The company has been certified as a Cisco Master Managed Services Channel Partner (MSCP) and also received the official designation of a Cisco Cloud Provider to offer Cisco Powered IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) Cloud.
Cisco now recognizes SunGard, a software and technology services company, as a provider that can deliver exceptional cloud services in a multitenant environment to end customers.

“SunGard’s investment in Cisco Certification ranks it among an elite group of channel partners with the resources to deploy, manage and support services for multiple technologies,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president of worldwide channels at Cisco.
“Being part of the global Cisco MSCP and the Cloud Partner program is a great achievement for SunGard and an additional validation of our managed services and cloud offerings,” said Rob Walters, vice president, managed services at SunGard Availability Services. “This official designation will only help to accelerate our already close partnership with Cisco.”

These services effectively provide fully managed, end-to-end infrastructure solutions that help customers run their IT operations run in a smooth manner.
