Encore Achieves Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization

EASLEY, SC--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2013) - Encore Technology Group, one of the Southeast's largest independent technology solution providers, today announced that it has achieved the Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization, which tests knowledge in selling, designing, installing and supporting Cisco's unified data center architecture solutions. This specialization is an extension of Encore's commitment to ensuring that customers benefit from its employees' continued education, current and relevant certifications, and vast hands-on expertise.

Achieving the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization requires the completion of the prerequisites and extensive role-based training -- for an account manager, an architecture systems engineer and three field engineers -- in three essential areas of the Cisco data center architecture:

  • Unified Management - automation, orchestration and lifecycle management solutions that simplify the deployment and operation of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.

  • Unified Fabric - high-performance data and storage networking solutions that streamline deployment, help to ensure quality of experience and reduce network operating costs.

  • Unified Computing - scalable, system-level architecture solutions that anchor and fully integrate all computing, access networking, storage and virtualization environments.

In addition to the new Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization, Encore holds Cisco Advanced Specializations in Routing and Switching, Unified Communications and Wireless LANs. Furthermore, its team members hold over 40 different individualized Cisco certifications -- including the highly coveted CCDA, CCDP, CCNA, CCNP and CCVP. Most employees hold multiple Cisco certifications as well as many other discipline- and product-specific certifications.

"Our entire team is heavily certified, and it's not because we like papering our office walls with fancy certifications and specializations, but because of the value they represent to clients," said Michael Knight, CTO of Encore Technology Group. "When you work with Encore, you know you're getting the latest instructive and applied knowledge because we're always investing in our people and in our partnerships with technology manufacturers. These investments enable us to continually deliver unmatched expertise and quality of service to all Encore customers."

Cisco products are often used in Encore's end-to-end technology solutions for data centers and networks, interactive classrooms, unified communications, physical security, and more.
