Leading enterprise IT services provider Aptronics recently attended the 2016 Veeam Partner Summit, held at The Marion on Nicol in Johannesburg. At the event, Aptronics walked away with the prestigious Most Significant Enterprise Project award. Previously at the 2014 inaugural awards, they won the Enterprise Partner of the Year award. This Project Award recognises and rewards the partner with the best performance in the enterprise space.
Aptronics was also runner up in the Highest Growth category. Gregg Petersen, Regional Director MEA and SAARC for Veeam Software, says: “Aptronics sees the value that Veeam brings to its customers’ environments. It knows the importance of customers having an always-on business, and keeping up to date with modern solutions for their infrastructure.”
Aptronics has a strong partnership with Veeam that has stood the test of time. Partners have to fulfil a number of criteria to win awards at the ceremony. These criteria include a combination of revenue growth, sales, technical certification and the quality of the implementation of products within the marketplace.
Mark Perry, Aptronics Business Development Director, commented on the company’s success: “Aptronics has dominated the virtualisation industry awards over the last number of years. We see Veeam solutions as complementary to our own service offerings. Our focus is to partner with our customers on their journey towards a next generation datacentre, and Veeam forms an integral part of the total solution offering.
“Customers want technologies that are powerful and easy to use, yet simple to manage, and Veeam delivers on this,” Perry continues. “An organisation’s data management is critical to its success and Veeam’s solutions provide powerful, easy to use backup, recovery and replication, saving time, mitigating risk, and managing costs. Veeam’s leading technology, partnered with Aptronics’ professional services, ensures that we’re consistently able to deliver real business value and a great customer experience.”
