Gregg Ambulos, EMC senior vice president of global channel sales, says he's impressed with the calibre of EMC partners in ANZ.

“It is really exciting to see the innovative projects and solutions our partners in ANZ are working on with their customers,” he says.

“Australia and New Zealand [are] paving the way for the rest of the world in terms of virtualisation, which is opening up exciting opportunities for our partners and customers moving towards the software-defined data centre.”
