Datacom’s trans-Tasman performance and fresh, innovative approach to cloud services have earned it the title of VMware’s ANZ Partner of the Year award. Duncan Bennett , VMware ANZ managing director, says Datacom’s VMware-based cloud strategy for the New Zealand Government and managed services customers, and its establishment of a technology centre in Queensland, showcasing VMware solutions, were key contributors to Datacom’s success.
“Datacom takes a fresh, out-of-the-box approach to technology so it makes sense for an enterprise’s specific needs. We look forward to growing our partnership with Datacom in the months and years to come,” says Bennett.
Scott Green, Datacom director, Auckland IT Management, says the award, presented at the VMware’s Partner Exchange 2012 event in Sydney, was an important recognition from a strategic partner.
“It reflects the importance of the VMware relationship – particularly with regard to our major ongoing investment in providing enterprise-class cloud services to our customers.
“Our progress towards this goal is increasingly well recognised. Last month Datacom won the 2012 award for Best Local Provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud Services in a comprehensive review of cloud service providers in Australia published by specialist IT market research firm Longhaus,” says Green.
The company was number 41 in the 2011 MIS100 report on the top IT using organisations in New Zealand.
