Commensus are proud to announce that our Secure Cloud Platform has achieved VMware vCloud Powered status, demonstrating that our cloud services are underpinned by VMware’s leading virtualization and hybrid cloud computing technology. Commensus is now listed in the top UK virtualisation service providers to have obtained this accreditation which sets us apart from our competitors. Speaking at The Connaught Hotel yesterday Justin Olivier from VMware said, “...partners like Commensus are helping to deliver a hybrid cloud that reduces costs, improves security and helps to increase agility and automation. That’s why they’ve been awarded the vCloud Powered badge, our highest standard for service providers.”
As a member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), we’re now able to deliver a set of cloud computing services across our secure cloud platform, supporting the largest set of existing applications and offering distinctive application mobility uniquely available from VMware.
“We’re delighted to be awarded the vCloud Powered status from VMware. This confirms Commensus as a leading virtualisation and cloud computing specialist within EMEA. We’re forecasting exponential growth over the next year and we are pleased to partner with VMware” said Steve Pailthorpe, Head of Marketing at Commensus. “Gartner is forecasting significant growth in the Hybrid Cloud space throughout 2012 and our partnership with VMware helps us deliver cutting edge, third generation Hybrid technology to our customers.”
Commensus sought VMware vCloud Powered validation in order to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to delivering a third generation of cloud computing, known as the Hybrid Cloud. Utilising VMware’s vCloud Director, Commensus can now help customers to leverage their existing IT assets to increase agility and performance. As a validated service provider, we can now provide users with enhanced responsiveness and reduced IT costs through increased consolidation, task automation and simplified management.
“The VMware vCloud Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape,“ said Gavin Jackson EMEA Director at VMware. “We look forward to supporting Commensus further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
