Abacus Systems extends partnership with local distributor Commtech

Abacus Systems, one of Ireland’s leading independent computer network integration companies, today announces it has achieved the position of Enterprise Solution Provider with VMware, the global leader in virtualisation solutions.  Abacus Systems has completed its competency training in Infrastructure Virtualisation in February and was awarded with the Infrastructure Virtualisation Enterprise Solution Provider status by Commtech, the Irish distributor for VMware in Ireland.

Abacus Systems is one of the few Enterprise Solution Provider partners to specialise exclusively in VMware for its virtualisation solution.

Derek O’Callaghan, managing director of Abacus Systems, comments:  “We evaluated the different flavours of virtualisation when the technology first emerged some years ago.  From the very beginning we were impressed by VMware above all other contenders.  The company’s knowledge and breadth of solution is far more advanced, technically superior and commercial applicable than competing brands.

“We find our customers can benefit immediately from this technology and have already successfully installed the across a range of industry sectors.”

The VMware partner network last year introduced partners to the tools they need to assist their customers gain long term competitive advantage for their virtualisation practices.  Abacus Systems has already achieved Enterprise Solution Provider Status and is also working on further elective competencies, including critical Business Continuity.

Justin Owens, managing director of Commtech, the exclusive distributor of VMware in Ireland says: “Abacus Systems is a very experienced company with a long and proven track record in providing excellent service to its customer base.  The company’s decision to concentrate on just one virtualisation solution will stand it in good stead, allowing the engineers and analysts the opportunity to specialise in VMware technologies and be experts in this field.

“We believe the VMware Partner Network is important as it provides validation for companies that are prepared to invest time, money and training in their people which in turn provides their customers with the most up to date and expert solutions possible.”

VMware has established new designations of expertise that allow customers to identify partners with VMware virtualization solution knowledge and experience. VMware solution competencies enable partners to extend market reach, align business with VMware marketing initiatives and drive deeper into customer engagements. VMware partners are able to accelerate their expertise, profitability and market opportunity by earning one or more VMware solution competency. Partners are able to earn competencies in four areas: infrastructure virtualization, business continuity, desktop virtualization and virtualization management.
