News : Arrow Electronics Signs Agreement With dinCloud
Los Angeles, CA December 10, 2013 -- dinCloud, a cloud services provider that offers business provisioning, announces it has entered into a distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics Inc., a global provider of products, services and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and enterprise computing solutions. The agreement allows Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions segment (Arrow ECS) to market, sell and support dinCloud’s hosted virtual desktops, hosted virtual servers and cloud storage services to its growing list of North American channel partners via the ArrowSphere online marketplace.
Additionally, Arrow will offer dinCloud’s newest product offering, webHVD. A true plug and play, powered by HTML5 in Google’s Chrome browser, webHVD is a clientless web application extension that runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux or Chromebook endpoints. It provides customers with a turnkey desktop, which they can provision and start using in a matter of minutes. With the addition of these solutions to ArrowSphere, Arrow can now offer a variety of new products and capabilities to its channel, enabling significant savings and providing a smarter alternative to on-premises infrastructure for customers of all sizes.
"We are always looking for strong alliances and relationships, and dinCloud’s channel-friendly model and solutions help us fill a growing gap in the cloud space," said Jim Livingston, vice president of North American services for Arrow’s ECS segment. "dinCloud’s hosted virtual desktops, including its new webHVD, hosted virtual servers and cloud-based storage offerings, offer a comprehensive solution for solution providers as they build and grow their services practices."
"ArrowSphere’s business services provide the essential tools for efficient, flexible and cost-effective service models that guide solution providers through an ever-evolving portfolio of best-in-class IT services and cloud sourcing models," said David Graffia, VP Sales, dinCloud. "The timing of this agreement is ideal with the recent launch of webHVD, which is built entirely on HTML5. Customers can now get to their secure and backed-up hosted virtual desktop simply from a Chrome browser. We are the only hosted virtual desktop provider offering this and now Arrow’s channel base is privy to that as well."
