IT distributor Tech Data Corp. has expanded its relationship with Cisco, achieving certification as a Cisco Advanced Technology Distributor for the Cisco Unified Computing System (ATD-UCS).
“As the Cisco Solutions Group at Tech Data continues to focus on new opportunities to expand our Data Center practice, we are capitalizing on market growth through this next level of certification, which provides new opportunities for our channel partners,” states Angie Beltz, Tech Data’s vice president of Cisco Solutions Group.
The new ATD-UCS certification builds on Tech Data’s certification as a Cisco UCS B-Series Authorized Configurator (UBAC) achieved in October 2012. This enabled Tech Data to configure, assemble and test pre-built Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers, helping solution providers and value added resellers (VARs) accelerate the delivery of data center solutions.
To earn the Cisco ATD-UCS certification, Tech Data had to deliver $5 million of UCS BTO business through the configuration center with no customer satisfaction issues.
