“We are strong advocates of Vizioncore products and have been using their flagship product, vRanger Pro, in deploying our unique ‘4corners’ data centre virtualisation solution. ‘4corners’ is a scalable, proven, and flexible pre-packaged data centre virtualisation solution that was developed by the team at Data#3. This solution provides the first step for businesses that want to build the next generation data centre cost effectively and quickly, usually within a few weeks. The whole solution comes with software, servers, storage, management console and implementation services which help our customers get the necessary returns in a very short time,” said David Barclay, Principal Specialist Consultant for Data#3.
“Winning this award for the second time is a tremendous achievement and testimony to the first class expertise and experience of our virtualisation team who have developed the ‘4corners’ solution. With customers under increasing pressure to reduce data centre operating costs without reducing performance or service levels, ‘4corners’ demonstrates our ability to understand and respond to these pressures and deliver robust solutions for data centre optimisation and disaster recovery using virtualisation technologies,” said John Grant, Managing Director of Data#3.
The award is presented to partners who have demonstrated the ability to go above and beyond in innovative marketing and sales initiatives and who use Vizioncore’s product set to develop and implement strategic solutions for end user customers. Award recipients are also recognized for their ability to generate revenue growth through their participation in Vizioncore partner programs and incentives.
