The Dell and VMware alliance is focused on a singular goal: to help customers change their world with IT that’s optimized for agility, dynamic response and value. We’ve been helping customers such as Amerijet and Firehost deploy scalable IT solutions, allowing them keep up with business demands and growth. And that’s why we’re so pleased that VMware recognized Dell with the OEM Global Partner of the Year award at VMware Partner Exchange (PEX), VMware’s annual partner event that took place in San Francisco last week. 

The Dell and VMware relationship is built upon a strong history of working together to test, certify and improve solutions that blend VMware technology with Dell hardware, software and services. Together we’ve built mature, tightly integrated solutions at each level of the IT ecosystem while developing a strong global services and sales practice. 

When talking to Dave O’Callaghan, senior vice president, Global Partner Organization at VMware about the PEX awards he said:

“I am pleased to recognize this select group of partners who distinguished themselves at the global level in 2013. VMware is dedicated to educating and equipping our partners with the resources they need to master the new reality of the software defined enterprise that enables more agile delivery of IT services – for organizations of all sizes. We congratulate Dell on winning a Global VMware Partner Network Award and look forward to our continued mutual success in 2014.”
