Provider of high performing and secure ICT solutions, Datacentrix, has garnered the title of South African NetApp partner of the year for 2011.

According to NetApp South Africa channel manager, Matthew Barker, the award was given to Datacentrix based on the substantial rise in revenue achieved by the company year on year, as well as the acquisition of new accounts, both within the government and retail sectors.

NetApp Partner of the Year Qualifies as Top Services Partner

“We have partnered with Datacentrix for around 18 months now and our relationship has grown from strength to strength,” he says. “Their level of investment into NetApp and commitment to the brand has been eye opening.

“Within a short time period, they have not only reached Platinum Partner status, but also satisfied our requirements to qualify as both a Profession Service Certified (PSC) Professional Services Partner and Support Services Certified (SSC) Support Services Partner, all of which have stringent requirements that need to be fulfilled.”

Barker maintains that Datacentrix has assisted in elevating NetApp to a new level in South Africa through the penetration of new markets. “We are looking forward to continuing success with Datacentrix on a national basis into the future.”

“With so many companies focused on the bottom line today, NetApp’s storage and data management tools can help lower ROI by assisting them in reducing downtime and improving productivity, without requiring additional overheads,” explains Tony de Sousa, enterprise business unit manager at Datacentrix.

“With NetApp, local businesses will be able to decrease TCO by up to 62 percent, run database copies 97 percent faster than with alternative solutions and slash storage and data management costs for e-mail applications by over 60 percent.

“These type of solutions fit seamlessly into Datacentrix’ focus on the data centre level, enabling businesses to operate more efficiently and effectively,” he says. “We look forward to continuing and building on our partnership with NetApp as they continue to strive as NetApp Partner of the Year
