Our Role Amidst Industry Changes

Our selection as Pinnacle Partner comes at a crucial time. Many in the VMware community are currently evaluating the implications of Broadcom’s acquisition on their operations and technology strategies. With clients like Bpay Group (part of Australian Payments Plus), Collaboro, and Virtual IT Group (VITG) under our belt, we’ve demonstrated a strong capability in leveraging VMware technology to deliver value, modernised and infrastructure and security.   

Commitment to Our Customers  

As a Pinnacle Partner, we have access to the top tier of discounts on VMware Cloud Foundation solutions, which we can pass directly through to our customers.  

Our purpose has always been about providing our customers with choice and unparalleled service, helping businesses traditionally overcharged and underserviced.

It’s Always Good to Have Options

Many in the VMWare community are exploring what the Broadcom acquisition means for their business and perhaps their end users.  

We know Broadcom is deeply committed to their flagship cloud product, VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF). VCF integrates vSphere, vSAN, HCX, NSX, Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and the Aria Suite. This combination provides stability, scalability, and consistency in the cloud. Additionally, customers get unified VM and container management, cloud-scale networking, automated provisioning, and robust platform-based security.   
Many will still choose to leverage VMware by Broadcom technology and need new avenues to do that. 
We have a proven track record of delivering the best value, experience, and security for VMware workloads. We are completely equipped and ready to deliver platforms and services with VCF.

For MSPs impacted by Broadcom changes, we offer secure, compliant white label and licensing options to minimise disruption and protect end user experience.
