Dec 10, 2010, 12:07 ET from Nexus

VALENCIA, Calif., Dec. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexus announced today that it has joined the Vblock partner ecosystem, a community of partners that are qualified to augment, resell, and deliver VCE's Vblock™ platform. The Vblock platform is an element of VCE, the Virtual Computing Environment, formed by Cisco and EMC with investments from VMware and Intel. As a Vblock Qualified Partner, Nexus helps accelerate the journey to the private cloud using Vblock technology.

Nexus qualifies as a Vblock Qualified Partner through its investment in technical certifications and partner designations for all of the Cisco, EMC and VMware products that comprise the Vblock platform. Nexus has installed Vblock technology in its NexSteps Innovation Lab and leverages this technology in their production environment.

VCE represents an unprecedented level of collaboration across development, services and partner enablement among three leading IT vendors, helping eliminate the burden and risks that consume most data center resources. "VCE's Vblock platform helps customers more efficiently transform their IT operations to take advantage of virtualization and converged infrastructure adoption," said Pete Koliopoulos, VCE Channel Development.

The Vblock platform is the industry's first completely integrated, tested and validated IT infrastructure offering that combines best-in-class virtualization, networking, computing, storage, security, and management technologies with end-to-end vendor accountability. The integrated nature of the Vblock platform reduces the time-consuming and costly planning, architecting and testing phases of deployment. In their NexSteps Innovation Lab, Nexus can offer in-person or remote demonstrations of the features and benefits of this integrated strategy.  

"Virtualization has always been a key focus of the Nexus Data Center practice, helping our customers lower their total cost of ownership, and increase resiliency and agility," said Steven Patterson, Nexus Director of Data Center Sales. "We're pleased to be recognized as an official Vblock Qualified Partner, and look forward to continuing to share our first-hand experience in how Vblock technology can benefit our customers."
