Virtustream Executives Stand Out Among Most Accredited Technical Industry Experts By Earning VMware VCDX Certification

Virtustream, Inc. a privately held infrastructure services firm, today announced that two senior executives have earned the coveted VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) certification. Sean Jennings, vice president, managed services and Matt Theurer, vice president, professional services were two of the first five technology professionals welcomed into the elite group of architects leading virtualization implementations around the world.

VCDX is an advanced certification developed for design architects of enterprise deployments running on the VMware platform. Those who earn this certification have demonstrated their expertise in virtualization and their ability to design and architect a virtualization strategy while considering the entire data center and a company’s business needs.

In addition to holding VMware Certified Professional (VCP) certifications on VMware vSphere™ 4 and its prior versions, each expert has taken the extra steps of passing both the Enterprise Administration Exam and the Design Exam, as well as successfully defending a VMware infrastructure design and implementation plan.

Leveraging nearly a decade of virtualization expertise from Jennings, Theurer and other executives, Virtustream is helping its clients actualize the enterprise cloud by delivering unique cloud computing solutions backed by world-class service level agreements.

“Virtustream executives Matt Theurer and Sean Jennings have proved to the VMware certification evaluation board that they both are more than qualified to design and architect a datacenter infrastructure based on the VMware platform, and we would recommend them as expert resources for customers looking to optimize their IT environments,” Enis Konuk, Vice President, WW Technical Services , VMware.

To ensure efficient adoption and utilization of cloud computing, Virtustream delivers a host of professional services for strategy and integration spanning all the layers of virtualization. Matt Theurer has been designing and deploying IT solutions for 20 years, architecting IT solutions to solve real world challenges for companies ranging in size from tens of users to tens of thousands of users. He was one of the first individuals ever certified on the VMware platform and holds many industry certifications from Cisco, EMC and Microsoft.

Sean Jennings has expanded Virtustream’s network of industry partners to offer clients a variety of options for application hosting, utilizing tools from industry leading vendors and Virtustream’s own unique cloud platform. Jennings has more than 20 years of experience enabling commercial and government enterprises of all sizes to gain efficiencies and competitive advantage through the design and deployment of creative, forward-looking IT solutions. He has earned numerous certifications from Checkpoint, EMC, HP/Compaq/DEC, Microsoft, Novell and VMware.

“Virtualization and cloud computing offer many benefits to customers,” said Kevin Reid, chief executive officer of Virtustream. “But these benefits cannot be achieved simply by flipping a switch. Datacenter infrastructure design takes careful planning, and the VCDX training from VMware teaches architects how best to plan out a major datacenter deployment project. The VCDX certification is just one example of the deep expertise Virtustream provides its clients. We're extremely proud of Matt and Sean – this is a significant honor and a validation of their efforts to be on the forefront of cloud computing and next generation datacenter strategies.”
