TECHNOLOGY consultancy Aegis IT has been awarded the highly-regarded Gold Partner Status by international vendor Veeam Software.
Aegis, which has been a partner of Veeam since 2009, has been awarded the accolade in recognition of its specialist knowledge and provision of virtualisation solutions to the IT company’s nationwide client base.
In order to achieve Veeam’s Gold Partner Status, companies must complete in-depth and specific sales and technical training programmes, as well as maintaining successful results on an on-going basis.
An expert in its field in providing virtualisation solutions, Aegis has worked with well-known companies advising on virtualisation solutions – including Sage, Dundee College, G4S Utility Services, Harper Adams University College and Newcastle College.
Managing and technical director, David McPherson, said: “We are thrilled to have been given Veeam Gold Partner Accreditation. Aegis always strives to partner with industry-leading vendors and we feel the Veeam portfolio of products enhances our offering of virtualisation solutions for customers, enabling them to reap the benefits of our specialist knowledge alongside competitively priced Veeam products.
“It’s been a good year for the company and, when times are tough, recognition is great for helping set you apart from the rest.
We’re looking ahead to 2012 with energy and optimism as our relationships with Veeam and our other associated vendors continue to prosper.”
The company, which has around 20 staff, is hoping to double its turnover to £10m by 2013 and create up to 40 jobs after winning a £250,000 contract with US broadcaster Turner Broadcasting team to provide technology that will help the company reduce its energy costs and operate more efficiently.
Aegis, will also help the broadcaster reduce its impact on the environment by installing the energy-saving equipment at its offices in London, where it streams the hugely popular Ben 10 children’s cartoon to 53 channels around the world.
The technology, which has been developed in the US, records when a company uses most of its energy, so that it can then reduce output during quieter periods.
