Xtravirt Achieves VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency

Xtravirt to Deliver VMware Cloud on AWS

1 May 2018 — Leading cloud consulting organisation Xtravirt today announced it has achieved the VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency, and will deliver VMware Cloud on AWS solutions. This achievement makes Xtravirt currently the only UK partner to hold all 13 VMware Partner Solution Competencies. VMware Cloud on AWS delivers VMware’s Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) via the AWS Cloud, allowing customers to run applications across operationally consistent VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, with optimised access to AWS services.

The VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency is the newest addition to VMware’s solution competency offerings. Solution competencies provide the sales and technical training partners need to be successful selling and managing VMware technology. This new VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency helps partners achieve the expertise to help customers with hybrid cloud solutions and services.

Partners that attain the VMware Solution Competencies are leading the charge in helping customers build long-term robust computing strategies. The competencies validate partner organisations’ knowledge, commitment and expertise.

“Achievement of this competency demonstrates Xtravirt’s knowledge and expertise in the key area of VMware SDDC and our ability to deliver the best possible solution to customers”, said Stuart Durrett, chief operating officer, Xtravirt. “This competency means that Xtravirt now holds all the available VMware Partner Solution Competencies and is currently the only UK partner to do so, reinforcing the breadth and depth of our capability across all VMware solution areas”.

Public clouds enable customers to gain flexibility and speed to respond to changing business needs, accelerate innovation, and align costs to business requirements. Customers are also recognising the benefit of having public clouds integrate and work seamlessly with on-premises infrastructure in order to take advantage of existing teams, skillsets, tools and processes.

VMware Cloud on AWS enables customers to add value to their business in the AWS cloud, while maximising their VMware investments, without the need to buy new hardware, or refactor applications.

Enterprise customers can work with partners such as Xtravirt to be their trusted advisors as they move towards the emerging hybrid cloud model. Xtravirt can bring industry and technical expertise to customers to help them quickly execute on their digital transformation initiatives using VMware Cloud on AWS.

“We are pleased to see Xtravirt deliver VMware Cloud on AWS, and achieve the new VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency. With this, Xtravirt can help customers accelerate cloud adoption and migration, modernise their data center environments and increase IT efficiency,” said Alan Barber, vice president, Worldwide Professional Services TAM, VMware. “VMware Cloud on AWS provides a full VMware-based Software-Defined Data Center experience extending from customers’ on-premises environment to AWS, the world’s largest public cloud. The solution enables customers to eliminate operational complexity by managing a hybrid cloud environment with familiar VMware tools.”
