In 2019, WWT achieved Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) designation from Cisco. The designation recognizes that our talented team of Cisco certified engineers has fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure products and solutions. You can read the complete press release here.
Participation in the Cisco ACI ATP Program allows us to offer customers a new data center architecture designed to simplify operations and greatly reduce provision time through automation for their applications.
There are no doubt other partners who have ACI ATP status but none of them have our Advanced Technology Center (ATC) and Integration Centers. This is our differentiation from other Gold Certified Cisco partners. The ATC is where our customers enjoy hands-on access to Cisco expertise, solutions and services in networking, data center, security, collaboration, big data and the Internet of Things. At the ATC, we perform complex proofs of concept using Cisco technology, conduct Cisco authorized training and provide demonstrations across Cisco’s entire product portfolio. Customers also use the ATC for Lab as a Service (LaaS) to conduct their own experiments and perform actions that would be difficult to do in a live environment. The Integration Centers provide a wide array of services to customers including rack-and-stack, integration, testing and more to allow easier and faster installation upon delivery.
Congrats to our team and please let us know when you can come into the ATC to perform your own ACI proof-of-concept with our Cisco certified engineers.
