NEW YORK — March 21, 2018 — Presidio, Inc. (NASDAQ:PSDO), a leading North American IT solutions provider of Digital Infrastructure, Cloud and Security solutions, today announced the company is expanding its Data Center Modernization practice with VMware Cloud on AWS, a hybrid cloud solution that leverages VMware's Software-Defined Data Center platform delivered on AWS infrastructure.
In developing this capability, Presidio was one of the first Solution Providers to achieve the VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency. A VMware Solution Competency is a designation of expertise in VMware virtualization and cloud computing solutions. This competency demonstrates Presidio’s commitment toward supporting the hybrid cloud environment, enabling our customers to meet today’s complex and dynamic business needs.
As more customers find themselves in a hybrid cloud world, they can struggle to find the right balance between leveraging on-premises investments and public cloud efficiencies. “Presidio has a deep background and experience in developing secure data center solutions on VMware and has been an innovator and leader in AWS cloud services,” said Bob Cagnazzi, CEO, Presidio. “By wrapping Presidio’s complete lifecycle of services around VMware Cloud on AWS, Presidio can help enable customers to develop and implement comprehensive hybrid cloud strategies.”
“We are pleased to see Presidio offer VMware Cloud on AWS and achieve the new VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency. With this achievement, Presidio can help customers accelerate cloud adoption and migration, modernize their data center environments and increase IT efficiency,” said Frank Rauch, vice president, Americas Partner Organization, VMware. “VMware Cloud on AWS provides a full VMware-based Software-Defined Data Center experience that extends from customers’ on-premises environment to the world’s largest public cloud, AWS, and enables customers to eliminate operational complexity by managing a hybrid cloud environment with familiar VMware tools.”
Presidio is strongly positioned to help customers navigate this new ecosystem. As a VMware Premier Solution Provider Partner, and an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Consulting Partner, Presidio has been involved with VMware Cloud on AWS from very early on. Over the last three years, Presidio has earned VMware's Partner of the Year award in the Software-Defined Data Center (2015, Americas; 2016, Global and Americas) and NSX (2017, Global and Americas), and was also recognized at the vSAN Partner Awards at VMworld U.S. 2017. These are the three solutions that make up VMware Cloud Foundation, which powers VMware Cloud on AWS.
