When you’re on a mission to achieve greatness, gathering the right people around you makes all the difference in the world.

You boost each other up, complement each other’s strengths and weakness and most importantly, do more together than you could each do separately.

It’s no secret that Panzura is growing incredibly fast.

2020 saw us break multiple “biggest and best ever” records, including closing our biggest deal ever, then tripling that with a "bigger" biggest deal ever, then finishing the biggest year ever.

- Zach LaVoie, Director of Global Channels

Our channel partners have played an enormous role in selling and supporting the Cloud Awards’ Best Hybrid Cloud Solution for 2020-21.

We love our partners

From long-time AEC-focused partners like Microdesk, Applied Software and U.S. CAD to enterprise heavyweights like SHI and Presidio, our reinvigorated channel program, and our new customer-first attitude have attracted the attention of channel leaders and sales reps alike.

One of our favorite comments over the past 6 months has been “I started this deal with one company and finished it with a completely different one… and I adore the difference it’s made!”

The feeling’s mutual 🤗

We have amazing channel partners and they did an incredible job of selling and deploying Panzura’s hybrid cloud solution in 2020.

We celebrate our partners

As our virtual 2021 Partner Sales Kick Off draws to a close (we’re crushed we couldn’t do it in style in Vegas, but we made do), we are incredibly proud to announce the winners of the 2020 Panzura Partner Awards.

This year, we’ve separated awards into 2 categories so we can make a big deal out of as many people as possible.
