SCC has been awarded Cloud Reseller of the Year by HP at their annual conference. Andy Isherwood, HP’s UK Managing Director, presented the award to SCC UK Commercial Director Andy Wright.
Following on from winning HP’s PartnerOne Worldwide New Style of IT Partner Of The Year Award earlier in 2014, this recognition further cements the strength of SCC’s relationship with HP and the level of commitment around Cloud offerings on both sides.
SCC has achieved excellence in all aspects of Cloud; from delivering private cloud at a customer site, to hosting customer Cloud in our own secure Data Centre, delivering a Cloud+ environment or a Hybrid version to meet an organisation’s individual needs.
SCC is the only UK organisation to hold awards both within the UK and globally around Cloud; reflecting our wide portfolio of services tailored to customer needs.
Andy Wright said: “It is fantastic to be recognised by HP in the UK for all of SCC’s efforts, and follows closely on the heels of SCC being recognised by HP at a global level.
“We are especially pleased that SCC are being recognised for the value that we bring to all aspects of cloud computing, which draws together many of the product offerings from HP, for example storage, servers and networking to deliver new solutions in association with SCC’s complete service wrap.
“This has included delivering and managing on-premises Cloud transformation projects to full outsources where SCC’s Cloud+ platform, built on HP technology, has become an underpinning component of a customer’s outsource to an SCC managed service.
“SCC is highly skilled in delivering flexible solutions to meet customer’s requirements, and is driving new consumption and finance models to support the shift to a more data and user centric world.”
Senior Partner Manager Tonya Toon added: “We are so pleased to have won the Cloud Reseller of the Year Award, emphasising the fantastic work the team have done.
“This year has been a whirlwind of achievements, having celebrated our success earlier this year winning the HP PartnerOne Worldwide 2014 New Style of IT Partner of the Year, the award was to honour SCC for its sustained innovation in cloud, mobility, big data and security areas of IT.”
Following the event, Andy Isherwood commented:
“The award for HP UK&I Cloud Partner of the year is great recognition of SCC’s investment in the HP Helion Cloud portfolio, by developing a range of hybrid cloud services from private on premise, through to shared hosted services from SCC’s own data centers. This demonstrates SCC’s commitment to HP’s cloud vision and strategy.
“The recognition also builds on the worldwide award recently presented at HP’s Global Partner Conference in Las Vegas as HP ‘New Style of IT’ Partner of the Year 2014. A fantastic and unique accomplishment for any partner to hold the top two awards that cover HP Cloud technologies and deliver the New Style of IT.”
