NEW YORK & LONDON & HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Options Technology, the leading Capital Markets services provider, today announced the achievement of VMware Cloud Verified status in NJ2 Weehawken.
The accomplishment follows the VMware Cloud Provider Principal Partner Status awarded to the firm last year, along with Cloud Verified status at PRDC, LHC, LD4 and NY5 sites.
Cloud Verification assures that a partner is validated to expertly deliver cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service across VMware’s best-in-class network, storage, and compute solutions to meet individual client needs specifically.
It also enables customers to achieve unmatched levels of consistency, performance, and interoperability for traditional and containerised enterprise applications based on the most advanced VMware cloud technologies.
Options President and CEO Danny Moore said, “Options has a long history of providing a range of VMware Cloud infrastructure and services to clients across the global capital markets. As the fourth certification in recent months, the successful extension of our cloud verified status in NJ2 is a further demonstration of the secure, reliable and efficient technology that underpins our growing portfolio of cloud-agnostic services.
As our cloud business continues to evolve and expand into new regions and territories, we look forward to the next phase of partnership with VMware and the continued rollout of service excellence, capability and choice for our customers.”
Today’s news comes as the latest in a series of strategic announcements for Options, including its eighth Microsoft Gold Partner status, hosting capabilities in Aruba IT3 Bergamo, and the launch of its Quantify and Data Store products.
In 2019, Options received investment from Boston-based Private Equity Firm Abry Partners. This investment has enabled Options to accelerate its growth strategy and develop its technology platform while expanding its global reach in key financial centres.
