Strategix Technology Solutions has achieved VMware Cloud Verified status.

As a the only in country VMware Cloud Verified Partner as well as VMware Professional Services Organization (PSO) partner that has achieved Advanced Level status Strategix Technology Solutions is focused on equipping customers across industry sectors with the capabilities to enhance their operational strategy through focused technology solutions that address the digital requirements of business today.

The VMware Cloud Verified status enables Strategix to provide customers with a combination of enterprise-grade cloud solutions backed by extensive local support. This ensures that companies can maximise their technology investment and access secure workloads in a cloud environment at a local pricing structure.

The Cloud Verified designation indicates that a provider offers the complete VMware-based software defined data centre infrastructure delivered as a service. VMware Cloud Verified partner services enable customers to achieve unmatched levels of consistency, performance, and interoperability for both traditional or containerised enterprise applications and the confidence that the service is based on the most advanced VMware cloud technologies.

“This status means Strategix can serve customers in achieving a true hybrid cloud within their own application framework,” says Steve Dalgarno, MD of Strategix. “We provide them with the flexibility of extending their VMware cloud from private to hybrid at the touch of a button. We have invested heavily in VMware skills and certifications to become a VMware Professional Services Organization (PSO).

“Being a VMware Cloud Verified partner means we can deliver even more flexible solutions to our customers at local call outs instead of having them go through an international call centre,” he adds. “It also provides sovereignty to our clients to protect their Data unlike with International Hyperscalers who, when subpoenad, have to release company data under American Law.

“If enterprise and corporate companies can support local companies that can provide a similar solution or better with local services, this will greatly assist in growing our local economy in a time where some of their cloud spend could be kept local, thereby assisting South African cloud companies to expand and grow local skills,” Dalgano says.

“Partners that are VMware Cloud Verified provide organisations with complete and advanced VMware Cloud technologies, along with interoperability across clouds for greater advantage for their customers’ businesses,” says HervĂ© Basso, senior director, cloud providers sales: EMEA at VMware. “Cloud Verified services delivered by VMware Cloud Providers can provide the efficiency, agility, and reliability inherent in cloud computing. We look forward to supporting Strategix as it empowers organisations with a simple and flexible path to the cloud.”
