London, 24th October 2023 – Xtravirt, an independent cloud consulting and managed services provider, has today announced the launch of three VMware Validated Service Offerings (VSO) under VMware’s Cross-Cloud Managed Services programme. These solutions offer ‘outcome as a service’ for customers and include Managed Ransomware Protection, Managed VMware Cloud on AWS, and Managed Availability for VMware platforms.
Against a backdrop of cloud complexity, increasing security threats, and skills gaps, IT functions within organisations are being asked to bolster and fulfil their roles and responsibilities with the support of managed services businesses.
However, it can be difficult for organisations to find a managed services partner they can trust, one that can deliver the outcomes they promise. This is the challenge that VMware is solving with top tier partners like Xtravirt through Validated Service Offerings. A VSO is a VMware technology delivered in conjunction with Xtravirt Managed Services, that has been rigorously checked and endorsed for its ability to deliver a pre-defined outcome for a customer.
Steve Wood, Head of Managed Services at Xtravirt, explains:
“In today’s complex IT landscape it’s not just about implementing technology, but ensuring it aligns with business goals and delivers tangible outcomes. At Xtravirt, our focus has always been on driving value through strategic partnerships, like our alignment with VMware.
The introduction of Validated Service Offerings amplifies our commitment to this approach. It’s about smart sourcing, where we collaborate closely with our clients, leveraging VMware’s robust technologies, coupled with our managed services to deliver outcomes.
This ensures that our clients not only get the best of technology, but also a solution that evolves with their business, ensuring sustained success. In essence, our partnership with VMware and the VSOs epitomises Xtravirt’s dedication to delivering outcome-centric solutions for our clients.”
Further to its ISO accreditations and multiple VMware competencies and specialisations, Xtravirt had to go through a rigorous VMware audit process to ensure its service offerings met stringent quality standards and could achieve the ‘Validated Service Offering’ badge. The independent audit looked to evidence that Xtravirt not only had the processes in place, but also a proven track record of delivering lifecycle value and target outcomes through managed services to customers.
The packaged solutions that Xtravirt’s VSOs help to address are some of the greatest IT challenges faced by businesses today, including:
- Accelerating digital transformation
- Protecting against cybersecurity threats including ransomware
- Sourcing and retaining talent
The solutions are flexible and scalable, tailored to meet each customer’s needs, and can be as basic or comprehensive as the customer requires. Additionally, with VMware’s technology delivered together with an Xtravirt Managed Services wrapper, the combined focus is on working with customers to ensure a digital transformation journey which accelerates their time to value with guaranteed outcomes.
