Strategix Technology Solutions, a South African ICT services provider delivering disaster recovery, cloud, managed services, and virtualisation solutions, has announced it has achieved VMware Cloud Verified status.

As a VMware 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 powerful 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. 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. 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,” says Steve Dalgarno, MD of Strategix.

“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 Hervé Basso, senior director: cloud providers sales, EMEA, 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.”

VMware’s global network of more than 4 500 cloud providers leverage VMware’s consistent cloud infrastructure to offer a wide array of services in over 120 countries, provide geographic and industry specialisation, and help customers meet complex regulatory requirements.
