"The collaboration between VMware and Savvis plays a fundamental role in providing businesses with robust cloud solutions that address their complex needs for scalable, agile infrastructure," said Andrew Higginbotham, chief technology officer, Savvis. "These businesses are the real winners of our collaboration, and we look forward to continued work with VMware and others as we deliver on our commitment to quality infrastructure solutions."

The award was presented at VMware Partner Exchange 2013, Mare's annual partner event, on Feb. 26 in Las Vegas. The awards acknowledge partners across 17 categories for their excellence in performance and distinctive achievements during 2012.

"We are pleased to recognize the achievements made in 2012 by members of the VMware partner ecosystem," said Dan Smoot, senior vice president, customer operations, VMware. "VMware Partner Exchange is dedicated to educating and equipping our partner ecosystem with the resources and insights they need to help deliver first class solutions for the software-defined datacenter in the coming year. We congratulate Savvis on winning a VMware Partner Network Award and we look forward to our mutual success in 2013."

From shared, dedicated and hybrid cloud solutions to fully virtualized data centers, Savvis Symphony cloud services are part of a complete portfolio of IT solutions including managed services, collocation, consulting services and network services.

Savvis' collaboration with VMware has brought significant value to the enterprise landscape, most recently through its selection of VMware fabric™ Application Director™ as the application-modeling component for its next generation of Savvis Symphony enterprise cloud solutions.

VMware fabric Application Director is a cloud-enabled application-provisioning solution with a self-service modeling and deployment interface that reduces deployment effort and ongoing application management for enterprises looking to increase business agility and maintain IT control through Savvis Symphony Cloud.

The relationship with VMware has also enhanced and expanded the Savvis Cloud Ecosystem Program to include cloud API-compatible partners and cloud-ready applications from the VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace™. Launched in August 2012 at Mold San Francisco, the program offers partner-based cloud-governance and lifecycle-management solutions, including the ability to manage both on- and off-premise workloads. Through the ecosystem, Savvis' cloud clients gain access to leading orchestration, brokerage, management and governance solutions that complement their private, hybrid and public cloud environments.
