TORONTO — March 1, 2017 — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Arctiq, Inc. is pleased to announce the achievement of Red Hat Premier partnership status, joining only a handful of Premier partners across Canada. Arctiq has achieved the top status of Red Hat partnership in less than one year of operation. In addition to Premier status, Arctiq has also achieved:
The first Ansible certified sales and delivery partner in Canada, and the first Ansible partner to be certified in North America outside of an initial pilot program
- Red Hat Advanced Cloud sales, pre-sales technical, and delivery certification
- Red Hat Advanced OpenShift Container Platform sales, pre-sales technical, and delivery certification
“Arctiq is one of our key strategic partners in Canada. They have helped Red Hat sell, deliver, and support our advanced products, such as Ansible, OpenShift, CloudForms, and Satellite, to our most critical Canadian customers.” says Luc Villeneuve, Country Leader and General Manager of Red Hat Canada.
Arctiq launched in early 2016 to address the services gap in modern transformational technology solutions, focusing on open source software and the services to enable their adoption in organizations across North America. “Red Hat is an incredible partner for Arctiq North America wide.”, says Mike Morrison, Co-Founder of Arctiq. “The relationship helped us quickly focus in on the right set of modern open source solutions for our clients. It has really become a two way street. Arctiq has influenced a significant amount of Red Hat product and services growth in Canada, which has led to Red Hat evolving their partnership program as a result of our mutual success.”
Arctiq provides technical enablement services across consulting, architecture, build, delivery, training and support. Their focused expertise in DevOps, containers, security, systems management, visibility, and reporting provides clients with complete lifecycle support in modern development and software delivery approaches. “Arctiq’s services-led approach is a refreshing change to the constant barrage of vendors pushing products on us” says Massimo Mollica of CBC/Radio-Canada, Canada’s national public broadcaster. “Their knowledge of OpenShift and Ansible is second to none, and Arctiq’s approach has helped CBC adopt and use Red Hat container technologies in development through production.”
Arctiq looks forward to a long and rewarding relationship with Red Hat, growing open source software adoption, and supporting business transformation across North America.
