Winners at VMworld 2015

Just Announced! The MK:Smart Research Initiative case study takes home "Best in Show" and "Best Virtualization for Disaster Recovery Project" at VMworld!

Wiltshire based company, NCE Computer Group, presented with multiple awards at VMworld Europe 2015 and EMEA Partner event, this October in Barcelona.

NCE Computer Group are pleased to announce that the MK:Smart Project to provide a Disaster Recovery (DR) Solution based on Arcserve UDP technology won not only the “Best of VMworld Europe – Virtualisation for Disaster Recovery” Award but also the “Best of VMworld Europe – Best of Show” Award.

These prestigious Awards were announced and presented at the VMworld Europe event held in Barcelona on the 13th October 2015, an event attended by thousands of IT technical professionals and IT business decision-makers from organisations of all sizes, representing a wide range of industries across Europe. The winning solution helps to provide Milton Keynes, one of the UK’s fastest growing cities, with an infrastructure for acquiring, managing and sharing multiple terabytes of data sourced from city systems. 

The MK:Smart was not only an exciting project to work on for NCE but also a great case study for other cities, demonstrating how they can move forward and benefit from implementing modern technical solutions into their infrastructure. More information on the MK:Smart project can be found on

“Having been shortlisted for the Virtualisation for Disaster Recovery Project Award we were flattered to have reached this recognition, but to win the Award amongst the European community and at such a well-respected industry event is an incredible achievement” said John Greenwood, Director of Sales – Solutions at NCE. “To then discover that the Solution had received the Best of Show Award is unbelievable. As a Premium Partner of Arcserve with the Unified Data Protection (UDP) technology integral to the solution that we provided, we knew that this was perfect for the MK:Smart requirement and it is great that the judges have recognised this.”

The continued success and growth of the NCE business was also recognised at the Nexsan EMEA Partner event in Barcelona, where the Largest Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Reseller Award for Nexsan by Imation Storage Solutions, was presented to NCE, their partner of over 15 years. With the Nexsan portfolio evolving from the SATAboy and SATAbeast products into the current E-Series, NST, Assureon and Secure Data Movement Architecture (SDMA) technology, NCE have invested in ensuring that the sales & technical resource are skilled to provide, install and maintain solutions featuring the complete family of products – both from a current and legacy perspective.
