<p>Dimension Data announced today that it is the recipient of a Cisco Australia and New Zealand Business Partner Conference award for Data Centre Partner of the Year. Cisco unveiled the winners on November 17, 2009 at its business partner conference in Sydney, Australia.</p>
<p>The objective of the National Awards is to recognise exemplary business partners whose actions Cisco would like other partners to model.

<p>"I have the honour and privilege of recognising Dimension Data as a Cisco Australia and New Zealand Business Partner Conference country award winner that leads customers to their next phase of productivity and growth," said Michael Lehmann, director of Business Partner Operations for Cisco Australia and New Zealand. “The Data Centre Partner of the Year award recognises Dimension Data’s performance and accomplishments as a Cisco business partner in 2008.”</p>
<p>“The award is a vindication of the investment we have made in developing our capabilities and client-facing solutions in the data centre space, especially with regards to the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) coalition with partners Cisco, EMC and VMware. We also recognised very early on the impact that the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) would have on the data centre, and we are starting to see reward for our efforts, with significant client interest in adopting this technology,” said George Atrash, General Manager for Connectivity, Dimension Data.</p>
