Arrow unveiled the first three of its new Microsoft hybrid cloud solution bundles today:

  • Commvault + Azure Backup: An easy-to-scale solution to move and manage workloads to the cloud; will lower costs by replacing tape and disk storage, streamlining multi-site protection and consolidating data centers. It also centralizes data protection to reduce risk.
  • Spanning Backup from Dell EMC + Microsoft Office 365: Spanning Backup for Office 365 automatically backs up Office 365 Email, Calendars and OneDrive for Business data daily. If data is deleted or damaged, you’ll be able to get it back right away—and get everyone right back to work.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication to Microsoft Azure: Offers speed of recovery and near-continuous data protection with built-in replication, along with recovery and e-discovery for Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and Active Directory, as well as transaction-level recovery of SQL databases.

Arrow will roll out additional Microsoft hybrid cloud solution bundles through 2016 and 2017, adding best-in-class suppliers such as Equinix, HPE, TrendMicro, Riverbed, NetApp, and their respective complementary products.

With these cross-vendor bundled solutions, Arrow fulfills a unique role in the cloud services market by aggregating cloud-build and -resale solutions from leading global vendors into one, easy-to-use platform: the global ArrowSphere marketplace. Value-added resellers and managed service providers can quickly quote, order, provision, and bill directly from ArrowSphere; they can also integrate a broad menu of Arrow value-add service wrappers to meet almost any end-customer need.

“Given Arrow’s commitment to offering best of breed solutions across Microsoft’s cloud offerings, we’re thrilled that Arrow selected Spanning Backup for Office 365 as part of its portfolio,” said Jeff Erramouspe, vice president and general manager of Spanning. “The collaboration is already off to a great start with nearly 20 joint customers coming online through Arrow’s ecosystem of VARs. Our commitment is to make it easy for Arrow’s partner network to sell Spanning solutions with the right level of service and support to sustain profitable growth.”
