HPE has announced its 2021 Partner Awards with Sydney-based Australian Centre for Advanced Computing (AC3) taking home Asia Pacific Service Provider of the Year.
The awards recognise HPE partners for customer success, performance and growth and are based on financial performance, innovative solutions, and ability to drive business outcomes for shared customers.

“We have a very strong partnership with HPE, focused on delivering the best outcomes for our joint customers. When you build a partnership based on customer success, it creates the right environment to do great work together. We look forward to continuing to work closely with HPE in the future.”
in a blog post announcing the awards, HPE worldwide partner sales head George Hope said, “In the last year, I’ve seen HPE partners go above and beyond the call of duty. I’m incredibly proud to honour them with these accolades.
