(Gawkwire) – Logicalis announced today that it has achieved the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization from Cisco. This specialization recognizes Logicalis as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, design and deploy comprehensive Cisco® Data Center solutions.
The specialization provides role-based training in three essential areas: Unified Fabric for optimizing data and storage needs; Unified Computing for streamlining data center resources and uniting network, computational, storage and virtualization platforms; and Unified Network Services for advancing the way application delivery and security services are provided in the data center network or computing environment.
“At Logicalis, our customers know that there are many solution providers who can sell them Cisco products. But they consistently tell us that the reason they choose Logicalis is because we understand what they want to do with that equipment and what it means to their businesses,” says Bob Hankins, vice president, Cisco solutions, for Logicalis. “That’s a reflection of the commitment of resources – both time and money – that Logicalis has made to becoming an expert in Cisco solution sales. Achieving the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization is a valuable extension of Logicalis’ skill set and testament to our commitment to our customers and our relationship with Cisco.”
“As a Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialized Partner, Logicalis has made a significant investment in the training required to help customers accelerate their business growth, reduce the total cost of ownership, and extend the life of its current infrastructure by making its data center more efficient, agile and resilient,” says Ralph Nimergood, vice president of data center architecture for the worldwide partner department at Cisco.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, design and technical talent and then validates their skills through a third-party audit.
