“Pivot3 provides a packaged VMware View solution which simplifies and eliminates the complexities and costs generally associated with deploying a VDI environment,” said Mike Holt, director of channels and strategic alliances at Pivot3. “Together with Avnet’s strong VMware reseller network, we look forward to providing these new regions with a compelling VDI proposition that is quick and simple to deploy and also minimizes a customer's upfront capital investment needs.”

In support of the partnership, Pivot3 has a VDI Channel Ready program consisting of many unique elements designed to maximize lead opportunity and qualification for Avnet resellers and solution providers in EMEA. There are unique online tools for VDI self-configuration and ROI analysis. Additionally, prospects can “Test Drive” a live, hosted 300 to 400 desktop scenario complete with workload simulation, login storms, scale-out of desktops and performance reporting. The Channel Ready program is also designed to enhance sell-through with all VMware and Microsoft license revenues flowing to the resellers. In addition, deal registration is available to partners.
