Pax8 helps fix ‘broken’ distribution for the cloud
As technology evolves into cloud solutions, legacy distribution is failing to deliver effectively for cloud solutions and more modern distribution needs. Companies have had bad experiences buying cloud products from traditional distributors because of the brokenness of the systems in place, which were not built for the cloud. So what are the solutions?
“The traditional distribution game was on-premise technology: hardware, printers, software to install, ship it … pick, pack, and ship,” said Ryan Walsh (pictured), co-founder and chief channel officer of Pax8, Inc. “Now fast forward to a cloud game, and you’d say, ‘Well, do you need distribution?’ ”
Walsh spoke with John Furrier (@furrier), host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile livestreaming studio, during the Acronis Global Cyber Summit event in Miami Beach, Florida. They discussed distribution in a cloud world (see the full interview with transcript here). (* Disclosure below.)
