Cisco News - Secure-24 Becomes Cisco Premier Certified Partner
By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor
The certification entitles Secure-24 to gain heightened access to Cisco tools, support, technical resources and world-class technical and product training.
Secure-24 uses Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as its virtualization platform for SAP (News - Alert) and Oracle applications. The solution gives the flexibility for pre-provisioned systems and allows consistency in deployment of applications.
With UCS support, Secure-24 customers can deliver the underlying architecture faster, without any complexity. Secure-24 uses Cisco’s Data Center Architecture 3.0 to deliver reliable, low-latency connectivity for over 150 clients with operations around the globe.
“Cisco’s recognition validates the efforts we reach for our customers. From a hosting provider’s perspective, one of the most important things we can do for our customers is to make sure there is suitable scalability. Cisco UCS platforms does this for us clearly,” said Secure-24 chief operating officer Volker Straub, in a statement.
According to Straub, scalability is one of the biggest aspects in the private cloud. Customers may require additional hardware and resources as they grow. The UCS platform allows Secure-24 to scale those resources and provide those to the client.
To gain the certification, Secure-24 surpassed Cisco’s technical competency requirements in the integration of computing and security technologies. Only those companies that have consistent level of product knowledge and technical expertise, along with use of Cisco’s network solutions, can attain this certification.
In another recent development Secure-24 announced that it will offer several technology outsourcing services built upon the latest EMC (News - Alert) technology. As a long-standing partner with EMC, Secure-24 goes to market with these offerings in the EMC Velocity Service Provider program. The EMC Velocity Service Provider Program is a comprehensive, multi-faceted program that empowers select service provider partners to plan, create, deploy, market, sell and deliver EMC-powered public and private cloud services.
