Contract win

Tech Data Corporation has announced that its Technology Solutions business, formerly a division of Avnet, has extended its distribution agreement with Docker, to deliver their Enterprise Edition (EE) offering across a wider European footprint.

“Containerization is a fast-growing technology and we see a good opportunity with Docker to provide more of our customers with the competitive edge they need to stay ahead,” said Jason Boxall, vice president, Strategic Vendors & International Channels, EMEA at Tech Data. “Tech Data is already an established leader in data center solutions and can provide an optimum platform for Docker’s technology to transform more businesses across Europe. In turn, Docker will benefit from our extensive partner network as we work together to help drive adoption and integration with a range of technologies in various enterprise environments.”

Tech Data will also distribute all editions of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) subscriptions: Basic, Standard and Advanced. This agreement will help to drive innovation in the cloud and leverage existing knowledge to create optimal data center environments.

Docker Enterprise Edition provides organisations with an enterprise-ready management solution that allows developers to ship applications from development to production 13 times faster, while giving operations teams the ability to seamlessly migrate these workloads to the cloud.
