Tech Data expands Docker rights in Europe

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 4 July 2017

Distribution giant Tech Data’s 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. The extended footprint includes Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, as well as the East region countries where it operates, including Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey, and the Adriatic region.

The rollout is being done in a phased approach, which started with Switzerland in March and Spain and Portugal in April. Additional countries will be rolled out over the coming months. This partnership further strengthens Tech Data’s footprint in the datacentre market and provides partners with the ability to take a holistic approach to application and software development, deliver agility and flexibility to IT operations, and drive down operational costs, according to the distributor.

Jason Boxall, VP strategic vendors and international channels EMEA at Tech Data, said: “Containerisation 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.”

“Tech Data is already an established leader in datacentre 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 distribute Docker EE, an integrated platform for developers and IT teams to collaborate, bringing improved security, policy and controls to the application lifecycle without sacrificing agility or application portability. Tech Data will also distribute all editions of Docker EE subscriptions: basic, standard and advanced.
