Avnet Reports Surge in Server and Storage Revenue

IT Jungle reports IT distributor Avnet is riding an upgrade cycle for servers and storage. Not unlike its rival Arrow Electronics, Avnet reports an increase in revenue this year. Net income for the seller of IT gear and electronic components rose by 31.9 percent, to $151 million and overall revenues for Avnet grew 13 percent.
