Westcon-Comstor Southern Africa expands data centre practice with addition of VMware

Johannesburg, 09 Feb 2016

To help Southern Africa solution providers improve time to revenue and accelerate growth opportunities, Westcon-Comstor has expanded its Data Centre Practice to include VMware's portfolio of cloud infrastructure and business mobility solutions in South Africa.

This expanded agreement supports partners with pre- and post-sales support, technical support, as well as logistics services from 60 offices across six continents. Partners also gain access to Westcon Academy's unparalleled range of technical programmes, both certified and non-certified, designed to educate their staff, expand capabilities and keep them ahead of their competition.

"Through this extended SADC agreement with VMware (which now covers South Africa) our partners are better positioned to help businesses more efficiently transition to the cloud and leverage workload mobility more securely across multiple data centre sites," said Louise Taute, Comstor Director, Southern Africa. "VMware's unique approach to the data centre gives their customers a 'one-cloud, any-application, any-device' architecture that unifies private, managed and public clouds into one hybrid solution."
