F5 Unity Gold partnerJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – JOHANNEBSURG Stock Exchange-listed Datacentrix has attained Gold UNITY Partner certification with F5 Networks, the market leader in application delivery, one of only two local companies to hold this level of accreditation.
Prerequisites to join the F5 UNITY Partner Programme include extensive experience within market areas, well-trained sales and technical staff, in-depth experience selling related products, a sizeable client base, financial stability, and an excellent reputation within the marketplace.
F5 recently made the decision to rationalise the number of channel partners it had in place, placing a stronger focus on higher calibre partners.
“In line with this more targeted strategy, we are pleased to welcome Datacentrix to the UNITY Partner Programme,” says Simon McCullough, major channel account manager: Sub Saharan Africa at F5 Networks.
In order to reach F5 Gold UNITY partner status, a company must have a minimum of two certified engineers in place as well as maintaining the requisite sales accreditations.
Datacentrix has already demonstrated its commitment to F5, going beyond this requirement to certify four technical staff members.
Executives say this certification demonstrates Datacentrix’ allegiance to F5 and the growth of the joint business.
“We look forward to deepening this partnership, providing improved, more comprehensive support to South African clients,” says Chris Pretorius, Cisco business unit manager at Datacentrix.
