"Being shortlisted for three awards demonstrates our emerging strength in the storage arena. Our close vendor partnerships and breadth of technical expertise makes us one of London's strongest storage partners." Guy Brandon, Director, MBA IT
London, Greater London (PRWEB UK) 8 May 2013
MBA IT is delighted to have been shortlisted in the prestigious Storage Awards, which are now in their 9th year. The awards highlight the best channel and customer success stories in the storage arena and it is the first time that MBA IT have been nominated.
Gary Miller, Director at MBA IT believes the nominations are an indication of how the company has developed. "The company has grown rapidly, year on year, with our primary focus in the early years being servers, desktops and print solutions. As our customer base has matured, our Technical Services team has grown and we are now regularly involved with our customers at a more strategic level. We tend to offer guidance at the project design and planning stage now, which invariably involves an element of data storage planning, as the data explosion shows no signs of abating."
MBA IT is a HP Gold Preferred Partner (Advanced Computing Specialist) and believes their converged storage is head and shoulders above its competition. Also known for keeping an eye on new and emerging technologies, particularly the disruptive "Software Defined Data Centre" technologies. MBA IT was one of the UK's first Nutanix Elite partners and believes their groundbreaking converged server and storage combined appliance, will be hugely popular, especially when used to power specific projects, like VDI, Private Cloud and Big Data. MBA IT's customers are also paying particular attention to Tintri's VM-aware storage, as a credible alternative to some of the more traditional storage choices.
Guy Brandon, Director at MBA IT believes that by partnering only with best-in-class vendors, MBA IT's customers will get the best fit technology for their requirements. "We work closely with our key vendors, investing a lot of time and resource into understanding and educating about their products. Our customers are our number one priority and we have to have confidence in the products that we recommend to them. When you provide an end to end solution like ours, from design and product selection to implementation and integration, to support and maintenance, we need to know we are giving the customer the optimal choice for their business."
