Packing My Bags For Prague and Dimension Data #Perspectives2015

Prague is a beautiful city!  My last time was in June 2010 when Jeremy Geelan invited me to speak at CloudExpo Europe (see my blog post and video from that trip at “CloudExpo Europe 2010: Not Your Father’s Prague“). And yes, that is the same Jeremy Geelan that is currently enduring the terrible earthquakes in Nepal (see my recent post on that in “Tweeps Are People Too!!“)

This time I get to go there to learn more about Dimension Data. If you don’t know about this global cloud service provider you really should look them up. Although Gartner evaluated them as a niche player in the 2014 Cloud Computing Magic Quadrant 2014, their so-called “niche” is enterprise hybrid cloud and they are very, very good at that niche!

Dimension Data, a subsidiary of NTT Group, has a reputation for consistent performance. Their large presence in Japan, the US, the UK, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, and South Africa gives them an unique ability to address the public and private global cloud computing platform requirements of enterprises in the US$1B-US$5B revenue range.  They also deliver these services from a single, unified architecture, the Managed Cloud Platform (MCP).

Recently this “niche” player has been honored as the Cisco Services Partner of the Year, garnering Cisco regional awards from the Americas, Asia, Australia, Europe and MEA (Middle East & Africa)! The company is also globally certified by SAP for cloud, hosting and SAP HANA, which delivers an unequaled ability to deploy hybrid SAP models that run on Dimension Data’s private MCP within the client’s data center. Not to be out done, EMC has also announced a high performance unified storage alliance with Dimension Data that is based on EMC’s VNX storage technology. These are quite impressive accomplishments for a “niche player”!

At #Perspectives2015 I will find out more about this global provider, passing what I learn to my followers through Twitter. If you’re going to also be in Prague, please let me know!

Big shoutout to my Prague Tweeps!
