UXC Connect, Australia’s largest locally owned and operated IT infrastructure company has today announced that it has achieved the Advanced Data Centre Architecture Specialisation from Cisco.
This specialisation recognises UXC Connect as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, design and deploy comprehensive Cisco® Data Centre solutions.
The specialisation provides role-based training in three essential areas: Unified Fabric for optimising data and storage needs; Unified Computing for streamlining data centre resources and uniting network, computational, storage and virtualisation platforms; and Unified Network Services for advancing the way application delivery and security services are provided in the data centre network or computing environment.
According to Iggy Pintado, Director, Marketing and Innovation at UXC Connect, this achievement not only recognises UXC Connect’s strength and legacy but it also allows it to add additional value and support to its customers.
“It’s extremely rewarding to have achieved the Advanced Data Centre Architecture specialisation from Cisco, with whom UXC Connect has had a working relationship for more than 14 years,” said Pintado. “This certification complements UXC Connect’s existing relationships with industry leading vendors in the data centre space. We have a unique understanding of how these technologies interconnect and this adds value to our customers because it allows us to maximise the efficiencies and capabilities of our solutions.”
“Additionally this Cisco certification enables UXC Connect to help transition our customers to the private cloud, which is the next step for the data centre.”
“As a Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialized Partner, UXC Connect has made a significant investment in the training required to help customers accelerate their business growth, reduce the total cost of ownership, and extend the life of its current infrastructure by making its data center more efficient, agile and resilient,” said Ralph Nimergood, vice president of data center architecture for the worldwide partner department at Cisco.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, design and technical talent and then validates their skills through a third-party audit.
UXC Connect has a strong background in providing data centre solutions to Australia’s leading businesses across government, health and education sectors.
UXC Connect is a Cisco Gold certified partner.
