PeakColo announces its distributor relationship with Avnet Technology Solutions, a global IT solutions distribution leader.  By leveraging key relationships with top distributors in the technology sector such as Avnet in its Americas region, Peak expands the availability of its award-winning cloud services platform to Value Added Resellers (VARs) nationwide.

Peak delivers on-demand compute, storage and network resources, which channel partners utilize to offer cloud-enabled solutions such as private and hybrid cloud, disaster recovery, backup, and storage in the cloud. Peak’s cloud nodes, stretching coast to coast as well as in the UK, are accessed via layer two direct connections, further improving reliability, speed, and ease of deployment.

Avnet’s first cloud service powered by Peak is based on NetApp® Private Storage for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is available as an on-demand solution.  The Avnet CloudAttach Shared offering provides enterprises the ability to consume storage via an OPEX model leveraging Peak’s significant cloud storage infrastructure.
