NextiraOne has announced that it has achieved the Cisco Cloud Builder designation within the Cisco Cloud Partner Program. The designation recognises NextiraOne’s competencies to sell and implement Cisco end to-end cloud solutions for end customers in the UK and five other countries, including Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Portugal. As a Cisco designated Cloud Builder Partner, NextiraOne has met the required competencies across all cloud infrastructure components (security, networking, computer, storage and virtualisation solutions), cloud management applications and a formal cloud professional services practice.
This new certification, together with a VMware Enterprise level partner accreditation, highlights NextiraOne UK’s expertise in helping customers to adopt third generation cloud-based Data Centre technologies.
“This sort of recognition by the world’s leading vendors combined with our facilities and IT expertise, positions NextiraOne as one of the UK’s leading Data Centre service providers. These certifications highlight our ability to fully manage the transformation to a scalable, cost-effective cloud infrastructure, whether our customers implement private, public or hybrid cloud in a single computer room or across multiple Data Centres,” commented Geraint Davies, Head of Data Centre Business.
“We have made major investments in developing and enhancing the skills set and expertise of our technical and service delivery teams so that they can design and deliver smart data centre transformation solutions, tailored to individual customer needs. NextiraOne now has a strong capability across its entire European organisation.
“We have already won several hundred customers across all our markets. Our customers are now increasingly demanding energy-friendly, end-to-end solutions for their data centres – and they are looking for a partner with strong integration and security expertise,” added Geraint Davies. “We are already well-positioned to meet these requirements. Our year-on-year growth of 58% in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period last year in our Data Centre and Cloud Solutions business clearly demonstrates the level of confidence and trust our customers across Europe place in NextiraOne.”
