Partners Awarded for Extraordinary Performance and Notable Achievements

Wijk aan Zee, April 4, 2019. ITQ today announced that it has received the Global 2018 VMware Partner Innovation Services Award for Network Virtualization. ITQ was recognized at the VMware Partner Leadership Summit 2019, held in Carlsbad, CA.

“We congratulate ITQ on winning the Partner Innovation Award for Global Services Partner Network Virtualization, and look forward to our continued collaboration and innovation,” said Kenneth del Rio van Heese, Senior Manager Business Partners & Alliances Benelux at VMware. “VMware and our partners will continue to empower organizations of all sizes with technologies that enable digital transformation.”

The VMware Partner Global Innovation Award for Network Virtualization demonstrates the effort a partner has put in developing a Software-Defined Networking proposition, next to also demonstrating their knowledge and skill set when designing and implementing those technologies. ITQ has been one of the first partners globally to have designed and deployed VMware’s Software-Defined Networking solution NSX-T and has been doing this on a European scale for the past 12 months.

“We’re extremely proud to win a VMware Global Partner Innovation Award,” said Francisco Perez van der Oord, Chief Customer Success Officer and one of the founders of ITQ Consultancy. “This is truly a team effort: it shows our passion for technology and our belief in the strategy of VMware. It also shows the commitment of the entire VMware team and their belief and acknowledgment in us as an independent Service-only-Partner.”

Since 1999 I am part of the IT world. The first few years as a field engineer working with SBC products like WinFrame and MetaFrame and later with TS/RDS based solutions. In 2005 I had my first experience with VMware products and since then I got hooked. Especially when I saw my first vMotion :) Late 2013, it was time to make a career change. But what? Actually, it was kind-of easy. Mix Server Virtualization with SBC and Application Virtualization and what do you get? The answer is simple, End-User Computing. I applied for a job at ITQ as a Virtualization Consultant, got hired and took my career to a next level. The 3 year after that were a rollercoaster. vExpert since 2015, VCIX/VCAP's (5/6) on Data Center and Desktop & Mobility, VMware EUC Champion awards and I achieved my ultimate goal: VCDX-DTM. As EUC is going through a revolution with a lot of new tech that makes it more agile, robust, scalable, secure, manageable and pretty awesome, my main focus is on EUC. But with a passion for technology, I won't hesitate if any other cool project comes by. If you like to read more about me, you can do so on my personal blog
