Reseller of the Year Awarded to Esteem by Sun Microsystems

Esteem Systems, one of the UK’s leading IT service providers, has won Sun Microsystems’ Reseller of the Year Award 2007.

Esteem has been recognised by Sun Microsystems for its long-standing commitment to the relationship and its innovative work winning the first large-scale contracts for Sun’s AMD Opteron platform to run Microsoft, VMware and Citrix environments.

Esteem plans to continue to expand its relationship with Sun, playing a key role in the company’s growth of IT lifecycle consulting and managed services.

Paul Flannery, Channel Sales Director, Sun Microsystems, explains, “Esteem is a worthy award winner and continues to impress with its expertise in Sun technology and services, which translates into strategic business wins and long term clients. Partners such as Esteem are vital to Sun as we continue to innovate and help companies increase business performance on the network.”
