Podcast: Red Hat Partner Conference and Avnet’s Global Solutions Center

The ChannelBuzz.ca Podcast returns, coming to you live (via tape) from Orlando, Florida, where open source software giant Red Hat this week held its North American Partner Conference. We’ll kick off the show with an appearance by Red Hat Canada country leader Luc Villeneuve, who’ll take us through his first 16-plus months leading the Canadian organization, give us a feel for the state of the channel for Red Hat in Canada, and preview what’s coming up from Red Hat’s Canadian organization.

Then we’re joined by John Beimfohr, senior director of integration for Avnet Logistics, who takes us inside the distributor’s Global Solutions Center in the Phoenix area, giving us a view at where the distributor sees its integration business going in the converged infrastructure era, how they handle green concerns in a tech-heavy environment, and how the Center’s customer base is changing.

All this and more, in this edition of the ChanneBuzz.ca Podcast.
