du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), has taken
a leap in the cloud arena by becoming the first cloud provider to be VMware Cloud verified in the Middle East & North
Africa (MENA) region. This accreditation implies du’s ability to support and drive cloud implementation for government
entities and enterprises in the UAE.
“Gaining VMware certification is
a badge of honor and one that boosts our credibility as a dependable enabler of
cloud platform solutions. This not only validates our solutions and expertise;
it enables us to futureproof our offerings to support further transformation
and growth of our client partners in both the government and enterprise sectors,” commented Andrew Ward, Senior Vice
President ICT Products, du.
By becoming a VMware Verified Cloud Provider, du is now listed alongside other
global verified cloud providers such as IBM, Fujitsu and NEC to name a few.
“We’re thrilled that du has
become the first VMware Cloud Certified partner in the MENA region. By bringing
our cloud solutions to a wider audience in the region, du will be able to help
governments and enterprises increase their agility and efficiency by enabling
them to run, manage, connect and protect all of their apps on any cloud,” added Ahmed Auda, Regional Managing
Director METNA at VMware.
As a result of receiving certification, VMware will highlight du’s
deployments of VMware solutions through its cloud provider portal, VMware CIO
blog series, as well as representation in the new VMware Discovery Center – a
state-of-the-art facility at VMware’s Palo Alto campus where customers,
partners and VMware employees collaborate on cloud innovations.
