BROOMFIELD, Colo., Sept. 10, 2020 — Liqid, a composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) platform provider, announced today a new agreement with Arrow Electronics to distribute Liqid’s line of composable infrastructure solutions and services to Arrow’s large network of channel partners.
The addition of Liqid’s CDI platform to Arrow’s portfolio delivers its network of value-added resellers (VARs) a cost-effective way to disaggregate and pool data center resources at large scale via software, across all industry-standard fabrics, for dynamically configurable, bare-metal servers. For IT users developing and deploying next-gen applications in artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI+ML), 5G/edge, high-performance computing (HPC), densely virtualized environments, and data-intensive digital media workloads, Liqid offers resource efficiency and data performance.
With composable infrastructure solutions from Liqid, IT users can:
- Accelerate Time-to-Value: Dynamically configure servers in seconds to meet exacting workload requirements. Create configurations that aggregate the power of dozens of GPUs and other accelerators as required.
- Improve IT Agility: Scale resources like compute, networking, NVMe storage, GPU, FPGA, and storage-class memory beyond a server’s physical limitations, across all indusrtry-standard fabrics, with just a couple of clicks; when data center devices are no longer needed, they are released back to the pool to be used by other applications. Leverage Liqid Command Center’s RESTful API and integrations with popular tools like Ansible to automate the provisioning of bare‐metal resources.
- Increase Efficiency: Only purchase resources when they’re needed. Extend the life cycle of existing IT server investments. Better manage costs associated with data center footprint with greater infrastructure utilization.
“Arrow’s range of expertise, product and solutions, and technology services makes them a perfect collaborator to bring Liqid’s CDI solutions to VARs seeking to better utilize a wide variety of technologies,” said Nader Soudah, Vice President, Channel, Liqid. “The relationship gives Liqid the opportunity to meet our global technology alliance partners in the channel, enabling our customers to combine solutions from the larger Arrow portfolio to realize the a greater possible data center efficiency.”
