ANS Group’s Double Award win at Cisco Partner Summit


ANS Group have once again snagged the Cisco Data Centre and Virtualisation Partner of the Year award, repeating the 2011 win thanks to the company’s continued commitment to Cisco and data centre technologies.

The Cisco Partner Summit, held this year in Boston, MA, is a chance for key Cisco partners to hear the latest technology news and developments, network with colleagues and together look forward to the future of Cisco. The Summit includes a renowned awards ceremony which recognises the outstanding performance of partners in various categories – and when up against all other UKI partners, ANS Group emerged as the clear frontrunner of data centre and virtualisation technologies.

ANS’ Data Centre solution Infrastructure 3.0, – a combination of Cisco, VMware and NetApp technology – has revolutionised the infrastructure scene and its success shows no signs of slowing down. The efficient, streamlined solution has led to ANS’ reputation as a UK leader and has seen the company to 80% year-on-year growth and £47m turnover.

ANS’ knowledge and expertise remains unparalleled in the industry and the win is a welcome recognition of the company’s continued success across the public and private sectors. ANS has over 600 customers in various markets and has developed a strong standing in the UK for its solutions and services.
The award was presented at the Partner Summit to ANS Chairman and Founder Scott Fletcher and Managing Director Paul Sweeney.

Paul Sweeney said of the award win: “We are undoubtedly thrilled to have again won the Cisco Data Centre and Virtualisation Partner of the Year award. Our partnership with Cisco remains central to our growth and success, and we’re pleased to have received this recognition for our commitment to Cisco as our strategic data centre partner. Many thanks are in order to everyone who contributed to this win, and a huge thank you to Cisco for the continued support of ANS.”
