KISTA, Sweden – June 23, 2016 — / —  The technological vision of NetApp on the hybrid cloud Proact has received two new significant industry awards. For its success in hybrid cloud implementation, NetApp has named Proact Data Fabric Partner of the Year. In addition, Proact has been named Partner of the Year for the Netherlands, by NetApp.

Proact, the leading data centre integrator and private cloud services provider, has once again been recognised for its excellence in building hybrid clouds for its customers across Europe. At the NetApp EMEA Partners Awards 2016, Proact was named the winner in the Data Fabric category. Proact CEO Jason Clark accepted the award at the NetApp EMEA Partner Executive Forum in Lisbon.

Proact was mentioned for proactively promoting the Data Fabric vision and for its business success with NetApp in several countries. In every part of the fabric, Proact offers services and solutions, and continues to build, based on NetApp technology, to fully realize the potential of hybrid clouds.

“The awareness that the Proact Hybrid Cloud and NetApp Data Fabric are a perfect match has in many ways defined our work and offering, and we are proud to be recognised by NetApp for our commitment to delivering on our common vision for hybrid cloud environments,” says Jason Clark, CEO, Proact IT Group AB. “Looking forward, we are confident that Data Fabric will continue to evolve to meet future challenges and, just as Proact is certainly very well prepared to serve any upcoming customer needs.”

“The Data Fabric is at the heart of our corporate strategy. It is the proverbial fabric stretching across and connecting private, service provider, and hyperscale clouds,” says Alfred Manhart, Senior Director Channel & System Integrators EMEA. “To move from strategy to tangible results however requires more. We need trusted partners like Proact to promote the Data Fabric and its full solution portfolio, including technologies like FlexPod and NetApp Private Storage. In several countries across Europe, we rely on Proact to offer services and solutions for the hybrid cloud built on NetApp. They have done a fantastic job in FY16 and have rightfully won our EMEA Partner Award in the ‘Data Fabric’ category.”

NetApp’s Partner Excellence awards program recognises those partners who go beyond the call of duty for their customers and demonstrate success at the highest level. For the awards, partners are evaluated on revenue attainment, growth and investment in NetApp training.
