Auldhouse takes on virtualisation training for VMware

Auldhouse has been appointed as the first, locally-based certification training partner for virtualisation software vendor VMware, hot on the heels of its foray into the Australian market.

To date VMware training has been offered in New Zealand by the vendor directly, while HP has also provided some training as it is a global VMware training partner.

Auldhouse will offer nationwide VMware certified professional training for channel partners and end-users from March 1, says general manager Melanie Hobcraft.

“We are investing in our own people for them to become VMware certified instructors. Being able to deliver VMware certification training is another value-add we can provide.”

According to Hobcraft taking on VMware training gives the company an opportunity to drive local skills around a growing technology, such as virtualisation.

“It fits really well with our strategy to work with partners to help them grow.”

With offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, Auldhouse can provide VMware across the country, says Hobcraft.

“We also offer onsite training in regional areas.”

Auldhouse has meanwhile recently entered the Australian market, where it has been appointed as the exclusive agent for Canadian-based global IT service management education and consulting provider Pink Elephant, from last December.

Pink Elephant previously operated its own operation in Australia, which will now be run by Auldhouse through parent company Gen-i’s Australian operation.

“Pink Elephant has consolidated its Australian business with Auldhouse,” says Hobcraft. “This is very exciting – Pink Elephant is a global and well recognised brand that will be very good for our business moving forward.”

Auldhouse has offered Pink Elephant’s Information Technology Infrastructure Library courses locally for the past two years and its success with these would have helped it win the Australian agency, says Hobcraft.

“They could have approached any large organisation in Australia, but decided to appoint a New Zealand organisation.”
