IT distributor Avnet has announced it will now offer solutions from CenturyLink and IO.

The solutions to be provided are off-premise and colocation oriented and are meant to suit “data centre expansions, redundancy support and migrations,” the company said, and are accessible through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace.

“Our new co-location solutions combined with the strength of Avnet’s cloud and hybrid data center services will help partners quickly solve for common customer challenges in the cloud, including cost, performance and security,” Tim FitzGerald, vice president of Avnet’s Cloud Solutions business in the Americas.

The solutions are available to partners through either a referral model or a resale model.
