Queensland-based IT services provider, Oper8, has achieved Premier partner status with Brocade.
As part of the partnership, Oper8 will integrate Brocade Network Subscription into its managed and Cloud service delivery model, giving customers access to high-speed networking within an operational-based financial model.
"Today’s IT managers are expected to deploy network solutions that provide full functionality and security into the next decade,” Oper8 managing director, Mike Andrea, said.
"However, traditional purchase models lack the flexibility to adapt on demand.
"Brocade Network Subscription offers a good cost-effective and operational-based financial model that fits within our service delivery structure for delivering as-a-service models to customers, getting away from the big capital expense requirements of traditional systems."
Established in 2012, Oper8 delivers IT managed services, Cloud storage, internet and WAN communications, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to businesses in Australia and New Zealand, targeting a broad range of industries, from the micro business to the enterprise level.
Going forward, Andrea said Oper8 is seeking to attain Elite Partner status in the Brocade Partner Network by the end of 2016.
"Oper8 offers the Brocade Partner Network Program impressive sales and technical skills and expertise that align with our own goals of providing flexible, agile, and value-for-the-money solutions and services,” Brocade A/NZ channel manager, Paul Barge, added.
