Xalient named Aruba EMEA Silver Peak Partner of the Year 2021

Global network services provider Xalient, today announced that it has been awarded the Aruba Silver Peak EMEA Partner of the Year FY21 award, presented at the FY21 Aruba EMEA Channel Partner Awards Ceremony 

The Awards, hosted virtually by  Silver Peak (acquired by Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, in 2020), recognise partners for excellence in sales and delivery of the Aruba EdgeConnect Platform across 2021. 

Xalient has been part of the Silver Peak Partner Program since 2011 and, in that time, has heavily invested in Silver Peak sales and technical certifications. In March 2020, Xalient was awarded Certified Deployment Partner Accreditation – one of just nine organisations worldwide to have successfully obtained the certification– which recognises partners who have been chosen and trained to perform all facets of SD-WAN installation and deployment of Silver Peak products. Xalient is also recognised as a Silver Peak Platinum partner as a result of the significant Silver Peak technical certifications and sales it has achieved.

What is the G-Cloud 11 Framework?

G-Cloud is the UK government’s initiative to help public sector organisations easily adopt cloud-based and digital services. A new version of the framework is usually released every six to nine months with G-Cloud 11 being the latest iteration.

The framework is underpinned by the government’s ‘Cloud First’ policy and approach to IT, encouraging the public sector to make the most of cloud solutions rather than onsite alternatives. Organisations are able to search and choose from various suppliers offering cloud-based and digital technology services in the UK via the Digital Marketplace website with the peace of mind they are purchasing from an approved G-Cloud supplier.

The Digital Marketplace

The Digital Marketplace makes G-Cloud suppliers more easily accessible through a single website.

Services within the G-Cloud 11 framework are split into three categories:  Cloud Software, Cloud Hosting and Cloud Support. The Digital Marketplace website streamlines the process of selling and purchasing cloud services, with each solution listing available with a complete specification breakdown.

In order to be listed, suppliers must undergo a rigorous application process to ensure they meet G-Cloud 11’s focus and requirements on cybersecurity, data security and security accreditations, along with meeting the necessary UK business legislation.
