Datalink (Nasdaq: DTLK), a leading provider of data center infrastructure and services, announced that it is the first partner to achieve the Data Center – FlexPod™ Specialization from NetApp. The new specialization recognizes Datalink as having fulfilled one of the most rigorous levels of company competency recognized by NetApp for its partners.

In achieving the Data Center - FlexPod Specialization, Datalink is acknowledged as having fulfilled stringent NetApp and Cisco competency requirements that include key prerequisites and specializations in areas such as Cisco Unified Computing Technology, Cisco Data Center Architecture and NetApp Professional Services Certifications in Storage Infrastructure, Server Virtualization (VMware) and Backup and Recovery. Datalink is also recognized for having developed demo facilities, completing hands-on demos, and passing key best practices training associated with the architecture, design and implementation of FlexPod environments.

The Data Center – FlexPod Specialization qualifies Datalink as an expert resource to assist customers in the analysis, design, implementation and support of next-generation data centers and virtual hosted desktops built on the Cisco and NetApp FlexPod design architecture.

“Unified architectures like FlexPod are playing a key role in delivering next-generation data centers and private cloud environments.

“We are pleased to recognize Datalink as the first NetApp channel partner to complete our specialization in Data Center – FlexPod environments,” commented Todd Palmer, vice president, Americas Channel Sales, NetApp. “Designed for our top partners, this designation will continue to reinforce Datalink’s track record as a holistic advisor to organizations wanting to obtain fast ROI and success when deploying unified server, storage, and networking architectures.”
