SanDisk Corp. and Avnet Inc. have revealed that Avnet will provide an extensive line of flash-based hardware and software solutions from SanDisk to its customers throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific and Latin America through its Avnet Electronics Marketing and Avnet Technology Solutions operating groups. According to the firms, the global distribution agreement enables SanDisk to leverage Avnet's global scale, scope and unique solutions distribution model, making it even easier for CIOs, IT leaders and manufacturing decision-makers to buy and implement SanDisk's solid-state storage and embedded flash memory solutions.

With this agreement, Avnet becomes one of the first global distributors for the rapidly growing SanDisk Commercial Business Channel, which offers client and enterprise-grade solid state drives (SSDs) and embedded flash computing products through channel partners. This enables Avnet to make available a variety of business and commercial solutions to its partners, including value-added resellers (VARs), embedded original equipment manufacturer (OEM) developers, system integrators (SIs), system builders (SBs) and direct market resellers (DMRs).

"Just as flash storage transformed the consumer electronics market, it is now delivering significant performance and cost-savings to businesses, including transforming both data center and client computing economics. Flash storage is also bringing unprecedented functionality to many industrial sector applications such as manufacturing equipment, medical instrumentation and automotive infotainment," said Henri Richard, SVP, worldwide commercial sales and support, SanDisk.

Starting today, products available through Avnet will include solid-state solutions to enhance data center performance (includes: Lightning and Optimus SAS Enterprise SSDs, CloudSpeed SATA Enterprise SSDs, Lightning PCIe Enterprise Solid State Accelerators, and FlashSoft server acceleration software from SanDisk); client SSDs to boost PC and notebook speed, responsiveness and boot-up times (includes SanDisk X210 SSD and the SanDisk X110 SSD in a variety of form factors); and SanDisk embedded flash storage solutions for commercial use in technology products from a wide range of industries, from automotive to manufacturing to communications.

SanDisk products purchased through Avnet can be combined with complementary products offered by Avnet to create complete business and commercial solutions for end customers. Avnet will also provide its partners with a wide range of education, resources, services and tools designed to help accelerate the profitable growth of their storage businesses.
