TD SYNNEX SNX recently announced that under the Strategic Collaboration Agreement (“SCA”) with Amazon AMZN subsidiary, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), it will distribute AWS solution — Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance — to its partner businesses.
Per the agreement, TD SYNNEX will globally integrate Amazon’s AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance to provide deployment and migration services to its partner base, which includes small and medium-sized businesses, public sector organizations, and individual software vendors.
Part of the SCA, which TD SYNNEX entered in January this year, this deal will ensure customer data transformation from on-premise storage like branch offices, research and development departmental workgroups, laboratory and industrial sites to unlimited cloud-native storage. Amazon's AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance is a physical, standalone, validated server configuration for on-premises deployments. It comes pre-loaded with Storage Gateway software and provides all the required central processing unit, memory, network, and solid-state drive cache resources for creating and configuring file gateway, volume gateway, or tape gateway.
In addition to the transformation of existing applications, customers will receive other AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance associated services through their preferred channel partner. The customers will further avail of TD SYNNEX Global Lifecycle Management services to implement and launch critical lifecycle management services that simplify and streamline business operations.

The AWS Storage Gateway Hardware Appliance, which is managed from the AWS Console, will be available as a Click-to-Run solution. It is likely to accelerate innovation across data, analytics, the Internet of Things (“IoT”), and security spaces for the TD SYNNEX partners. It will help the partners achieve their targeted goals while reducing operating costs and raising performance levels and security standards. Alternatively, it will let the end customers enjoy a robust hybrid architecture that is easier to purchase than what their existing on-premise applications require, that too from a partner of their choice.
Amazon’s AWS offers more than 200 fully-featured services from data centers globally. Its features range from infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, and databases to emerging technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, data lakes and analytics, and the IoT. AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and widely adopted cloud platform, utilized by millions of customers.
