R-Com Consulting, a comprehensive technology solutions provider, today announced that it has been awarded VMware’s 2011 Rising Star. This award is presented to the VMware Partner who has made a significant difference and built up a strong VMware business in the last 12 months.


The Right Partner!

The additional VMware support and services granted with Premier status should greatly enhance the depth and breadth of our virtualisation solutions, enabling our clients to maximize ROI.

This achievement substantiates R-Com’s efforts to become a virtual infrastructure expert by investing in its Technical Engineers and Training Sales Consultants. R-Com Consulting is acknowledged as the UK's top performer in the market for the year as judged by the Internal VMware panel.

The company is a Manchester based, UK operation and was awarded the UK Rising Star Award at the Haymarket Hotel in London on the 26th January 2012. R-Com Consulting was one of 3 UK partners shortlisted for the ‘Rising Star Category’ in recognition of our outstanding growth. The Rising Star category was judged on various criteria, from Revenue growth %, Marketing campaigns executed and leverage of eco system products. R-Com was the only North West based VMware Partner invited to attend. The award categories ranged from ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’ to ‘Business Continuity Partner’ of the Year.

Before the winner was revealed, R-Com’s achievements were announced as follows:

  •     Achieved year on year growth of 120% on new licenses
  •     Broadened the traditional vSphere portfolio to embrace the VMware solution offerings and succeeded in growing their vFabric revenue by 15%
  •     Having only joined the VPN programs as professional partner in March 2009, they have gone on to become the fastest partner to move through the program – having gained PREMIER status in January 2012.

“We are proud to be recognised by VMware as their ‘Rising Star’ award winner. These awards are recognition of R-Com’s commitment of supporting virtualisation technologies and infrastructure strategies,” said Ayaz Rathore, Director of Sales at R-Com Consulting. “Winning the award recognises the exceptionally talented team that we have built and, in particular, to support our aggressive growth. It also demonstrates our goal to consistently exceed market expectations and customer satisfaction. With the comprehensive support and services tools of the VMware Partner Network along with our extensive virtualisation expertise, R-Com is poised to continue this success throughout 2012.”

Ayaz Rathore added, “We have reached many successful milestones amongst our client base over the past year and have emerged as a category leader through our tailored IT strategies, quality of delivery and results-driven client relationships. Through this alliance, R-Com’s VMware customers can achieve enhanced flexibility and performance of backup and recovery, reduced hardware requirements and ease-of-use for virtual environments. The result is a rapid return on investment for customers deploying server virtualization.

This accomplishment enables us to create more strategic and innovative virtualisation solutions for our clients. In addition, it educates our customers that we can provide optimal solutions through experienced, VMware-certified professionals. The additional VMware support and services granted with Premier status should greatly enhance the depth and breadth of our virtualisation solutions, enabling our clients to maximize ROI."

With the top-level partner status, R-Com will receive expanded technical and marketing services, more VMware software licenses for testing and integration, support for developing go-to-market plans together with the ability to participate in more VMware-sponsored events.
