Cisco announced today that TBL Networks, Inc. has met the requirements and criteria necessary to earn the Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization, the pinnacle data center partner certification available from Cisco.
Achieving the Cisco Data Center Architecture Specialization demonstrates a partner’s expert knowledge in selling, designing, installing, and supporting the Cisco Unified Data Center Architecture, a complete platform for delivering IT as a service within an organization. Cisco’s Unified Data Center includes products and solutions in three critical areas: Unified Management, Unified Fabric, and Unified Computing. Cisco avoids the complexity of a converged infrastructure through an innovative data center architecture designed specifically to support virtualization in the data center. Cisco Unified Data Center provides outstanding performance across physical and virtualized resources, cost efficiency through elimination of silos and simplification of deployment and operating tasks, fast deployment of a highly secure, proven infrastructure to support new business initiatives, and a broad range of storage, virtualization, application, and management alliance partners.
“TBL Networks is extremely proud to be recognized as a Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialized Partner,” said Alan Sears, President and CEO of TBL Networks, Inc. “This certification not only recognizes our success in delivering unmatched solutions through the most talented expertise in Central Virginia, but also recognizes our commitment to providing our clients with outstanding customer service.”
TBL Networks is home to Central Virginia’s only VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) and two EMC Technical Architects. In 2011, two TBL data center engineers were recognized as 2011 VMware vExperts.
