Ingram Micro (News - Alert) Inc., a wholesale technology distributor and a global leader in supply-chain and mobile device lifecycle services, has been named a Premier VMware Authorized Training Center (VATC).
VMware Authorized Training Centers (VATCs) are training partners carefully selected by VMware to deliver authorized VMware technical training to customers and channel partners.
Thanks to the win, Ingram Micro would now be one of four Premier VATCs within North America and the only provider offering “After Dark” VMware technical training courses and the Public Sector Smart Enablement Program.
According to a press release, Ingram Micro Training also features the entire portfolio of VMware certification training classes inclusive of the popular VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage (V5.5) and the VMware Certified Professional Datacenter Virtualization (VCP5-DV) course curricula.
“As a Premier VATC and leading VMware distributor, Ingram Micro brings together its Advanced Computing Divisions and Ingram Micro Training business unit to provide the resources, support and technology our channel partners need to work better, earn better and ultimately service their customers better using VMware technology,” said Scott Zahl, vice president and general manager, Advanced Computing Division, Ingram Micro U.S, in a statement.
Zahl said that being one of the few authorized by VMware to deliver this unique and advanced training and curriculum speaks volumes to the value and technical expertise found within the Ingram Micro Training BU and Advanced Computing Divisions.
Frank Rauch, vice president, Americas Partner Organization, VMware said that VMware has a strong and successful relationship with Ingram Micro and sees tremendous partner value in Ingram Micro Training and its VMware certified instructors.
“We're pleased to recognize Ingram Micro as a Premier VATC and look forward to building on our mutual success,” said Rauch.Earlier in February, Dell (News - Alert) had announced an enhanced collaboration with Ingram Micro to expand its channel partner program for delivering electronic medical records (EMR) solutions and services to the physician market.
