BY Phil Mclean, HPE VMware Alliance Manager , EMEA 


VMware4.jpgHPE has been named VMware Strategic Alliance Partner of the Year 2017 for both Worldwide and the EMEA region. While all VMware Partner of the Year awards are desirable and recognize outstanding achievement, many are for specific areas or technologies, such as Digital Workspace, Marketing, Data Center Modernization, SDDC, etc. HPE is especially pleased to have won its awards in one of the more global categories – Strategic Alliance Partner. The awards were presented at VMware’s Partner Leadership Summit recently held in California.


HPE has been a strategic partner with VMware for well over a decade. Together, we have revolutionized the datacenter with server virtualization. Today, HPE continues to be the leader in the servers virtualized on VMware with over 37% market share worldwide.
