Auldhouse nets Firefly datacentre training deal

Auldhouse has partnered with Cisco worldwide datacentre education partner Firefly, to offer the vendor’s datacentre infrastructure, unified computing and Cisco Nexus switching platform training locally.

General manager Melanie Hobcraft says her company was recommended to Firefly by Dimension Data Learning Solutions in Australia, which is Firefly's Australian training partner, and with which Auldhouse partners to offer Cisco courseware and labs.

Under the exclusive agreement, Auldhouse will offer Cisco’s datacentre networking infrastructure v2.0 and v3.0 boot camps, which run for three and five days respectively, datacentre unified computing and implementation programmes, along with Nexus implementation and configuration courses.

Hobcraft says there has been little training of this type offered here.

“This is an excellent opportunity to offer a wide range of Cisco’s datacentre training portfolio locally, reducing the cost of travelling offshore to attend this training.”

She says there is growing demand here among partners and end users for this training.

Firefly is headquartered in the US and established its regional headquarters in Singapore in 2008. It offers classroom instruction, remote labs, professional services and strategic technology consulting.

Asia Pacific director James Furneaux says it is seeking education partners in other countries, because it has a partnership model for end user training.

He says Auldhouse will be its only New Zealand partner, and was selected because of its strong links to the partner community, as well as its relationships with many of New Zealand’s major companies and government departments.

Auldhouse's Firefly datacentre courses began this month in Auckland and Wellington.
