Proact was awarded for Data centre Excellence
Proact’s standing as a leading data centre integrator and private cloud services provider has been named FlexPod Partner of the Year by NetApp. The award was presented to Proact CEO Martin Ödman at the 2015 NetApp EMEA Partner Excellence Awards ceremony in Warsaw.
The Partner of the Year award is a testament to Proact’s commitment to NetApp’s converged data centre infrastructure. By combining NetApp storage systems with Cisco servers and switches into a single, flexible solution Proact has successfully reduced deployment time, project risk and overall IT costs.
Since the introduction of FlexPod in 2010, Proact has successfully implemented FlexPod solutions across the EMEA region for customers, including A. Schulman and Movir of the Netherlands, OneSubsea in Norway and SMÅA and VIDA in Sweden.
“We are very proud to be recognised by NetApp for our work and commitment to their data centre solutions, and look forward to extending this successful partnership to benefit both present and future customers,” said Martin Ödman, CEO of Proact. “As their architecture evolves, we will continue building Proact’s expertise for the design and deployment of data centre solutions, optimised for each customer and application.”
NetApp’s Partner Excellence awards program recognises those partners who go beyond the call of duty for their customers and demonstrate success at the highest level. For the awards, partners are evaluated on revenue attainment, growth and investment in NetApp training.
“This is a well-deserved award for one of Europe’s leading converged infrastructure solutions players,” says Thomas Ehrlich, VP Global Accounts & Pathway Ecosystem EMEA. “Proact bring key capabilities to existing customers and prospects in terms of consultancy, implementation, support – and a true pan-EMEA presence.
