CATEGORY: IT SOLUTION
What converged or hyperconverged infrastructure solutions do you specialise in?
We specifically partner with SimpliVity for convergence.
When did your company first get involved in this area?
We have been watching the space for two years, but committed heavily to it and SimpliVity in April 2015.
Which credentials do you have that apply to converged or hyperconverged infrastructure?
We have VMware sales and presales tech certification and SimpliVity sales and tech certifications. Other than that, all the general infrastructure certifications, such as HP ASE, still apply.
Who are your main distributors for converged or hyperconverged infrastructure?
The main distributor for SimpliVity infrastructure is Distribution Central. For network infrastructure, we use Dicker Data.
Have you heard of any cool or interesting recent developments in this space?
Our focus has been on SimpliVity technology, especially the inline dedupe/compression at the heart of the system is the reason for our vendor selection. It allows very cool things to be achieved with the reduction or elimination of data I /O and capacity requirements.
Can you tell us about a recent deployment you have done?
We recently deployed SimpliVity systems to St Andrews Anglican College and Somerset College. We are about to deliver to Kimberley College. The gains in functionality and performance are evident very quickly.
