I’m proud to share that this week at VMware Partner Exchange 2014, SHI received the Solution Provider Partner of the Year Award. This is the sixth VMware Partner of the Year Award we have won during the last several years — an indication of the strength and maturity of our VMware partnership.
2013 was a strong year for our relationship with VMware. We became one of the first partners to offer VMware vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS) and, in fact, booked the first ever vCHS order! The addition of this service to our portfolio of VMware virtualization and cloud solutions no doubt contributed to SHI’s 44 percent increase in VMware revenue in 2013.
Equally impressive is the commitment we made to developing and training VMware support personnel. SHI currently has on staff:
- 25+ VMware Certified Professional (VCP) — certified engineers and architects
- 50+ VMware Technical Solutions Professional (VTSP) — certified sales resources
- 500+ VMware Sales Professional (VSP) — inside and outside sales
Congratulations to everyone at SHI who contributes to the success of this partnership! And to our customers, you can be sure we will continue our commitment to providing unparalleled VMware solutions and support.
