Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Flashpoint officially changes its name to Applied Computing Components (ACC) Avnet on Monday. This will complete the components distributor's August buyout by US company Avnet. It will also mean that the Slough-based company, which until last year espoused the joys of selling non-Intel product, will add the great Satan of chips to its portfolio for the first time. "We will have Intel on the line card, for tray and box products," confirmed Sukh Rayat, who will head up ACC Avnet's UK business. Rayat, Flashpoint MD, said the take-over of his business would also give Avnet opportunities to "expand into Europe", but was unable to elaborate further. His own job title was also undecided, he said. Avnet's UK office in Stevenage is due to merge with ACC Avnet's Slough office as part of the deal. "But nothing else has changed – it is business as usual," said Rayat. ® Related stories: Flashpoint Marshalled by Avnet troops Flashpoint's Rayat upgraded to MD
