Magirus, the European IT solutions provider, has announced the launch of its Veeam Accreditation Academy. The Academy will assist resellers to exploit the market for virtualisation management. The Academy is a series of free one day, partner training enablement seminars in the UK to help resellers to reach ProPartner certifications announced recently by Veeam the innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual data centre environments.
During 2010, Veeam saw an increase in its licenses of 133% due to the strength of its products meeting the demand for virtualisation back up and management. Magirus believes this market represents a significant opportunity for resellers to help their customers further reduce costs from virtualisation while increasing the efficiency of their IT resources. As a result, Magirus' Veeam Accreditation Academy will run a series of free seminars for resellers across the UK to develop Veeam virtualisation management skills. The one day, classroom-based courses for both technical and sales reseller representatives, will train and support them to take Veeam's Gold and EMS ProPartner online certification exam.
Denise Bryant, UK managing director at Magirus said, "Virtualisation management is an opportunity for resellers to consult with their customers to gain greater business benefits and cost reduction from the next wave of virtualisation technologies. Veeam provides a solution for the customer as well as opening the door to higher-value service and margin opportunities for resellers." Bryant continued, "We want to help new and existing Veeam partners to build skills to differentiate in their chosen markets."
Ian Wells, Northern EMEA regional director, Veeam Software added, "The Academy represents an extra layer of value from Magirus by providing resellers with a fast track to skill up for our Gold and EMS ProPartner virtualisation management certification. Wells concluded, "This will give end customers higher-quality skills and implementation resources, allowing them to get the most from virtualisation management. Also, it will widen the scope for resellers to develop stronger customer relationships and ultimately the chance to win more business."
Magirus' Veeam Accreditation Academy will run during April and May in Bracknell and Leeds.
