It’s clear that, as a team, we put a lot of effort into positioning F5 within Datacentrix, and have also invested into broadening the Datacentrix F5 skills base.
“Reaching Platinum status has always been our main goal and with this achievement now in place, we are in an excellent position to assist in growing the F5 business from strength to strength within South Africa.”
Says Linsay Narayanan, Channel Account Manager – Sub Saharan Africa: “F5 Networks strongly values its relationship with all partners; this was one of the driving influences behind the F5 Unity+ Partner Program.
