Avnet plans to offer training courses around the packages and can help VARs and MSPs obtain whatever certifications are required to sell and support the solutions too, Avnet's FitzGerald said.
"At the end of the day, trusted advisors are the most knowledgeable on the technologies that make up those solutions," he said. "There's a tone of different training to partners for both Amazon specifically and Comptia-based Cloud Essentials training. We absolutely believe training is needed to be a trusted advisor."
Avnet is likely to add additional cloud bundles based on Amazon Web Services in the future, FitzGerald said.
"We think Amazon has relevance beyond these four offerings in alignment with those seven categories. Those seven categories are relevant today and we commit to remaining relevant to what our audience will look for in cloud solutions. We continue to evaluate whether we should add additional categories. We are spending time researching a couple key areas," Fitzgerald said.
