (HPC)
offerings include turnkey high performance servers, ultimate
workstations, and customizable supercomputing clusters, as well as
computing integration and software installation services.
Designed exclusively for Ingram Micro by PSSC Labs, the new HPC
solutions and complementary services will help channel partners more
effectively identify, compete and win additional business when it
comes to big data, datacenter and private cloud opportunities.
"Ingram Micro's new Artizen HPC offerings enable our channel partners
to meet the advanced computing needs of the marketplace without
having to invest in the added infrastructure, certifications and
personnel to support these higher-end technology solutions services,"
says Paul Bay, executive vice president, Ingram Micro North America.
"The investments we've made and continue to make in advanced
computing, cloud and enterprise services, combined with our new
alliance with PSSC Labs, are simplifying success for our channel
partners competing in this space, and will ultimately open up
additional higher-margin opportunities for Ingram Micro, our vendors
and solution providers throughout the U.S."
"As technology advances and the need for greater usage capacity
grows, demand for high performance computing is rising -- presenting
a multimillion dollar opportunity for system builders and VARs, but
also a new set of business challenges around organizational scale and
working capital," says Alex Lesser, vice president, sales and
marketing, PSSC Labs, a well-established and highly regarded national
service provider of HPC solutions located in Lake Forest, Calif.
"Having the support of Ingram Micro and PSSC Labs will give channel
partners the backing and go-to-market strength they need to compete
head-to-head in this market and provide clients greater business
value and more personalized service."
