Building a future-ready data foundation with VMware

For many IT professionals, the choice of platform vendor is relatively straight forward. There are differences between all the major players but one vendor in particular offers the gold-standard when it comes to delivering a future ready data foundation - VMware.

Equally, choosing VMware to be your platform vendor for a Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC) is an easy decision to make. With VMware’s maturity in the SDDC space you can rest easy, knowing that you’re taking advantage of the experience of the many blue-chip organisations that have gone before you.

Perhaps more importantly how do you choose an Integration Partner when it comes to project specification and delivery? You might ask around and look at accreditations and case studies. You might also invite a handful of the best partners to tender.

But what if you wanted an Integration Partner that sits on your side of the table when planning and negotiating? A partner that can innovate beyond the technology. A partner that can think both strategically and tactically. This is where your choices narrow, and one Partner will stand out among the crowd.

At award winning Manchester based LIMA Networks we were one of the first Partners in the UK to hold all eight key competencies for VMware SDDC. We have implemented multiple cloud foundation solutions across all the major sectors, including the first to be deployed nationally throughout the NHS.

At LIMA, we make the Integration Partner decision just as easy as the choice of vendor. We have worked at the forefront of VMware’s SDDC program in the UK since inception, and today we’re delivering more data foundation projects than ever. As a fully accredited VMware Enterprise Solutions Provider with competencies across Cloud, Virtualisation, Security, Networking and Data Centre, LIMA already tick all the right boxes.

Additionally, LIMA has multi cloud capability allowing us to stretch SDDC private cloud solutions into public cloud environments, including those based on Azure and AWS.

More importantly, we actively invest the time and energy needed to truly understand your business roadmap. By consulting with you from the beginning of the project, we work as a part of your team to get more from your vendor relationships. LIMA sit on your side of the table, scoping and specifying the minutiae so that your SDDC environment can scale to meet business demands – ensuring that IT never becomes a block to innovation.

By aligning your business roadmap, goals and data insights with VMware’s SDDC solutions, the LIMA team can help IT rise beyond the challenges of historical infrastructure and software to become the vehicle for business success.

Taking responsibility

Beyond planning, we at LIMA take responsibility for design and delivery of the SDDC features that your business needs. The LIMA team provide all of the specialist skills from engineering to training that will set your business on a path to IT success.

We work extremely hard early on in each customer engagement to map out the objectives of the organisation, the current challenges and technical solutions before considering which technology solutions will underpin each customers strategy to meet the desired outcomes.

After delivery, we include an ongoing program of Proactive Support for your SDDC solution, removing the internal pressure and day-to-day operational issues of running complex solutions. Our expert support team maintains complete visibility of your supported systems and seamlessly carries out all the necessary maintenance, updates and support tasks required to maximise your system’s availability and performance.

Every touchpoint is measured through a series of service delivery, incident management and performance monitoring solutions that feed back into an evolving knowledge base.

Performance is maintained by our team, constantly monitoring and optimising your VMware SDDC solution in line with your strategic aims.
