The organisation holds a Platinum Partner HPE accreditation, and is also a Platinum Hybrid IT and HPE Pointnext partner, a Gold HPE Pointnext Services partner, and an Aruba Platinum partner with ClearPass Policy Management competencies.

This year's award ceremony saw Datacentrix walk away with two Aruba awards, namely Aruba Elite Partner of the Year and Aruba Partner Sales Champion. This follows the company's recognition as 'African Partner of the Year' by Aruba late last year.

"The Elite Partner of the Year award recognises the substantial investment that Datacentrix has made over the past year, ensuring that our team is always up to date with the latest in Aruba certifications, and acknowledges the biggest and best Aruba support structure in South Africa. It also draws attention to Datacentrix's local installed base and revenue gains," explains Tony de Sousa, enterprise business unit manager at Datacentrix. "The second accolade was awarded to Datacentrix technical specialist for networks, Marc van der Poll, as the brand's greatest local champion."

In addition, Datacentrix was named as 'HPE Compute Partner of the Year' based on its server sales strength, while Franz Pienaar, enterprise technical consultant at Datacentrix, received the title of 'HPE HiT Service Delivery Engineer of the Year' for his exemplary work on a high-availability, fault-tolerant system that was not only demonstrated at a popular local mining conference, but has also become a test case for HPE, with a related white paper.

"These awards stand testament to Datacentrix's dedication to and investment in the HPE brand within South Africa," De Sousa adds. "We will continue to focus on this strategic partnership for Datacentrix with the same vigour and commitment into the future."
