VMware revealed its top performing partners during its Annual Partner Leadership Summit with Australia's Insight and Data#3 taking home both regional and global awards.
Insight Enterprises won both the global and regional winner in the Renewals category. Data#3 was the regional winner for Asia-Pacific and Japan in the VMware NSX category.
Data#3 national practice manager for security Richard Dornhart said: "The team is delighted to win this award, which reflects Data#3’s investment in VMware’s network virtualisation technology, NSX."
"NSX helps our customers to be agile and gain efficiencies within their software defined data centres. It decouples security from the physical hardware, allowing the development of granular security policies for individual workloads."
Ross Brown, VMware's senior vice president, worldwide partners and alliances, said: "We are pleased to present the VMware Global Partner Innovation Awards to a broad range of winners this year.
"The VMware Partner Network consistently delivers value and performance to a dynamic set of businesses globally, and together, we enable organisations to harness the power of their digital transformation, and help them thrive in today’s competitive business environment."
The awards were announced on 25 May during the VMware Summit, which was held in Ranchos Palos Verdes, California.
VMware recognises partners annually for outstanding achievements accomplished during the previous year.
