Cisco_logo-1000pxcStor announced today that it has achieved the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization from Cisco. This specialization recognizes cStor as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, design and deploy comprehensive Cisco(r) Data Center solutions.

The specialization provides role-based training in three essential areas: Unified Fabric for optimizing data and storage needs; Unified Computing for streamlining data center resources and uniting network, computational, storage and virtualization platforms; and Unified Network Services for advancing the way application delivery and security services are provided in the data center network or computing environment.

“We are incredibly proud that our team has achieved this prestigious specialization. The DCA Specialization means Cisco has certified that we have all the skills and experience necessary to help clients build their private cloud environments. In today’s business, clients need and want their partners like cStor, to be able to not just architect and sell products but to help design, deploy and integrate private, hybrid and public cloud solutions. We look forward to continuing to do so for our clients.” said Larry Gentry, President and COO of cStor.
