Dimension Data has paired up with Microsoft’s consulting division, Microsoft Services, with each signing a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ to offer private cloud solutions to enterprise customers.
The solutions will be based on Dimension Data’s onecloud offering, developed specifically for the Microsoft platform.
Bill Padfield, CEO, Dimension Data APAC, says a recent Gartner survey found cloud computing was a leading priority for CIOs.
"This is a strategic partnership to Dimension Data where we leverage Microsoft’s platforms and sales channel to rapidly enable private cloud implementations for clients.”
Michiel Verhoeven, vice president of Microsoft Services, APAC & Japan, says the partnership will help customers enjoy the benefits of cloud computing sooner rather than later.
"We chose to partner with Dimension Data in the Asia Pacific region because they are a forward-looking and experienced systems integrator with a proven track record of successful implementations.”
