Distributor Arrow Electronics has announced an EMEA-wide agreement with Taiwan-based AIC Systems.

AIC’s OEM/ODM server and storage solutions will allow Arrow customers to target vertical markets.

The AIC portfolio includes Direct-Attached Storage (DAS), Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and IP-SAN storage solutions that support major interfaces including Fibre Channel (FC), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA).

In addition, AIC’s servers and storage servers are customisable using technologies such as AIC’s MAX I/O.

Arrow says it also takes care of product approval, supply chain and logistics management, and post-design support. The Arrow network covers the globe, with local teams serving key territories. 

“The AIC Systems product line boosts our strategy in EMEA, empowering us to deliver high-performing, competitively priced white label server and storage solutions,” said Amir Mobayen, vice president and general manager for Arrow OEM Computing Solutions EMEA.

“OEMs in markets such as broadcast and security and surveillance demand innovative form factors combined with the latest technology and Arrow OCS has the flexibility to customise a solution.”

Jeff Lin, vice president of sales at AIC, added: “We identified the need to collaborate with a leading OEM solution provider to grow our business in key market sectors in EMEA.

“Arrow OCS has the market presence, resources and wide-ranging competencies to promote our portfolio.”
