International solutions provider, Logicalis UK, announced today that it has achieved Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) Authorised Technology Provider (ATP) designation from Cisco. The designation recognises Logicalis as having fulfilled the training requirements and programme prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure products and solutions.
Participation in the Cisco ACI ATP Program allows Logicalis to offer their customers a new data centre architecture designed to simplify operations and greatly reduce provision time through automation for their applications.
Chris Gabriel, CTO at Logicalis UK, comments, “We’re delighted to receive this latest designation from Cisco. Together with our strategic vendor partners, we’ve long been committed to helping realise the positive impact of emerging technologies for enterprise IT, with Software Defined Networking and Application Centric Infrastructures at the top of that agenda for some time.
“We’re focused on helping our customers build a new relationship between IT and the Business, where the CIO is able to offer the choice of services their organization needs at the speed the business needs it - we call this the Service Defined Enterprise. The Cisco ACI authorisation is further testament to our investment in the skills, infrastructure, people and training that position us as a trusted partner in transforming the way organizations define and provision agile IT and data center services.”
To earn the ACI ATP designation, Logicalis fulfilled Cisco application centric infrastructure training and exam requirements. Logicalis also met the personnel and post sales support requirements set forth by Cisco.
The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider Program is part of the Cisco go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology practice.
