NEW ORLEANS, April 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE:SNX), a leading technology solutions distributor, is proud to announce that it has been named Commercial Distributor of the Year by Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions. The award is part of the annual Red Hat North America Partner Awards, which were announced during the 2016 Red Hat North America Partner Conference in New Orleans this week.
“SYNNEX is honored to be named Commercial Distributor of the Year by Red Hat, a vendor who continues to help us deliver leading solutions that support customers who are transitioning to the cloud or looking to improve their existing cloud offerings,” said Peter Larocque, President, North American Technology Solutions, SYNNEX Corporation. “Together, we are providing next-generation cloud solutions to the IT channel that help our customers differentiate their offerings in the rapidly changing marketplace.”
SYNNEX is honored for enabling exceptional sales growth of Red Hat solutions with 28 percent year-over-year growth overall across all customer categories and 37 percent growth among its value-added reseller base. The distributor is recognized for providing innovative open source solutions, including developing a “cloud in a box” bundled solution in conjunction with a leading hardware manufacturer to support Red Hat OpenStack and Ceph. Last year, SYNNEX made investments to its existing Red Hat solutions lab and worked with leading hardware manufacturers to build an additional lab to showcase Red Hat emerging technologies for customers. Recognizing the gap in the marketplace for cloud skills, SYNNEX added resources to assist customers through the entire sales cycle so they do not have to invest in new resources on their own. SYNNEX also added dedicated cloud specialists to drive Red Hat emerging technologies.
“SYNNEX is a valued channel partner to Red Hat, and we are pleased to honor them with this well-deserved award,” said Mark Enzweiler, Senior Vice President, Global Channel Sales and Alliances, Red Hat. “We look forward to our continued relationship with SYNNEX and helping them provide the best in open source solutions to their customers.”
