Basefarm awarded ‘Service Provider of the Year’ by VMware

VMware has selected Basefarm as the Service Provider of 2014 in Norway.  WMvare recognize Basefarm’s technology expertise, strong implementation of cloud solutions and focus on innovation as the main reasons for the award.

“Our goal is to create value and business success for our customers. In order to do so we are dependent on having skilled and dedicated employees with great technology and business understanding. This award is therefore a great recognition of the work we do in our VMware team”, says Gunnar Grønås in Basefarm.

The company was an early adopter of cloud services based on technology from VMware and is today among the leaders in this field in Norway.

“Basefarm was among the first 50 companies in the world that adopted our solution vCloud Air. Since then, the company has emerged as an innovative and highly competent partner. There is therefore no doubt that Basefarm is a worthy winner of the Service Provider of the Year”, says Kristine Dahl Steidel, Country Manager, VMware Norway.

Many of Basefarm’s customers use VMware technology and the company is therefore investing significant resources to ensure that they have market-leading expertise on these solutions.

“As a service provider for business critical IT-solutions, our customers expect that we have in depth knowledge about technology in general and their own solutions in particular. We prove this to our customers every single day, but it is obviously gratifying to receive this tangible proof of our expertise from one of our most important technology partners”, says Gunnar Grønås Basefarm.
