du becomes first VMware Verified Cloud provider in the MENA region
With this accreditation, du will support and drive VMware Cloud implementation for government entities and enterprises in the UAE
du has become the first cloud provider to be VMware Cloud-verified in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region. The accreditation confirms du’s ability to support and drive VMware Cloud implementation for government entities and enterprises in the UAE.
Andrew Ward, senior vice president ICT Products, du, said, “Gaining VMware certification is a badge of honour and one that boosts our credibility as a dependable enabler of cloud platform solutions. This not only validates our solutions and expertise; it enables us to futureproof our offerings to support further transformation and growth of our client partners in both the government and enterprise sectors.”
By becoming a VMware Verified Cloud Provider, du is now listed alongside other global verified cloud providers such as IBM, Fujitsu and NEC to name a few.
Ahmed Auda, regional managing director METNA at VMware, said: “We’re thrilled that du has become the first VMware Cloud Certified partner in the MENA region. By bringing our cloud solutions to a wider audience in the region, du will be able to help governments and enterprises increase their agility and efficiency by enabling them to run, manage, connect and protect all of their apps on any cloud.”
As a result of receiving certification, VMware will highlight du’s deployments of VMware products through its cloud provider portal, VMware CIO blog series, as well as representation in the new VMware Discovery Center – a state-of-the-art facility at VMware’s Palo Alto campus where customers, partners and VMware employees collaborate on cloud innovations.
