Ingram Micro has been appointed to distribute Eaton's full portfolio of power management appliances and services in Australia.

While the Australian distributor's broad market reach is at the forefront of the contract, Eaton claims the companies share operational synergies.

Eaton Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) power quality general manager, Michael Mallia, said the vendor's VMware and Microsoft virtualisation platform integration and Cisco and EMC converged infrastructure integration will lead to accelerated deployment for Ingram Micro's partners.

According to Ingram Micro advanced solutions group senior director, David Lenz, the distributor opted for Eaton for its channel approach.

Eaton will support Ingram Micro with dedicated account management for pre- and post-sales engineering, training, inventory and technical support. The distributor's partners will also have access to Eaton's training and certification program.
