Technologent to Help Customers Transition to Private Cloud with Integrated IT Infrastructures from Cisco, EMC and VMware
LAKE FOREST, Calif., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Technologent, a nationwide Solutions Integrator, announced today it has joined the Vblock partner ecosystem, a community of partners that are qualified to design and deliver Vblock™ Infrastructure Packages. These packages are an element of the Virtual Computing Environment coalition formed by Cisco, EMC, and VMware. As of today, Technologent can help customers accelerate their plans to implement cloud infrastructure based on industry-leading technology and take advantage of the critical IT efficiencies this provides.
Vblock Infrastructure Packages are integrated, tested and validated data center infrastructure offerings that combine best-of-breed virtualization software from VMware; unified networking, security, computing from Cisco; and storage, security and management technologies from EMC – all with end-to-end vendor accountability. Vblock Infrastructure Packages support a broad range of operating systems and applications that enable customers to rapidly migrate existing applications to Vblock infrastructure to accelerate broad-scale data center virtualization.
"Technologent is pleased to be part of the Vblock partner ecosystem, providing our customers with collaborative service offerings from three of our key cornerstone partners -- Cisco, EMC and VMware," said Marco Mohajer, Technologent Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "With the Vblock Infrastructure Packages, we will continue to serve as a trusted advisor to our customers, providing solutions designed to assist with all their virtual computing environment demands. We look forward to enabling our customers in their journey to the cloud with integrated packages combining best-of-breed Cisco, EMC, and VMware technologies."
Technologent qualifies for the Vblock partner ecosystem through its investment in technical certifications and partner designations for all of the Cisco, EMC and VMware products that comprise the Vblock Infrastructure Packages.
Technologent shares the Virtual Computing Environment coalition's vision for the future of the virtual data center. "We've found a tremendous amount of interest at the very top of the solution level on the topic of private clouds and firmly believe the advances in today's technology coupled with the growing trends of future development are tearing down the walls of separation between the three major pillars of Information Technology -- Network, Storage and Compute," said Tom Gallaway, Technologent's President.
The Vblock Infrastructure Packages were developed by the Virtual Computing Environment coalition formed jointly by Cisco, EMC, and VMware. The coalition represents an unprecedented level of collaboration across development, services and partner enablement that helps minimize the risks in bringing customers the financial and operational efficiencies of the future through virtualization.
