NextiraOne Germany receives Advanced Data Centre Architecture Specialisation award from Cisco
Certification underlines the company’s comprehensive expertise in Data Centre
Teltow, Germany, 22 May 2012 – The award of Cisco’s architecture specialisation for data centre, newly introduced in 2011, again confirms NextiraOne Germany’s competence in this area of activity. “Cisco has in this way recognised the strong commitment and also the extensive data centre expertise NextiraOne has shown in order to qualify for this award,” said Dr. Frank Nobbe, Cisco Alliance Manager for NextiraOne Germany. “NextiraOne therefore belongs to the select group of German partners, who can be trusted with the task of building data centre infrastructures and the integration of such solutions into existing customer processes.”
Simplicity, flexibility, cost efficiency
Cloud computing and virtualisation technologies are currently transforming the ICT strategies of many companies. Many organisations are looking at their IT and communications landscapes from a different perspective in the light of costs pressures, technological innovations and changing business challenges. “The virtualisation of servers, storage and desktop environments in the data centre is an effective means of achieving optimisation of ICT resources,” said Dr. Bernd Ruppert, CEO of NextiraOne Germany. “The goal is a simplified, more flexible, more powerful and more cost-efficient infrastructure.” For this, a holistic approach to data centre architecture is required – from computing and storage, network and applications to management. In order to achieve the desired efficiency gains, building a private cloud will provide a suitable technology platform into which real-time communications can be integrated.

NextiraOne provides support in the choice of the right cloud architecture and ensures the deployment of high performance network infrastructures and services.
