FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ZPE Systems Inc., a leader in network infrastructure management and orchestration solutions, today announced a partnership with TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX), a leading global distributor and solutions aggregator for IT ecosystems. This agreement gives partners access to ZPE’s Intel-based Gen 3 out-of-band serial consoles & modular services router gateways, to serve large enterprises and MSPs with a platform for third party applications and end-to-end automation for datacenter & branch edge deployments.
Legacy fixed-function devices do not meet modern requirements for scaling, automating, and securing enterprise networks, due to interoperability issues and closed architectures. As customers struggle against security and downtime-inducing network challenges, this partnership will enable them to deploy ZPE’s platform to address disaster recovery, human error, and ransomware, using their choice of best-of-breed vendor solutions. ZPE’s cloud managed Linux-based Nodegrid® is an open platform of programmable hardware and software that extends the capabilities of infrastructure, connectivity, and cybersecurity teams.
“Cyber and physical systems are increasingly connected,” said Reyna Thompson, Senior Vice President, Product Management at TD SYNNEX. “This means organizations across all verticals are now calling for a networking platform that enables them to mix and match the solutions that work best for their use case. This partnership strengthens our portfolio. Customers can now deploy ZPE’s platform to integrate the physical and virtual solutions they need, to make their networks secure, reliable, and easy to use.”
The Linux-based Nodegrid OS, which runs on every Nodegrid Serial Console and Services Router device, enables multi-vendor freedom in IT. This allows infrastructure, connectivity, and cybersecurity teams to deploy and manage their choice of hardware, software, and SaaS solutions — from cooling and smart PDUs, to switches and servers, to NGFWs, SD-WAN and SASE integrations. The Nodegrid platform integrates with new and existing infrastructure, providing secure out-of-band access, NetDevOps automation capabilities, and enterprise-grade security that address modern business demands.
“Teaming up with TD SYNNEX is a huge value add to ZPE Systems’ Edge Transformation Partner Program,” said Steven Jehring, Vice President, Global Sales, ZPE Systems. “This gives partners greater financing options, while customers get more freedom to choose a partner that’s right for them. TD SYNNEX’s world-class support, pre-sales services, and global fulfillment capabilities will be instrumental in accelerating partner sales and transforming customer networks at the data center and edge.”
