LAS VEGAS, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GNAX Health, a healthcare technology infrastructure service provider located in Atlanta, Georgia, proudly announces certification as the first and only healthcare IT company to meet VMware's criteria as a "vCloud Powered" services provider. The announcement was made by Mariano Maluf, CTO, GNAX Health, and President, Global VMUG, today at VMworld2011, the U.S. conference for VMware technology professionals, partners and users. Maluf is also a speaker at this week's VMworld2011 conference. This announcement follows an earlier VMware certification as an official Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) for healthcare technology.
"We're thrilled to be certified as the first healthcare IT company to deliver VCloud Powered services," mentions Maluf. The partnership gives GNAX Health customers access to the newest technological developments in private, public and hybrid cloud applications. GNAX Health is a division of GNAX, Global Net Access.
