Arrow Electronics and Cycloid EMEA deal delivers DevOps capabilities to channel partners
Paris, April 2022 - Global technology provider Arrow Electronics has signed a pan-European agreement with DevOps and hybrid cloud specialist Cycloid, adding its entire portfolio to ArrowSphere, Arrow‘s cloud management platform.
Cycloid has been fast-tracked onto ArrowSphere to enable channel partners to democratize DevOps and hybrid/multi-cloud adoption at scale. Its solutions provide centralized governance, deployment and management of the day-to-day operations to improve the developer experience and the efficiency of the operations in a context of hybrid and multi-cloud journey through a single dashboard. It is designed to eliminate need to recruit specialist skillsets which are in short supply.
Cycloid tools provide the collaboration needed to reduce the time-to-market for new products and features, increasing margins for channel partners, while helping unlock cost savings offered by cloud platforms.
Patrice Roussel, vice president of cloud for Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business in EMEA, said, “DevOps has traditionally been the domain of the larger channel partners, such as the big system integrators, which has resulted in lost opportunities for the small and mid-sized resellers and managed service providers. We believe our collaboration with Cycloid will deliver a solutions portfolio that overcomes many of the complexities associated with DevOps and hybrid cloud, delivering speed of deployment, reliability, and the ability to scale at pace.“
Benjamin Brial, founder, Cycloid, said, “The combination of ArrowSphere and Cycloid will provide an end-to-end portal to help answer the need of DevOps, FinOps and multi and hybrid Cloud. If channel partners want to answer the needs of their customers when it comes to DevOps and hybrid cloud but they don’t know how they should start or feel that they lose efficiency in the process, Cycloid has the solution.”
The ArrowSphere platform helps channel partners to manage, differentiate and scale their cloud business. Its marketplace includes all the leading hyperscale providers, as well as public and private IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and cloud software offerings. The platform provides end-to-end cloud lifecycle management with features like automated provisioning, comprehensive billing integration, reporting and predictive analytics. ArrowSphere also offers integrated DevOps and customizable storefronts that enable end customers to manage their own transactions.
