Arrow ECS ANZ: A Microsoft cloud solution provider

Microsoft CSP

Arrow has partnered with Microsoft to offer its partners the opportunity to deliver one of the most popular and effective cloud solution portfolios to their customers, while taking advantage of the support services that Arrow provides to ensure its partners’ success and profitability.

 

What is the Microsoft CSP program?

Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider program offers partners two options to participate in the program:

Direct

Microsoft

Indirect

The direct model is best suited to partners who already have the resources, skills and expertise to deliver Microsoft’s cloud solutions successfully and profitably. If you are set up to deliver customer support, or have your own transaction portal or your own IP, then you are best suited to Microsoft’s direct CSP model.

Partners who need support with Microsoft can engage with an indirect partner, such as Arrow, to enable them to:

  • Ramp up their cloud offering quickly
  • Focus their investment on areas that make sense to their business
  • Evolve their business model
  • Take advantage of the services provided by Arrow
As an indirect CSP partner, Arrow enables its partners to sell Microsoft cloud solutions:

Arrow CSP Partner Microsoft Cloud Solutions

Cloud security

Arrow is one of ANZ’s leading IT distributors with strong expertise and deep history in security, including cloud security. The elasticity of cloud allows companies to future-proof their security requirements without having to invest upfront in over-provisioned applications.

ArrowSphere has a wide range of security products, including service provider licensing to build security into your cloud platform or prebuilt cloud applications ready to implement in minutes. Leverage the automation of our platform to build solutions for web, email and endpoint security, to name a few. Arrow is well-placed to support existing and prospective Microsoft partners to offer all aspects of the cloud security puzzle.

Compute and storage

Cloud computing offers Arrow partners access to on-demand, scalable computing resources with the added benefit of only paying for resources that are used. You no longer have to guess or predict consumption in advance to configure infrastructure computing and storage resources needed to support applications and workloads in the cloud.

Arrow’s compute and storage offerings provide you with greater control, higher availability, better security and improved management. Our virtual computing and storage resource on the cloud gives you on-demand services for as long as you need them.

Disaster recovery and back-up

Managing data is the lifeblood of every organisation, but before it can become an asset it must be efficiently protected and archived. Arrow's cloud-based disaster recovery and back-up services provide enterprise-grade protection, back-up, storage and archiving solutions while providing essential scalability, efficiency and flexibility to manage data.

Arrow cloud services enable back-up services onsite and in parallel to an offsite location. Depending on the application, it can be as simple as logging into the back-up application and pointing your back-up at the cloud. Our services help you store and recover your data while keeping it safe in a cloud environment, allowing you to maintain compliance requirements and avoid costly business interruptions.

Collaborative communications

Online collaboration reduces travel costs and time, and increases overall productivity. Users can run online meetings, sales lead webinars and training sessions to audiences across the country and internationally.

Improve communications while driving down costs with solutionsm such as hosted exchange and unified communications, available as cloud services through Arrow.
