Independent application and desktop delivery specialist Centralis has achieved a certificate of competency from VMware. The competency underlines Centralis' commitment to achieving the highest possible level of expertise in the on demand virtualised application and desktop delivery solutions that it adopts.
In a market place now dominated by end users demanding working flexibility, personalised devices and increased choice both personally and professionally, the need to offer high standard virtualisation solutions has never been higher.
Mark Newton, UK Managing Director of VMware said; "The competency program is designed to clearly differentiate our partners' expertise to customers and maximise the benefits of the VMware Partner Network. To have undertaken the extensive technical training that we demand of our certified partners is testament not only to the quality of the product itself, but also to a partner's commitment to providing its customers with the highest possible level of expertise."
Rob Greenslade, Sales and Marketing Director of Centralis, said; "Centralis takes great pride in its position as an independent expert in virtualisation. Only by partnering with the key vendors can we advise customers on their options and recommend strategic solutions. Given their history in the virtualisation market and investment in the application and desktop areas it was obvious that we needed to include VMware's solutions as an option."
Greenslade continued; "Having a high level of certification from a software vendor is a pretty good indication of commitment to their technologies, but specific competencies give customers the confidence that a company really knows what it is doing. Investment in such training and certification by Centralis has resulted in very high levels of customer satisfaction and that in turn keeps us growing as a business. The virtualised desktop competency from VMware is the latest step in maintaining these high standards and fulfilling our commitment to offering objective advice to our customers."
