Leipzig, 17.02.2012 – The COMPAREX Group has been named the EMEA recipient of two VMware Partner Network Awards in the categories Infrastructure Virtualization Partner of the Year and Government Partner of the Year by VMware. The awards were presented at VMware Partner Exchange 2012, VMware’s annual partner event, on Feb. 14 in Las Vegas, Nev. The awards once more confirm the COMPAREX Group’s leading role in virtualization and cloud solutions based on VMware technologies. In 2011, COMPAREX was presented with the VMware EMEA Infrastructure Virtualization Competency Award.
“With these two awards VMware acknowledges once more our early and ongoing investments into VMware technology and our long-lasting and successful partnership,” said Dr. Klaus Elsbacher, CEO COMPAREX Group. “I am proud that our consultant and sales teams across EMEA and beyond are highly skilled not only in the VMware core business server virtualization, but have also proven themselves as early adopters and terrific messengers in emerging segments of VMware such as cloud computing, system management and desktop virtualization where we see VMware as one of the key vendors in our portfolio. I truly feel and appreciate that the relationship between VMware and the COMPAREX Group is not only a co-operation, but a deep, intense and strategic partnership. We will do our best to grow our No. 1 VMware Reseller position in EMEA in 2012 and also branch out to new markets and customers.”
