- When: 03 December 2018
Linxdatacenter has been named the Partner of the Year by Cisco Capital in Russia and the CIS countries (the RCIS region).
The title was granted to Linxdatacenter during the annual Cisco Partner Summit 2018 award ceremony that took place in Las Vegas on 15-18 November 2018.
Cisco Capital is a financial company founded by Cisco Systems Inc. to support projects based on the Cisco equipment. Today Cisco Capital operates in more than 100 countries worldwide, and total value of its assets amounts to $8 billion. Cisco Capital has been providing its services in Russia about 15 years and occupies one of the leading positions in the market of IT-focused financial services. The company has approximately 3,000 registered partners in Russia.
Cisco Capital awards are conferred per region on the annual basis and distributed in more than ten major directions: solutions for small and large businesses, data center solutions, network projects, Wi-Fi and telephony segments etc. One winner per each nomination is determined in every region. Linxdatacenter is the only Cisco partner carrying such an award today in Russia and the CIS countries.
Sales statistics of the previous financial year is the key criterion of the award. Linxdatacenter ensured its victory due to implementation of the project based on the Cisco HyperFlex hyper-converged platform for a large online retail company.
“Not many companies in Russia use services of Cisco Capital because world practices of effective financing of IT projects are yet to be fully implemented in our country. At the same time Cisco equipment supply and payment schemes offered by Cisco Capital allow us to provide most advanced DC-based IT services on terms equally beneficial to the vendor, IT service provider and the end user. Success on the contemporary IT market is determined not just by technical base but also by the ability to properly engage its potential with available financial tools. It enables timely supply, assembly, setup and launch of IT solutions for commercial use. Linxdatacenter ensures high level of its staff’s end-to-end expertise in Cisco solutions, from engineers and network specialists to project and sales managers. This award is the anticipated result of our systematic development of up-to-date infrastructure and deployment of advanced cloud services on its basis,” comments Olga Sokolova, General Director Linxdatacenter Russia.
Earlier in 2018 Linxdatacenter has received the status of Cisco Reseller with Data Center specialization, in addition to the existing status of Cisco Advanced Cloud and Managed Services Provider.
New award confirms that Cisco is the key partner of Linxdatacenter on private cloud infrastructure projects based on the convergent (FlexPod) and hyper-converged (HyperFlex) platforms for DC customers.
