Technology products distributor Ingram Micro has partnered with Microsoft to launch a new, independent software division, dubbed CloudBlue, last Wednesday.
This platform enables the cloud service providers to automate, aggregate and monetise their own cloud and digital services as well as those from third parties.
Under the partnership, Microsoft Azure, a cloud computing service, will power the CloudBlue platform. Microsoft will also co-sell the platform to new service providers joining Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme.
Richard Dufty, senior vice-president of CloudBlue, said: “The cloud market has reached a tipping point and we are well-positioned to ensure businesses can benefit. We are removing barriers to entry to enable businesses to move quickly and access the growth promised by cloud technologies.”
“They need the right solution to automate and accelerate their cloud businesses. With Microsoft Azure powering our CloudBlue commerce platform, our customers will be able to scale faster and deliver to their customers the market leading technologies they need.”
