Attenda Limited, the Always On managed services company, today announced that it has been selected to become a member of the VMware Partner Community for SAP Solutions.
Attenda is the first UK partner to join this community, which VMware has built around partners who can help mutual customers virtualise their SAP environments and share in VMware initiatives focused on SAP.
As a VMware Authorized Consultant (VAC) partner, a founding member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) and an SAP Hosting Partner, Attenda brings to the VMware Partner Community for SAP Solutions a proven track record in the design and deployment of virtualised hosting infrastructures based on the industry-leading VMware virtualisation platform.
Voted VMware EMEA Hosting Partner of the Year at VMworld Europe 2008, Attenda adds the strength and depth of hosting expertise to the program with its growing base of clients who are adopting virtualised hosting environments for their business-critical applications.
Commenting on Attenda joining the VMware Partner Community for SAP Solutions, Christoph Reisbeck, director, SAP alliance for VMware, said, “Attenda's proven SAP track record and commitment to best practices and standards helps ensure the delivery of highly available IT services. With its strong customer base and expertise in VMware virtualisation, Attenda is a valuable addition to the VMware Partner Community for SAP Solutions. Attenda possesses the experience and resources required to deploy VMware-virtualised SAP solutions not only in development and test but in live production environments.”
For SAP users, VMware Infrastructure offers a cost-effective platform for SAP production, pre-production, development and training environments, providing greater flexibility and agility with the additional benefit of economical and reliable disaster recovery.
The new VMware Partner Community for SAP Solutions gives Attenda access to VMware SAP experts and a forum to communicate with other partners in the community. Through its community membership, Attenda will also have access to intellectual property for configuring, architecting, deploying and operating SAP solutions in VMware environments.
Simon Hansford, Vice President of Products & Marketing at Attenda, added, “We provide all of our clients with best practices, people skills and technology to ensure that our environments deliver superior design, transition, operations and service improvement. This provides our SAP clients with confidence in IT certainty and agility for their business.”
