Technology distributor adds Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and AWS Storage Gateway to growing cloud services portfolio

SANTA ANA, Calif., June 5 — The North America Services Division of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) today announced the addition of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to its Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.

Available immediately to Ingram Micro channel partners in the U.S., the new offerings include Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), a reliable, scalable, fast and inexpensive storage offering for businesses interested in storing and retrieving any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the Web, as well as AWS Storage Gateway, a service that provides seamless and secure integration between an organization's on-premises IT environment and Amazon Web Services storage infrastructure.

"Amazon S3 and AWS Storage Gateway mark some of the first on-demand storage offerings available on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace," says Renee Bergeron, vice president of Managed Services and Cloud Computing, Ingram Micro North America. "For Ingram Micro channel partners, these two services form linchpins in creating robust cloud service solutions."

Other AWS products, such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), will be made available to Ingram Micro channel partners throughout the summer and fall of 2012.

"Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that channel partners can use to support the business needs of large enterprises, small and medium size businesses and startup customers around the world," said Terry Wise, director of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS. "With a variety of on-demand, pay as you go services, AWS is providing channel partners key infrastructure services to build and deliver solutions faster and at a lower cost to their customers. Working with Ingram Micro will expand our reach into the IT channel and enable us to better engage and further educate the MSP and VAR community about the benefits AWS provides."

"Ingram Micro and AWS are industry leaders in the cloud services marketplace and this distribution alliance marks a strategic milestone in the maturation and growth of the cloud computing within the IT channel," continues Bergeron. "The AWS portfolio will bring tremendous opportunity and additional business value to our channel partners by enabling them to expand the depth of their cloud service offerings and deliver the promise and reliability of cloud computing to their customers in a more cost-effective and scalable manner."
