Our work with network management and server and storage virtualization in the data center, among other initiatives, is delivering tighter controls and greater cost savings to our customers.
Bloomfield Hills, MI (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
The data center, once considered back-office, is now at the heart of IT decisions for companies of all sizes and industries. To better serve its data center customers, Logicalis (http://www.us.logicalis.com), a global provider of high-performance technology, today announced it has received the Cisco Data Center Networking Infrastructure Certification accreditation. The new certification from Cisco emphasizes the critical importance of the data center and highlights the value of selecting the right data center partner. Logicalis is one of only six Gold partners with this certification in the U.S. and less than 10 worldwide to achieve this distinction.
Building, expanding and improving data center infrastructure is necessary for improved disaster recovery, constraining runaway IT energy costs, increasing connectivity and applying new competitive technologies. Organizations focusing on data center efficiency, utilization and flexibility must have trained and certified partners, making this Cisco certification a real benefit to customers. Logicalis provides a comprehensive set of data center solutions that is also part of its Managed Services offerings, enabling customers to out-task their IT infrastructure both physically and logistically to Logicalis to remotely manage via its Enterprise Business Operation Centers in Cincinnati, OH, the UK and Argentina.
