Ingram Micro gets closer to AMD

Expands global agreement

Ingram Micro is expanding its worldwide agreement with AMD.

The two firms will work to widen AMD’s footprint and work to generate demand in Europe, the Americas and “select areas within Asia Pacific”.

Sven Hollemann, director of components for Ingram Micro Europe, said: "Previously we could only sell AMD processors in central Europe - Austria, Germany and Switzerland. We will now sell processors across Europe." He said this was an extension of Ingram's one-stop-shop strategy.

Ingram already sells other AMD products, but not the processors, Hollemann said this would help the distributor get business off to a fast start: "Overall the server CPU business is growing and AMD has a very positive standing in that market."
