Logicalis Delivers Increased IT Efficiencies through Virtualization Technologies
Enterprise storage and server virtualization, two of the principal areas where organizations can gain operational efficiency in their data centers, has IT professionals looking for experienced and knowledgeable technology solution providers to guide their initiatives. In a demonstration of its continuing commitment to IT customers, Logicalis (, a global provider of high-performance technology solutions and a recognized leader in virtualization and consolidation technology, today announced that it has earned VMware Premier Partner status under VMwares VIP reseller program.

The designation recognizes Logicalis expertise in server and storage virtualization and consolidation, technologies expected to dominate attention of enterprise and midmarket IT professionals as businesses seek to use scarce technology resources more efficiently. VMware is the global leader in software for industry-standard virtualized desktops and servers.

An international supplier of technology solutions that helps organizations function more efficiently, Logicalis initiated a rigorous engineering and technical training program to earn the Premier Partner status.

Achieving VMware Premier Partner status recognizes the many years of successful virtualization implementations by the Logicalis team in a broad variety of vertical markets and business sizes, said Bob Butcher, Logicalis Business Development Manager. Virtualization can save significant staff and IT infrastructure resources by simplifying IT management and substantially increasing utilization of an organizations IT investments or resources.

Logicalis experience, expertise, and training in virtualization has produced dozens of satisfied customers, such as Mercury Marine, a leading manufacturer of high-performance marine outboard and stern drive engines.

We had a mixed hardware environment growing by 30 to 35 percent a year, requiring more and more management resources and challenging our ability to provide redundancy and ensure uptime, explained Dave Schecher, IT Strategic Planner at Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation. Logicalis completed a thorough assessment of our infrastructure and came up with a virtualization and consolidation plan that includes redundancy, makes much more efficient use of our current resources, and allows us to divert time and resources into strategic IT initiatives rather than simply keeping our systems running. From analysis through implementation, the experience of working with Logicalis on our virtualization and consolidation experience has been tremendously rewarding.

VMware is delighted to recognize the expertise and experience of Logicalis with our Premier Partner designation, said Dean Taccogna, Partner Business Manager, at VMware. Logicalis and VMware have collaborated on a number of projects to make customer data centers more efficient, and we know this tradition of successful customer experiences will continue.
