Nassau, Bahamas (PRWEB) April 26, 2012 – Following a period that has seen the company go from strength to strength in the Cloud Computing Sector in The Bahamas, Cloud Carib announced today that it has completed all requirements for the upgrade to Enterprise partner status, a highly respected designation of the VMware (NYSE:VMW) partner community.

“We congratulate Cloud Carib for achieving Enterprise status partner level with VMware”, said “Hector Luciano, Sales Director for VMware in Latin America and the Caribbean. “Thanks to partners like Cloud Carib’s support and commitment in the region, VMware continues to expand in the Caribbean offering premiere cloud computing and virtualization solutions for SMBs and enterprises”

Enterprise partner level – Why it matters.
Enterprise partners have a higher level of VMware expertise, which allows Cloud Carib to take advantage of VMware’s solutions more effectively to develop and deliver enterprise-ready cloud services to market. As an Enterprise Solution Provider Partner, Cloud Carib also has access to several of VMware’s products, licenses and support services — all of which will help us to improve the company’s results in the Bahamian market, which in turn will enable its clients to improve their business.

“Enterprise level partners demonstrate an extensive expertise in working with VMware technologies, along with a deep understanding of the key technologies in the VMware enterprise-class cloud stack”, Damir Lukic, Global Sales Manager of Cloud Carib stated. “We are grateful for the support we have received directly from VMware in the past months since Cloud Carib was established. To-date, we have invested in the formation of the business and forming alliances with leading technology companies, to bring only the best solutions to Bahamian and Caribbean businesses”
