NetApp's best performing partners were honoured for their achievements over the past year at the vendor's recent Partner Summit.
Expanse IT was awarded Partner of the Year for Western Australia, while Dimension Data received Partner of the Year in Victoria. XSI Data Solutions picked up the same award for NSW/ACT and Queensland geographies. The inaugural awards ceremony took place during a gala dinner.
"We wanted to reward partners and their growth and hopefully spur on others to aspire and compete to be the leader in their geography next year," NetApp director of partner and public sector sales, Scott Morris, said. "There was certainly a competitive streak in the air, but in a positive way."
XSI Data Solutions Queensland state manager, Bob Logan, said its awards were indicative of the success it had experienced through its NetApp partnership. "The engagement with NetApp so far is looking very strong and we have gained a lot by working together," he said.
