FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Quest Achieves Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization from Cisco in the USA.

Sacramento, CA: September 25, 2012 � Quest announced today that it has achieved the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization from Cisco. This specialization recognizes Quest as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, design and deploy comprehensive Cisco® Data Center solutions.

The specialization provides role-based training in three essential areas: Unified Fabric for optimizing data and storage needs; Unified Computing for streamlining data center resources and uniting network, computational, storage and virtualization platforms; and Unified Network Services for advancing the way application delivery and security services are provided in the data center network or computing environment.

Quest President and CEO Tim Burke stated "Data is a company’s lifeblood so Quest offers customized solutions to store and protect information in data centers either at the customer’s site or one of our global Service Delivery Centers. And we help by providing virtualization options to maximize efficiency which reduces a company’s capital expense."

"As a Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialized Partner, Quest has made a significant investment in the training required to help customers accelerate their business growth, reduce the total cost of ownership, and extend the life of its current infrastructure by making its data center more efficient, agile and resilient," said Ralph Nimergood, vice president of data center architecture for the worldwide partner department at Cisco.

The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, design and technical talent and then validates their skills through a third-party audit.
