Xtravirt Achieves VMware Software-Defined Wide Area Network Solution Competency

14 January 2019 — Leading cloud consulting organisation Xtravirt today announced it has achieved the VMware Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)  Solution Competency. This competency is the newest addition to VMware’s solution competency offerings. In achieving the competency, Xtravirt is recognised for its expertise in VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud and their ability to help customers simplify their complex networks, improve application performance and reduce costs.

“Achieving VMware’s Partner Solution Competencies provides our customers with an added layer of quality assurance” said Stuart Durrett, chief operating officer, Xtravirt. “With this recent addition,  Xtravirt now holds 13 of the available VMware Solution Competencies, reinforcing the breadth and depth of our capability across all VMware solution areas”.

SD-WAN offers significant business value for organisations with distributed branches in terms of business agility and the ability to leverage internet bandwidth economies and cost savings.

“We are pleased to see that Xtravirt has achieved its SD-WAN competency,” said Shawn Toldo, vice president, Worldwide Solution Partners, VMware. “By building upon VMware Solution Competency achievements, Xtravirt continues to help customers build long term, robust computing strategies.” Enterprise customers can work with partners such as Xtravirt to be their trusted advisors as they use software and cloud-based technologies to simplify the delivery of WAN services to branch offices. Xtravirt can bring industry and technical expertise to customers to help them deploy Internet-based connectivity easily, quickly and with quality, reliability and security.
