TD SYNNEX has announced a plan to distribute Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance, a physical, standalone, validated server configuration for on-premises deployments. TD SYNNEX is serving as a global integrator for AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance, as well as providing deployment and migration services to move customers' data from on-premise storage to the cloud. This global distribution arrangement allows customers to procure AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance and associated services through their preferred channel partner and bundle the hardware appliance along with TD SYNNEXGlobal Lifecycle Management (GLM) services, which simplify and streamline business processes and operations.
TD SYNNEX is offering the solution through its extensive partner network in an effort to open up purchasing options to the channel. Frequently, branch offices, research and development departmental workgroups, and laboratory or industrial sites lack the on-premises infrastructure to run a virtual machine appliance, hypervisors, server clusters, and networked storage systems. Building and managing this infrastructure, or waiting for a future budgeting cycle to begin work or scale operations, may not make sense or be in the best interest of the organization. AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance can be rapidly set up in these on-premises environments, providing local applications access to virtually unlimited cloud storage for a wide variety of use cases.
It comes pre-loaded with AWS Storage Gateway software, and provides all the required central processing unit (CPU), memory, network, and solid state drive (SSD) cache resources for creating and configuring file gateway, volume gateway, or tape gateway. AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance is designed to provide customers with a simple out of the box experience that does not require any additional infrastructure, and supports standard storage protocols.
