Guide Highlights Leading Cloud Partner Programs
Campbell, CA, September 17, 2018 – Panzura, a leader in multi-cloud file services and data management, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Panzura in its 2018 Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.
The CRN 2018 Cloud Partner Program Guide serves as a valuable resource for solution providers navigating the growing cloud marketplace, assisting them in finding technology suppliers with ground-breaking cloud offerings and partner programs. To meet the requirements for inclusion in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, tech vendors must have unique partner program benefits that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.
“With so many options available in the cloud marketplace today, solution providers often have a difficult time deciding which vendors offer the best program to complement their business strategy,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of the Channel Company. “The CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide helps to simplify the process by researching and identifying the cloud partner programs with the most comprehensive combination of resources, support, training, and financial incentives. Our 2018 guide includes a strong combination of innovative companies who support their partners needs and help them to succeed.”
Panzura gives customers the freedom to choose from any public or private cloud provider. Its Freedom Partner Program includes Elite, Premier, and Authorized tiers, each with its own benefits and requirements. The program is designed to match partners to the level that best aligns with their go-to-market strategy and commitment. Panzura Sales Teams are also incentivized to work collaboratively with partners on opportunities. Panzura provides a hybrid storage solution that is 100 percent backed by the cloud and works closely with its partners on joint campaigns and events with the goal of expanding its partners’ cloud capabilities.
“The Panzura Freedom Partner Program is a flexible, proposal-based MDF program designed to work with each partner’s unique business model,” said Jason McKinney, SVP of Alliances, Channel, and CMO at Panzura. “The Partner Portal also features sales tools and resources that enable partner sales and technical teams to actively engage with customers throughout the sales cycle. We’re incredibly proud to be recognized by CRN for the success of our partner program, and our continued dedication to our partners.”
