Shrewsbury, NJ (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
TechXtend (formerly Programmer’s Paradise), a leading value-added provider of server and storage virtualization, business intelligence and information management solutions, today announced that public sector institutions in New Jersey can now access the benefits of cloud computing and virtualized infrastructures at special rates. Members of NJEDge.Net, the New Jersey non-profit technology consortium, now have preferred access to VMware virtualization software, in addition to Lenovo servers, desktops, notebooks and tablets, EMC storage solutions, and Extreme Networks networking, wireless and switching hardware.
Fiscal pressures and the desire for academic excellence are driving educational institutions to pursue opportunities for operational efficiencies and shared services. Virtualization and cloud computing are information technology strategies that schools can use to help deliver modern and more effective services to students, educators, administrators and the public.
“Schools, colleges and universities, like all public sector organizations, are under extreme pressure to deliver more services but with lower expense,” said Shawn Giordano, Vice President and General Manager, TechXtend, Inc. “With our 30-year history in serving the public sector, TechXtend has the virtualization/cloud computing expertise to help them achieve these goals, by leveraging NJEDge and WSCA/NASPO contractual economies to facilitate the implementation of efficient shared services delivery systems.”
TechXtend is authorized to provide these technologies at contractual rates through its reseller authorizations by VMware under the NJEDge VMware Enterprise License Agreement and separately by Lenovo, EMC and Extreme Networks under those companies’ participation in the WSCA/NASPO contracts for Computer Equipment, Peripherals & Related Services (WSCA/NASPO-MN) w2-1999 and Data Communications Equipment and Associated OEM Maintenance & Training (WSCA-UT) w7-2002.
Educational, research and local government institutions must be members of NJEDge.Net, in order to participate in the NJEDge VMware Enterprise License Agreement. As public sector institutions, they are also eligible -- along with New Jersey state government agencies -- for the special rates negotiated in National Association of State Procurement Officials/Western States Contracting Alliance (NASPO/WSCA) contracts in which the State of New Jersey participates.
