TEMPEST Has Cisco Unified Computing System Competence Centre
Bratislava (9 July 2012) – TEMPEST is the only company in Slovakia with a competence centre for next generation data centre technologies – Unified Computing System (UCS) by Cisco. Customers can therefore test possibilities offered by this technology in a real environment and with no further cost.
TEMPEST is also the first company in Slovakia to be awarded a specialisation Cisco Advanced Unified Computing Technology. When establishing the competence centre TEMPEST used their know-how not only in the field of IT structures integration, operation and administration but also in the field of providing complex end-to-end services. TEMPEST has thus added another platform of a strong technology partner to its server infrastructure portfolio.
In order to create a competence centre we had to invest in hardware necessary in a technologic laboratory, train specialists, obtain necessary certificates and meet all other strict criteria defined by Cisco.
“We have been in collaboration with Cisco for a long time. As for IT infrastructures and security we can provide experience based on a number of projects to our customers and dispose of quality competences across platforms of all major producers. The competence centre confirms our leading position in developing, managing and administrating large IT infrastructures. Besides finding a strong technology partner our customers also get the possibility to test Cisco UCS technology in a live environment,” observes Roman Kriško, Business Manager and a member of the TEMPEST Board of Directors on behalf of the establishment of the centre.
“Customer solutions based on Cisco Unified Computing System platform are a key issue for Cisco. We see a great potential in them as well as a possibility to respond to the growing demands of our customers in the area of data centres and virtualisation,” says Vladimír Mlynárčik, Business Manager for Commercial Customers and Distribution Channel, Cisco Slovakia. "One of the decisive success factors with these solutions is quality and competent system integrator with a team of trained technical specialists and traders. TEMPEST belongs to the best companies in Slovakia in this regard. By establishing a competence centre with Cisco Unified Computing technologies both TEMPEST and our company have gained a unique opportunity to demonstrate these technologies to our customers, to simulate various industrial platforms and test – together with our customers – specific requirement scenarios for server environment,” adds V. Mlynárčik.
