SYNNEX Corporation Signs Distribution Agreement to Advance Docker’s Container Technology to its North American IT Channel

DALLAS, April 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (from SYNNEX’ Red, White & You Public Sector Conference) – SYNNEX Corporation, a leading Technology Solutions distributor, has signed a North American distribution agreement with Docker, Inc., the organization behind the open platform for distributed applications. As demand shifts in the public sector market to build out environments for more agile application lifecycles, the need for Docker’s container technology has risen. SYNNEX is introducing Docker into its deep public sector and commercial network of resellers.

Docker provides an integrated platform that enables development and IT operations teams to build, ship, and run distributed applications anywhere. The most common uses for Docker are Containers-as-a Service (CaaS), hybrid cloud, continuous integration and continuous deployment, DevOps, big data analytics and infrastructure optimization. Docker is portable across the entire application lifecycle and across any infrastructure from a developers’ laptop to a VM-based data center to any public cloud provider.

“Docker is leading container technology,” said Eddie Franklin, Vice President, Sales, Public Sector & Vertical Markets, SYNNEX Corporation. “Bringing them on board opens up new opportunities for SYNNEX’s public sector and commercial VARs to ultimately serve their customers better with the ability to continually develop and enhance their applications without interrupting service, thus delivering a seamless, constant user experience.”

“More and more, we are seeing government agencies list Docker as a requirement in their RFPs as they move towards cloud-based applications to cut down on capital expenses while using the latest technologies to run their organizations,” said Srinivas Chennamaraja, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Akira Technologies, Inc. “SYNNEX is a well-known leader in the public sector space with multiple resources to help resellers win contracts. Docker chose well to have SYNNEX bring their breakthrough technology to market through its extensive reseller ecosystem to Federal and State & Local government organizations.”

Qualified resellers interested in sourcing Docker through SYNNEX should email docker@synnex.com.
