Westcon-Comstor, the international technology distributor, and HashiCorp have announced the signing of a distribution agreement covering New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand. HashiCorp is a leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software, helping organisations move to the public cloud faster, while optimising their cloud strategy and modernising their current infrastructure.
The agreement is HashiCorp’s first multi-country distribution partnership in the Asia region. It further strengthens Westcon-Comstor’s DevOps strategy as HashiCorp tools enable businesses to unlock the cloud operating model and increase the success of their digital transformation strategies.
DevOps has become synonymous with moving to the cloud, managing hybrid infrastructure and developing applications, and HashiCorp enables users to deliver applications faster by helping transition from manual processes and ITIL practices to self-service automation and DevOps practices.
Patrick Aronson, Executive Vice President of Westcon APAC, said: “Adding HashiCorp to our technology portfolio is an exciting and critical milestone for Westcon, as we drive to execute our cloud channel strategy based on offering DevOps and cloud security solution bundles to our partners across APAC. Organisations of all sizes trust HashiCorp tools to provision, secure, run and connect any application running in the public cloud.” Aronson went on to point out that “HashiCorp already partners with many of Westcon’s top technology and solutions vendors including AWS, Cisco, F5, Microsoft Azure, Palo Alto Networks, Splunk, Check Point and Sumo Logic, to name a few.”
“We are excited to partner with a company with Westcon’s experience in cloud transformation and look forward to working with their broad ecosystem of partners to deliver joint value to our customers. With Westcon’s commitment to innovation and shaping the future of IT distribution, we are confident that together we will excel at delivering results to organisations leveraging HashiCorp’s suite of products,” said Michelle Graff, Global Partner Chief at HashiCorp.
“As a global leader in infrastructure automation, HashiCorp is observing strong interest for enterprise subscriptions within both South East Asia and New Zealand. To better scale our business in these markets, we recognised the opportunity to embrace local partner relationships and also the need to strengthen our indirect routes to market,” said David Carless, Vice President, Asia Pacific & Japan at HashiCorp.
