They understand Akorri’s value proposition and believe we can help their customers adopt VMware faster. Expert Server Group understands that a storage solution is more than just its hardware and software components. They focus on our customers’ entire IT infrastructure. The company has a strong relationship with VMware as one of its first channel partners and has won many virtualization awards and accolades over the past 5 years.”

“Gibraltar Solutions concentrates on IT infrastructure design and implementation, with a strong virtualization practice. They were an early VMware partner, so they truly understand how BalancePoint can help VMware customers resolve performance problems and improve service levels,” continues Riddle. “Lumen21 specializes in helping clients architect infrastructure solutions and assist them in the area of professional services particularly in integration. Long View Systems has strong storage and virtualization practices and has strong relationships with many of Akorri’s partners. In fact, they were VMware’s Partner of the Year for the Americas. Finally, ProSys was recently cited at VMworld 2007 as VMware’s Market Maker partner for the US.”
