The new subsidiary, based in Munich, Germany’s Gilching suburb, specializes in storage solutions and EMC product services.  It markets itself as a value-added distributor focused on backup and recovery, archiving, replication and storage.

“The acquisition of Orchestra is part of our long-term strategic plan to expand Avnet’s solutions portfolio in the region, while strengthening our EMC partnership in Germany,” Patrick Zammit, global president of Avnet Technology Solutions said in a statement. “Orchestra’s capabilities are an excellent complement to our converged infrastructure solutions offerings.”
