Annual Guide Recognizes the IT Channel’s Top Partner Programs
BRISTOL, England –1 April, 2019– StorMagic®, simplifying storage at the edge, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given the StorMagic Channel Program a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the programs that received a 5-Star rating this year, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
StorMagic’s award-winning solution, SvSAN lets channel partners access the edge and small datacenter markets, with a software-defined virtual SAN that enables highly available storage on just two nodes per cluster. StorMagic Channel Program partners open new revenue streams with a differentiated, simple, low-cost hyperconverged (HCI) solution, that drives significant incremental revenue through generous margins in opportunities.
“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”
“StorMagic’s corporate revenue model is 100 percent channel based, and we are honored to be recognized by CRN for our elite partner program,” said Brian Grainger, StorMagic’s chief revenue officer. “SvSAN is a perfect offering to help VARs combat resistance to the expensive, complicated hardware-based HCI products available today. SvSAN delivers simplicity and affordability, so channel partners can help customers deploy at one to thousands of sites quickly and seamlessly—and earn some great margins along the way.”
The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
