In the early days of virtualization Long View identified virtualization as an important industry direction that had the potential of being the next big technology. Long View started a relationship with VMware in 2002, even before there was a VMware partner program. Our investment paid off and Long View held the largest VMware partner certified team in North America, virtualized the most servers anywhere for clients, and won the VMware Partner of the Year, Technical Delivery award in 2006 for the Americas.
Long View has invested extensively over the last few years adding advanced delivery capabilities in new VMware solutions and certifications including End User Computing, Software Defined Data Center, and Cloud. This has enabled us to achieve many firsts:
- Long View was executively named to the first VMware Partner Advisory Council back in 2005 and Long View has had senior technical leaders on the VMware Technical Advisory Board since 2006.
- Long View was the first Canadian partner to have VMware Certified Design Experts (VCDX) on staff – VCDX is the VMware architecture certification held by slightly more than 200 professionals worldwide, and demonstrates the capability to deliver VMware solutions to the highest standard.
- Long View was also the first North America VMware solution provider partner to have both Data Center and Cloud VMware Certified Design Experts on staff.
