ANS secure another Cisco Master Cloud Builder accreditation


ANS have passed stringent requirements to retain our Cisco Master Cloud Builder accreditation. ANS are one of only four partners in the UK to achieve the Cisco Master Cloud Builder, which recognises exceptional capability in building, deploying and managing cloud-ready, integrated infrastructures. This news comes as the second Cisco success within as many days, as ANS were also congratulated for achieving Cisco Channel Customer Satisfaction Excellence this week.

Cisco Master Cloud Builder partners must adhere to exacting criteria in order to achieve or retain the accreditation. Along with architectural and services criteria, partners must have at least one CCIE on board and multiple customer references. The accreditation, held by just a handful of UK partners, goes hand in hand with the Master Cloud Builder to allow ANS to offer customers the highest levels of competency and capability in the industry.

Paul Shannon, COO, ANS said: “Three years ago, ANS set out to build the best and most customer focussed Managed Services practice in the industry. To achieve this, we invested a significant amount of time, money and, most importantly, people into the Managed Services and Cloud functions. The certifications we have amassed, including the reaccreditation of Master Cloud Builder, validate our hard work and commitment and highlight the amazing progress we’ve made towards our goals.

Each and every one of the processes that make up a robust Managed Services organisation was reviewed, tested and evidenced across the Master certifications and ANS passed all areas with high scores. These certifications show our customers and potential customers alike, that ANS can be trusted to build and manage their Private, Hybrid and Public Clouds to the highest level.

Our goal is always to focus on the most important area any genuine Managed Services business can, which is Continuous Service Improvement, and pass these improvements on to our customers. ANS is extremely proud to have our services validated by Cisco, the number one global Cloud Infrastructure Vendor.”

As a Cisco Master Cloud Builder specialised partner ANS can deliver a new generation of IT and cloud services without compromising security or functionality and are committed to creating solutions for our customers’ most complex business needs.
