Avnet Technology Solutions has launched a new practice - VirtualPath - in Malaysia to provide its partners with enablement and educational resources as well as knowledge of HP technologies, said the IT solutions distributor.

"Our VirtualPath solutions practice will enable our HP resellers with the skills they require to be successful in crafting and developing solutions that address business and IT challenges," said Avnet Technology Solutions country general manager, Malaysia, Chiew Yue Lam. With Avnet's success of virtualisation practice in the U.S. and India, I am confident that this programme will benefit our valued resellers and accelerate their capabilities to pursue IT virtualisation opportunities in Malaysia."

Chiew said that HP and Avnet have worked together globally for more than 30 years to create solutions for HP resellers. "As a value-added solutions distributor, Avnet Technology Solutions is continuously adding value to the channel through actively engaging with the channel ecosystem and aligning business partner programs with the technology strategies of suppliers."

"Partners in Malaysia are under increasing pressure to provide the latest technology solutions and services to help customers respond to changing business requirements," said Hewlett-Packard (HP) Malaysia's general manager, enterprise group, Thiyagu Letchumanan. "Through solutions such as VirtualPath, HP helps businesses to facilitate their move to private and hybrid clouds with its leading virtualisation portfolio, which is built on HP Converged Infrastructure technology. Together with Avnet's extensive partner network, HP is able to provide partners with opportunities to expand their businesses by delivering virtualisation services and solutions easily and confidently."

The Avnet VirtualPath University is part of a global Avnet SolutionsPath partner programme designed to help partners develop solid solutions strategies, along with strategic marketing plans that accelerate their profitability, market share and business growth jointly with Avnet.
