GreenPages Technology Solutions Achieves New VMware Competency: Virtualization of Business Critical Applications (VBCA)
Kittery, ME—February 20, 2012—GreenPages Technology Solutions, a national cloud and virtualization consulting and integration firm, announced today that it has achieved VMware’s new Virtualization of Business Critical Applications (VBCA) Competency as part of VMware’s Partner Network Program.
Announced last week at VMware’s Partner Exchange Conference (PEX), the new competency is awarded to partners who have achieved the highest level of expertise around virtualizing business critical applications such as SQL, Oracle databases and applications, SAP, and Exchange.
“As customers begin to complete full virtualization of their infrastructures, they are increasingly looking for help in virtualizing their Tier 1 applications,” said Chris Ward, GreenPages’ Vice President of Consulting and Integration. “Earning this competency ensures that GreenPages can help organizations overcome the (often overwhelming) challenges of virtualizing their most important applications and set up a clear path to hybrid cloud solutions.”
In addition to VBCA, GreenPages also holds VMware competencies in Infrastructure Virtualization, Desktop Virtualization, and Business Continuity.
“VMware is pleased to recognize GreenPages for achieving the VBCA solution competency. Achieving this competency demonstrates to customers that GreenPages is committed to be an expert in helping customers virtualize their IT environments, enabling them to confidently select GreenPages as a solution provider capable of delivering VMware solutions to customers on the journey to cloud computing,” said Doug Smith, vice president, global partner strategy and operations, VMware. “We value our partnership with GreenPages and we appreciate their efforts in achieving this VMware distinction.”
GreenPages is a VMware Premier Partner, VMware’s highest partner level and a member of both VMware’s Partner Technical Advisory Board and VMware’s Partner Advisory Council—elite invite-only groups created by VMware to foster open communication between its top partners and product and technology leaders.
In February of 2011, VMware named GreenPages its “Solution Provider of the Year” in the Americas and GreenPages’ CEO, Ron Dupler, its “Partner Executive MVP” for outstanding leadership, technology vision, and business innovation.
