MSI Systems Integrators (MSI), a leading comprehensive solution provider of hardware, software and services, has been certified as a VMware Authorized Consulting (VAC) Partner. The new level in partnership with VMware allows MSI to offer VMware-certified consulting services in addition to VMware products. This specialization will enhance MSI’s current value to its clients by providing advanced virtualization design and infrastructure planning services of Intel server solutions.
“The demand for virtualization on Intel servers is growing rapidly and MSI’s partnership with VMware allows us to leverage the best virtualization products with industry-leading consulting services for Intel and VMware solutions,” said Joe Wurtz, Jr., vice president, MSI Open Systems Solutions. “MSI is thrilled to achieve this level of partnership and certification with VMware.”

VAC Partners are required to train and certify their consultants to ensure the highest levels of services and customer satisfaction. As part of the VAC Partnership, MSI consultants can provide the following benefits to clients:

MSI’s systems engineering staff completed the rigorous training required for Authorized Consulting Partner certification. MSI’s certified consultants will assist in providing the necessary resources to help customers build and maintain a virtual infrastructure that maximizes efficiency. For its customers, MSI works to achieve total solutions from a single source in an on demand environment.

“Our goal is to simplify IT for companies whose priority is controlling costs while responding faster,” said Phil Sauvageau, vice president – Solutions and Services. “Implementing the right virtual infrastructure means assessing workloads and customizing the solution to fit the particular need.”
