CDW are delighted to announce that we have successfully achieved the VMware Master Services Competency for Network Virtualisation – the highest attainable status in this category.

The Networking Virtualisation Master Services attainment demonstrates CDW’s expertise in the deployment and optimisation of VMware NSX environments and services.

NSX offers a completely new operational model for networking that forms the foundation of the Software-Defined Data Centre (SDDC). It enables creation of entire networks in software, embedding these networks in the hypervisor layer and abstracted from the underlying physical hardware.

This top-tier competency showcases our commitment to continue building our services delivery practice to help support our customers transform their IT. It provides us the opportunity to attain Principal Partner Tier within VMware Partner Connect, helping to offer increased benefits to our customers.

Mark Ellis, Consultancy Manager – Hybrid Infrastructure (CDW), said “The addition of this new competency firmly solidifies our partnership and expertise with VMware. Being one of only three providers, and the largest UK based partner with three key MSCs, positions us uniquely in the market and gives our customers confidence that CDW delivers only the highest quality of service. The hard work and dedication of our Professional Services technical co-workers has been nothing short of inspirational.”

Rui Vieira, Consultancy Manager – Networking and Security (CDW), added“This achievement reflects the hard work and dedication from our Professional Services consultants in bringing further depth to our technical delivery portfolio. The support teams at CDW, which helped to achieve this, has been second to none and we are looking forward to continuing to deliver expert services to our clients. To be formally recognised for this achievement is a very proud day for CDW and all our co-workers.”  

Peter Klint, Senior Director NEMEA Networking and Security (VMware), said “VMware is delighted to recognise CDW for achieving the Network Virtualisation Master Services Competency. This achievement demonstrates the significant commitment that partners like CDW have made in sales and technical training required to support customers successfully deploy VMware solutions.”
