Tech Data US Will Exclusively Distribute Parallels Virtuozzo Containers

Leading IT products distributor Tech Data and Parallels today announced an exclusive distribution agreement for the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers server virtualization solution. Available to value-added resellers through distribution for the first time, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers will further strengthen Tech Data’s AIS Division’s virtualization solutions offering.


“Parallels Virtuozzo Containers takes a different approach to server virtualization than many of the other solutions available in the channel, and by doing, so offers enterprises large and small a unique set of advantages, such as better per-server density and superior performance,” said Bill Portin, vice president of North American sales and operations, Parallels. “This makes Parallels Virtuozzo Containers an ideal solution for VARs deploying data center-scale virtualization or for those deploying virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions. Working with Tech Data’s AIS Division, Parallels will ensure our VAR partners have access to the support, expertise and information they need to profitably deploy Parallels Virtuozzo Containers.”

VARs can leverage Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to enhance and deploy a wide range of IT solutions, including:

  • Server and Operating System Consolidation
  • Business Continuity
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
  • Workload Management
  • Application Hosting for SaaS (Software as a Service) Deployments

Server virtualization is clearly an emerging technology that offers VARs tremendous opportunities to grow their revenue and deliver more robust data center solutions,” said Amy Belcher, Tech Datas director, Product Marketing, Advanced Infrastructure Solutions. “But as quickly as virtualization is reshaping the IT strategies of large enterprises and small businesses, the server virtualization landscape is rapidly evolving with new and creative solutions like Parallels Virtuozzo Containers. The AIS Division and its team of virtualization experts are on hand to help VARs understand the latest offerings and to choose the solutions that best meet the needs of their customers.
