Award for creative use of NetApp technologies and multi-vendor course offering

Fast Lane receives NetApp Partner Award at NetApp Innovation 2011

Fast Lane has received the NetApp Partner Award at the NetApp Innovation conference on 22nd February 2011 in Berlin. The company received the award for its creative use of NetApp technology especially FlexPod in its remote lab infrastructure and delivery of multi-vendor courses. Fast Lane has the world’s largest remote lab that supports NetApp, Cisco, and VMware for multi-vendor hands-on training.

Fast Lane received the award partly for having set up pioneering remote labs over the last three years. These multi-vendor environments enable training participants to access specific courses that prepare them for using NetApp, Cisco and VMware technologies in the workplace. The core of the lab infrastructure of the Fast Lane training centers in Berlin, Frankfurt and Hamburg is comprised of redundantly-configured NetApp 3140/3210 clusters running in a unified fabric with Cisco Nexus switches, UCS blade servers and VMware vSphere. These labs are used for official secure multi-tenancy courses as well as IVA-demo labs (Imagine Virtually Anything) during channel and customer events held by the three vendors and their partners.

“The award from NetApp confirms the success of our strategy, which is focused on continually expanding our worldwide lab infrastructure – and especially recognizes our investments in this unique multi-vendor lab environment”, says Kees Boot, Line of Business Manager NetApp for Fast Lane. “We are very appreciative of this award from NetApp and will continue to expand our existing labs in Berlin, Hamburg, and Frankfurt and add new labs in Duesseldorf and Stuttgart. We believe we have a successful strategy that helps our customers with their growing skills gap in multi-vendor data center implementations.”
