Arrow Electronics announces strategic agreement with HiveIO to expand the hyperconverged fabric market in UK

London – 17 September 2018 – Arrow Electronics announced today that it has entered into a strategic agreement with HiveIO Inc in UK. Arrow Electronics will be the key distributor for HiveIO Inc. in the UK and offer its channel customers the industry’s first hyperconverged fabric solution – Hive Fabric.

As a leading technology enablement company that brings innovative IT solutions to market to solve complex business challenges, Arrow adds HiveIO to its broad portfolio of best-of-breed solutions that are designed to help businesses grow faster, operate efficiently and transform in a dynamic market. Current IT architecture requires highly skilled specialists with a range of certifications to manage the data centre. Offering all the components of a hyperconverged solution, Hive Fabric addresses the performance, scale, and security that enterprises demand while eliminating complex licensing and multi-vendor integration and management that come with traditional hyperconverged infrastructure. HiveIO delivers next-generation technology replacing the entire stack with the only zero-layer, hardware and vendor agnostic architecture on the market.

Hive Fabric offers significant value to our customers and will enable them to build a powerful data centre. We are confident that we will increase hyperconverged fabric adoption amongst our customers”, said Mark McHale, vice president UK & Ireland of Arrow`s enterprise computing solutions business.
