DataposIT Achieves VMware Cloud Verified Status

DataposIT has today announced its achievement of VMware Cloud Verified status. DataposIT is the first company in East Africa to achieve this feat. The certification is awarded to partners who have met all requirements to offer cloud-based services running on a complete VMware cloud infrastructure.

“With VMware Cloud verified status, DataposIT is able to help clients migrate to cloud, hassle free and cost effectively” says Kariuki Kinyanjui, CEO, DataposIT. “We are seeing workloads being moved from public cloud. Public cloud is failing to live up to expectations of medium sized and large enterprises especially due to costs, unpredictable billing models, data security and legal and regulatory compliance to industry data laws.”

He goes on to add, “We are also seeing increased interest for hybrid cloud, by mid-sized and large enterprises in this region, whose demand is driven by factors such as cost, security, availability, performance and compliance.”

DataposIT has been working on cloud technology that offers an easy way for enterprises to transition to working from the cloud. As a result, they are able to guide clients to go for the right solutions because of the flexibility offered and the assurance of a high-performance solution. Cost being a major factor, the VMware Cloud Verified Status attained by DataposIT, points to its ability to setup multi-cloud strategies for clients. This will deliver seamless integration and interoperability with on-premise data-centres or even branch offices. This means that clients are able to run apps from whichever cloud or from their data centres and securely deliver the same to their mobile users.

DataposIT has, over the years, built expertise around the setting up and management of private clouds and has seamlessly transitioned this skill to assist, selectively and with precision, client to place workloads on the cloud that makes the most sense at any particular point in time.

In following best practice, DataposIT is delivering a solution that helps clients attain improved time to market for their innovations, giving them the competitive advantage in their respective industries. Even more critical, at a time that data is being accessed from anywhere in the world, enterprises are having to deal with unprecedented security and resourcing challenges. Countries are passing data protection laws and compliance requirements especially for organisations in the financial and health sector. DataposIT is able to assure enterprise data protection and compliance to industry regulations and best practice so that they can focus on their core business with peace of mind.

Through a VMware Cloud Verified partner a customer can access the full set of VMware Cloud Infrastructure capabilities including integration and interoperability, cost optimisation and flexibility. Cloud partners who are verified offer a complete cloud and infrastructure as-a-service and assist customers achieve unmatched levels of consistency, performance and interoperability for both traditional or containerised enterprise applications. All with the confidence that the service is based on the most advanced VMware cloud technologies.

“Partners that are VMware Cloud Verified provide organisations with complete and advanced VMware Cloud technologies, along with interoperability across clouds for greater advantage for their customers’ businesses,” says Lee Syse, Senior Cloud Solutions Architect Cloud Providers, Sub-Saharan Africa, VMware. “Cloud Verified services delivered by VMware Cloud Providers can provide the efficiency, agility and reliability inherent in cloud computing. We look forward to supporting DataposIT as it empowers organisations with a simple and flexible path to the cloud.”

VMware’s global network of cloud providers leverages VMware’s consistent cloud infrastructure to offer a wide array of services in over 120 countries, provide geographic and industry specialisation, and help customers meet complex regulatory requirements.
