eGroup Achieves Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization From Cisco


eGroup announced today that it has achieved the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization from Cisco. This specialization recognizes eGroup as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, design and deploy comprehensive Cisco(r) Data Center solutions.

The specialization provides role-based training in three essential areas: Unified Fabric for optimizing data and storage needs; Unified Computing for streamlining data center resources and uniting network, computational, storage and virtualization platforms; and Unified Network Services for advancing the way application delivery and security services are provided in the data center network or computing environment.

"eGroup realizes that this ongoing recognition of our achievement could not be obtained without the focus, commitment, and technical excellence of the combined eGroup and Cisco team – along with the continued investment of our most valued customers," said CEO Mike Carter.

"A lot has changed in the data center architectural landscape over the past few years," says Sales VP Brian Corum, "but one thing that has not changed has been Cisco's commitment to advance their technologies and deliver on customers' business outcomes in this space. And that is why eGroup continues to invest in our partnership with Cisco."

"eGroup's mission is to provide sound, consultative advice to our customers around their business wants, needs and challenges," Corum elaborates, "We deliver and exceed those desired outcomes via our IT solutions customized for customer success, software services, and the cloud. We are pleased to have achieved this specialization for the fifth consecutive year, and we're equally excited to continue sharing our acquired expertise with our base of installed and prospective customers."

The Cisco Channel Partner Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, design and technical talent and then validates their skills through a third-party audit.
