BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2015) - Today at the first annual
Cloud Summit Europe,Ingram Micro Inc.(NYSE:IM) announced the availability of

Microsoft Office 365, Acronis, Nomadesk, and Cirius. Ingram Micro anticipates
adding many others, including Intel Security, soon. The Ingram Micro Cloud
Marketplace is scheduled to launch in Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, and
Sweden in the second quarter of 2015.

The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is an ecosystem of buyers, sellers and
solutions that enables channel partners to purchase, provision, manage and
invoice cloud technologies with confidence and ease. Available now to channel
partners in France, Netherlands, and the UK, the Cloud Marketplace brings
together Ingram Micro's growing portfolio of leading cloud vendors and
services in a way that enables partners to lift their business into the cloud
by exploiting the growing opportunity in the SMB market. With the Cloud
Marketplace, channel partners can manage the complete end-customer
subscription lifecycle from a single, automated platform, provided and
supported by Ingram Micro. The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace currently
offers English, French, and Spanish language support with German expected to
be added in Q2 2015. The Cloud Marketplace is functional with EUR and GBP
currency, with other currencies to follow.

"For our channel partners, enabling businesses to operate in a hybrid
environment that includes cloud-based solutions is as much about business
transformation as it is about technology," said Carl Alloin, Executive
Director Europe, Ingram Micro Cloud. "Our Cloud Marketplace was designed to
help channel partners quickly scale as they seek to expand their footprint
and profitability in the cloud."

The much anticipated Microsoft Office 365 is now available on the Ingram Micro
Cloud Marketplace, providing partners the ability to directly purchase,
provision, and offer unique Office 365 bundles, set prices and invoice
monthly. Partners can also offer consolidated billing, providing customers
with an easier way to manage their subscription costs. Ingram Micro is the
first master cloud service provider to offer a true, online consumption model
for Office 365 that is also backed by a suite of migration services from
Skykick. Through Ingram Micro, channel partners can immediately begin
offering Office 365 to their customers, positively affecting their overall
business performance and ability to quickly increase sales in the cloud.

In addition to its new Marketplace, Ingram Micro is announcing other new cloud
services and programs designed to further drive partner success:

problems on its own, customer support is also key. Cloud Ignite Services

profits," said Ben Gower, CEO of Perspicuity. "The new Cloud Marketplace
gives us the vendors, services and programs we need to grow our cloud
business while better serving our customers."

consumption models that are positively impacting their businesses," said
