In case you missed it, we had ourselves quite an amazing few days at the Channel Partners Conference and Expo in Las Vegas this year! On the heels of being recognized as the largest aggregator of Cisco Powered cloud services, we were honored with the 2015 Distribution Partner of the Year Award from Peak 10, National IT infrastructure and Cisco Powered cloud services provider.
Steve Harris, senior vice president of national alliances for Peak 10, had this to say in regards to our partnership:
“We are very fortunate to work with an industry leader like AVANT,” Harris said. “The value of this partnership continues to grow as we extend the reach of our expertise and portfolio of services, particularly in disaster recovery and cloud computing solutions, to more companies across the U.S.”
Our President, Drew Lydecker, stated that “It’s an honor to have achieved Peak 10’s Distribution Partner of the Year award and we look forward to even more joint success in the year ahead.”
That joint success will continue in 2016 in no small part because of AVANT’s aggressive expansion in the aggregation of Cisco Powered cloud services. Cisco Powered cloud services allow AVANT partners to deliver business outcomes to enterprise customers through hybrid cloud solutions. These include infrastructure-as-a- service, disaster recovery as a service, hosted collaboration, desktop as a service and many more.
Peak 10’s Steve Harris understands the significance of this: “As a leading Cisco Powered Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider, and the first in the Americas to offer Cisco Powered Disaster Recovery as a Service, our partnership with AVANT, the largest Cisco Powered Cloud Aggregator, is a natural fit,” said Harris.
