Carahsoft Named by The Quilt as Master Strategic Distribution Partner for VMware

Quilt-VMware Convenience Pricing Program Reduces Costs and Accelerates
Use of Virtualization Technology for Quilt Members

Reston, VA – May 31, 2016 – Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that it has been named the distribution partner for theQuilt-VMware convenience pricing program. The Quilt, a non-profit coalition of advanced regional networks for research and education across the country, leverages the collective purchasing power of its membership and authorized member institutions to purchase advanced networking technology and services at a lower cost.

Through this program, Carahsoft will provide proactive customer facing sales and marketing resources alongside a dedicated channel partnership management team to train, recruit, and incentivize a rich partner ecosystem.

“Carahsoft will act as an extension of the current Quilt and VMware team to support our Quilt members and their Authorized Quilt Buyers,” said Jen Leasure, president and CEO at The Quilt. “Through this program, Quilt members will receive deep discounts for VMware and AirWatch by VMware, making virtualization and enterprise mobility adoption more easily accessible and affordable for our Quilt members and their connectedinstitutions.”

The adoption of virtualization technology by institutions is beneficial as it allows their IT departments to create a virtual environment at the workstation, server, or data center level. With this, an institution can reduce the number of physical servers or computers it needs, leading to reduced IT costs while still maintaining performance levels.

“We look forward to supporting The Quilt’s virtualization and enterprise mobility initiatives through proactive sales and marketing of VMware and AirWatch solutions,” said Will Jones, vice president of VMware Solutions at Carahsoft, which serves as VMware’s Master Public Sector Aggregator and largest Public Sector Distribution Partner. “This partnership program is committed to promoting the collective best interests of The Quilt’s member institution community.”
