Press Release | 24 Mar 2014
The company was recognized as Extreme Top Platinum Revenue Partner for 2013 Zensar Technologies, a leading software services and infrastructure management services provider, today announced that it has been elevated to a Diamond Level partner by Extreme Networks, Inc. Zensar earned this prestigious and highest level of partnership status after receiving Extreme Network’s Top Platinum Revenue Partner Award for 2013 in recognition of significant contributions to Extreme’s revenue and strategic products growth. This is the third year that Zensar has been recognized as an Extreme Top Channel Partner in North America. As a Diamond Level partner, Zensar has proven capabilities in delivering a multitude of aspects of Extreme Networks’ related services including assessments and design, implementation and migration, as well as the management of Extreme Networks’ high-performance solutions with Extreme Certified and highly experienced engineers. Zensar’s Diamond Level partnership showcases a strong commitment to the full lifecycle of Extreme Networks’ solutions, including achievement of training and certification requirements. Zensar was recognized at Extreme Network’s 2013 global partner conference with the Top Platinum Revenue Award for North America. The award recognized Zensar for achieving the highest revenue growth at 177% during Extreme’s Fiscal Year 2013. “We are very pleased to be honored once again by Extreme Networks with a Top Partner award and an elevated partner status,” said Ankit Ghosh, Senior Vice President and Head of Global IM Practices at Zensar. “This recognition highlights the expertise of our team in delivering the highest level of services to our customers. Our partnership with Extreme Networks allows Zensar the ability to deliver an enhanced portfolio of network solutions that address our customers’ mission-critical data center and network infrastructure needs.” “We have a long-standing relationship with Zensar and can consistently rely on their expertise and breadth of technologies to support our high-performance solutions,” said Theresa Caragol, Global Vice President of Channels and Partners at Extreme Networks. “We are happy to once again recognize Zensar as a top partner and value their continued commitment to driving the benefits of network connectivity solutions with their clients.” Zensar’s strong revenue growth with Extreme Networks was a result of proven and successful implementations at leading enterprise organizations:
- A national research university with nearly 17,000 students worked with Zensar to implement Extreme Networks’ switching products to deliver network access throughout their three campuses encompassing 3 million square feet and 125 acres. The university was challenged with an aging network that needed to be replaced due to end of life hardware, and they were seeking a hardware platform that did not need constant upgrades on a regular basis to support new releases and new features. Extreme’s high-end Black Diamond Layer 3 switches interconnect the three campus cores over 10GB and 40GB fiber links, and Summit series switches are utilized for end-user access. The Extreme solution provides the university with a value-add benefit as it uses a single operating system (XOS) for ease of administration and trouble shooting of the 300-switch network.
- A global cloud based application provider with business dependent on 100 percent network uptime turned to Zensar and Extreme Networks when they needed to reinforce their network and replace outdated equipment to promote reliability for its mission critical business offering. The client started by upgrading one data center with Extreme Summit series switches that enable improved uptime, manageability and operational efficiency. The client needed to be able to move to a 100% uptime data center model and leveraged Extreme’s Multi-Switch Link Aggregation (M-LAG) capabilities. In addition to the critical need for full availability, the client realized flexibility to implement non-blocking networks; no wasted bandwidth as both links are active; and high levels of resilience and reliability with redundant paths available at all times.
Zensar partners with clients to holistically align IT programs and goals with enterprise strategy to deliver flexible solutions that drive business processes as well as improve the availability, reliability and performance of Data Center, Security and Compliance, and End User Computing infrastructure. Utilizing its multi-shore methodology, Zensar delivers best-in-class IT services through its global delivery centers including Westborough, MA; Slough, UK; Veenendaal, The Netherlands; Shanghai, China; Pune, India and Hyderabad, India.
