August Schell Expert Receives Highest VMware Certification

August Schell is a leading provider of advanced information technology services, products, and solutions for large government organizations focused in Defense and National Security. Recently, Ron Flax, Director of Virtualization Technologies, achieved VMware’s highest certification; VMware Certified Design Expert - Network Virtualization (VCDX-NV). Ron is one of only 36 certified experts in the world.

“I am thrilled to have achieved this fundamental accreditation. It confirms August Schell’s commitment to being the leading experts in VMware NSX technology,” states Ron. “It is important to be trained in the highest level of network virtualization to demonstrate competency and specialization in this market.”

With over 25 years in IT and consulting, Ron Flax is one of the first globally recognized enterprise-class Virtual Networking Solution Architects in the industry, with unparalleled expertise in world-class VMware vSphere® and VMware NSX™ design skills. He has been with August Schell since 2008.

“We predict a massive explosion of VMware NSX within the coming years,” notes visionary Bill Schell, Founder, CEO and President of August Schell. “We have been strategically preparing ourselves to serve this emerging market. It is disruptive, yet evolutionary in that it coexists with existing networks in its implementation to improve optimization of the software defined data center.”

“As a platform for network virtualization, VMware NSX has broad reach into many areas of enterprise IT, and therefore requires the best of the best from amongst our partners to come together and forge a new IT career path for the rest of the world to embrace,” said Chris McCain, Director of Technical Certification, Networking and Security at VMware. “VMware NSX inserts a fundamental transformation to both the technology underpinnings of tomorrow’s data center, and to IT culture. We commend Ron and the rest of the August Schell team for their leadership in investing in the future of IT for their customers.”

Over the past decade, August Schell has quietly been establishing strategic relationships and preparing itself to sell and service the cornerstone technologies of the Software Defined Data Centers (SDDC); Virtual Compute, Virtual Network, Virtual Storage, and Automated Provisioning.

August Schell’s history with VMware’s premier network virtualization product, NSX, began as a seed investor in a small startup company named Nicira in 2009. In 2012, VMware announced their acquisition of Nicira for $1.26 billion. August Schell remains committed to network virtualization and believes that VMWare has the industry-leading product in this space.
