Anything as a service

The ability to easily scale services as needed is business-critical for CloudBlue to operate a highly-available commerce platform for their vast ecosystem of cloud providers.

In addition, CloudBlue provides access to its established infrastructure of cost-effective order management, credit management, and order delivery.
Ingram Micro is more than just a distributor–it is a technology innovator, launching the annual Comet Competition to discover talented B2B ISV startups. Ingram Micro is also a marketing engine that targets and supports SMBs through seminars and events to integrated digital and print campaigns, and enables resellers to target SMBs with its Sales and Marketing Hub.
