Tech Data widens its portfolio with the Virtual Datacenter from Green, thus offering its first Swiss cloud solution

The Virtual Datacenter from Green, with data locations in the canton of Aargau and in Zurich, is now a part of the cloud portfolio of Tech Data Switzerland. The offering provides benefits for resellers with small and medium-sized company clients in particular.

Tech Data Switzerland is integrating the Virtual Datacenter from Green into its extensive cloud ecosystem StreamOne. The Virtual Datacenter is an infrastructure as a service solution and Tech Data’s first with Switzerland as the data location. As part of the new cooperation, Tech Data is responsible for consulting, procurement and billing, whereas Green operates the platform, provides the technical support and carries out development work.

For Tech Data, the expansion of the portfolio is a key element of the multi-cloud strategy. “Previously, we were lacking a Swiss solution that is tailored to the needs of new cloud users,” explains Gabriele Meinhard, Managing Director of Tech Data, who added, “With the Virtual Datacenter from, we can offer a high-performance cloud solution that grows in line with the resellers and their requirements.” The distributor primarily sees potential in connection with resellers with small and medium-sized company clients.

The Virtual Datacenter is suitable for individual applications as well as more complex IT architectures that are spread across several locations. provides processor power, RAM and data memory space, as well as network, firewall and database functions. Clients have a choice of up to two locations, and they will be charged on the basis of their daily usage. The pricing model is based on just a few straightforward factors, thus allowing resellers to easily package their services using the virtual infrastructure.

“Both partners will contribute their particular strengths to the cooperation: Tech Data’s client base and its experience in the solution business coupled with Green’s excellent cloud platform. Together, we want to promote the cloud adaption amongst the resellers, both in line with the market and focused on Swiss end clients,” explains Frank Boller, CEO of AG.

On March 21, 2019, the two companies will provide interested resellers with information about the cloud platform and will give exclusive insight into one of the Green data centers.
