TRACE3, a provider of solutions and services for reducing IT infrastructure complexity, has met the Cisco certified personnel levels required to become a Data Center Unified Computing Authorized Technology Partner (ATP (News - Alert)).
This recognizes Trace3 to ensure clients that sales and support divisions are prepared to sell, design, install and support the ATP program specific technology and products.
"With today's customers demanding the technology to do more with less, the Cisco B-series Blade solution will allow customers to scale, provision and re-provision as the business needs change while saving on power, cooling, valuable data center space, capital and operation expenses. Virtualization is the cornerstone of the reference architecture of the future, and with industry leading virtualization technologies from Cisco with the B-series solutions, VMware and NetApp for storage Trace3 can now provide completely virtualized reference architecture for our customers now and for years to come," MacInnes said.
“Trace3’s Data Center experience makes them an ideal candidate for Cisco’s Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Specialization focused on Unified Computing. Their holistic approach to designing data center solutions enables customer IT departments to increase their scalability and efficiency. This is an outstanding accomplishment for Trace3,” said Mike Doria, sales director of data center and virtualization at Cisco.
To qualify as a Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Authorized Technology Provider, Trace3 had to achieve the Cisco Data Center Networking Infrastructure Specialization and the Cisco Data Center Storage Networking Specialization and demonstrate mature competencies in server, storage and virtualization technologies.
“Taking advantage of an architectural shift in the data center, Cisco’s new computing model can help customers transform the data center into a dynamic IT environment with the power to increase productivity, improve efficiency and drive virtualization to an entirely new level,” added John Growdon, director of Worldwide Channels Go-to-Market Group at Cisco. “As a Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Authorized Technology Provider, Trace3 is a member of an elite ecosystem of industry leaders working with Cisco to stimulate technology innovation, augment service delivery, and accelerate the market adoption of unified computing.”
