ANS wins FlexPod Partner of the Year third year running


For the third year in a row ANS has scooped up the NetApp FlexPod Partner of the Year award at the NetApp UK&I Partner Awards. The annual award dinner recognises partners who have contributed most productively to the growth of NetApp business and who have demonstrated a strong commitment to delivering high-quality, innovative IT solutions with NetApp products.

NetApp storage is a key component of ANS’ managed infrastructure services, forming the foundation for the business’s infrastructure, workspace and protection services.

The FlexPod Partner award is given to the partner that has shown the strongest competence in architecting, building and delivering FlexPod solutions and who can demonstrate successful resolution of customer challenges using the resilient infrastructure platform. ANS’ recent work with international legal firm Addleshaw Goddard in addition to numerous other deployments across the public and private sectors highlighted the business’s unmatched experience and success.

Sales and revenue were also taken into account, along with partner and community involvement, FlexPod marketing activity and customer endorsements. Paul Sweeney, Managing Director of ANS, said: “Each year the competition gets harder, so it’s really rewarding to receive this award for the third year running. It demonstrates our commitment to continually innovating and to successfully integrating FlexPod and NetApp into our long term business strategy. An award like this also enhances our reputation to a wider audience and ensures that we can continue to attract new customers and work with NetApp to develop new opportunities.”
