Capita subsidiary Trustmarque is the first Dell partner in the UK & Ireland to be certified to install the vendor's Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) for customers.
Up until now, only Dell engineers have been allowed to deploy it.
Dell EMC ECS is an enterprise-grade object storage platform that allows organisations to capture, store, protect and manage unstructured data at scale.
ECS can be used on its own or it can be matched with Dell EMC Isilon, a scale-out network attached storage platform.
Two of Trustmarque’s technical service architects completed bespoke ECS implementation training in August, making them the first accredited implementation engineers in the UK outside of Dell Technologies.
Charles Wilce, EMEA senior sales director for unstructured data solutions at Dell Technologies, said: “This significant investment clearly demonstrates a long-term commitment to a great partnership with Dell for unstructured data solutions.
“Alliances with consultative led organisations such as Trustmarque are essential for the Dell EMC unstructured data solutions business. Together, we are now poised to jointly capitalise on a whole range of new emerging workloads.”
Mark Garrity, managing director at Trustmarque, said: “We know that unstructured data poses a big challenge to many organisations, yet no one outside of Dell Technologies could deploy ECS in the UK.
"We’re proud to be named a partner of choice and are excited to be able to make these great technologies available to more organisations.
“Our aim is to be the leading IT partner in the UK for object and cloud storage so we can enable organisations to streamline their data centre infrastructure and reap the benefits of digital transformation.”
