IT Partners Achieves VMware Virtualization of Business Critical Applications (VBCA) Solution Competency
TEMPE, Ariz., March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — IT Partners, a leading Arizona-based technology consulting firm, announced its successful completion of VMware’s newest solution competency as part of VMware’s Partner Network Program, the virtualization of business critical applications (VBCA). The new competency is awarded to partners who have achieved the highest level of expertise around virtualizing business critical applications. IT Partners is certified in applications such as Microsoft Exchange & SharePoint, Oracle DB and Microsoft SQL Server.
“Our customer’s Tier-1 applications are those most closely aligned to the success of their organization – enabling core operations, generating revenue or supporting the delivery of critical services. They are also the applications that are least likely to be virtualized at this point,” states Bill Cassidy, IT Partners chief technology officer. “VMware is devoting significant engineering talent to addressing concerns and minimizing risks for customers. The VBCA competency and associated solution enablement tools arm our internal teams with the tools they need to engage customers to evaluate and virtualize these business-critical applications.”
VMware has established solution competencies as designations of expertise that enable customers to identify partners with the highest level of VMware technical solution knowledge and experience. VMware partners with competencies are able to earn customer credibility by driving deeper into customer engagements, based on knowledge and ability with these VMware solutions.
In addition to VBCA, IT Partners also holds VMware competencies in Infrastructure Virtualization, Desktop Virtualization, and Business Continuity.
