To support the expanding role of the network in deploying cloud services, Force 3 announced today it has achieved the Cisco Cloud Builder designation within the Cisco Cloud Partner Program.
This designation recognizes Force 3's ability to sell and deploy Cisco's end to-end cloud solutions for their customers. As a Cisco designated Cloud Builder Partner, Force 3 has met the required competencies across all cloud infrastructure components (security, networking, compute, storage and virtualization solutions), cloud management applications and a formal cloud professional services practice.
"Virtualization is the foundation for cloud. Our Data Center Practice was built around virtualization, elastic computing and scale out storage. Having proven data center, networking and security solutions, moving into the cloud builder space is a natural progression for us," said Sudhir Verma, Vice President of Consulting Services and Project Management Office at Force 3. "We are very excited about the opportunities that are in front of us and the ability to help our customers meet their mission requirements with our cloud offerings."
The Cisco Cloud Partner Program empowers channel partners to build end-to-end cloud solutions and professional services practices based on Cisco cloud solutions. This program offers training to help channel partners as they enhance their competencies in selling and implementing end-to-end cloud solutions that include Cisco and approved third-party technology partners' solutions in an integrated cloud solution.
