NetApp, the data authority for hybrid cloud world, has concluded its 13th EMEA Partner Executive Forum (PEF) in Madrid, Spain. During the two-day event the company’s annual EMEA Partner Excellence Award for Flash Partner of the Year was proudly presented to Logicalis in recognition of exceptional performance, desire to innovate and outstanding service quality. 

“The world of data is being propelled into the future with technologies such as 5G networks, AI heuristics, and billions of connected devices that form the Internet of Things. The next big differentiator will be for companies to maximize the value of their data as they navigate this digital transformation,” says Kristian Kerr, Vice President Partners & Pathways EMEA at NetApp. “Our Data Fabric strategy and our solutions for cloud-connected flash and hybrid-cloud infrastructures are key differentiators here. But without a doubt the partners turn technology into innovation, supporting our joint customers as they develop and launch new cloud-enabled business models. Tonight’s awards are all about celebrating this. Congratulations to Logicalis.” 

Logicalis received the award for Flash Partner of the Year EMEA for demonstrating all through NetApp’s fiscal year that they have achieved an outstanding performance and triple-digit growth with NetApp flash in Germany. Their innovative go-to-market approach and strong partnership is leading to continuous success.
