Thomas Duryea Consulting is expanding its infrastructure portfolio to now include EMC’s new VSPEX Proven Infrastructure.
As an early adopter of the reference architecture, which is comprised of both EMC systems and virtualisation, server, and network technology from EMC alliance partners such as Cisco, Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware, Thomas Duryea will be one of a handful of partners to launch the solution in Australia.
According to Thomas Duryea CEO, Andrew Thomas, the integrator realised VSPEX Proven Infrastructure was a “great fit” for its clients’ IT infrastructure needs after it received an early look at the technology as an EMC Signature partner.
“The collaboration between many of our leading vendor partners such as VMWare, Microsoft, Citrix and Cisco, also means that we can increase value and reduce risk for our clients in scoping and delivering a complete solution,” he said.
Thomas Duryea will be initially launching two VSPEX solutions, with one aimed at the private Cloud and another at end-user computing using vendor products from EMC, VMWare, Microsoft, Cisco and Citrix.
As the integrator has already been delivering solutions from these companies to its customers for some time, Thomas expects that VSPEX will fit well into the company's existing product portfolio.
“It is the validation from the vendors of the product's compatibility, and the tested and proven architecture of the solution set, which now adds additional value to our clients,” he said.
As one of only three Australian launch partners for VSPEX, Thomas sees this as a sign of the company’s relationship with EMC going from strength to strength.
“It is great to be recognised as one of EMC’s top Australian partners, as well as for EMC to recognise Thomas Duryea’s Architectural and Engineering capability to be able to deliver these solutions,” he said.
