The IT Channel’s Top Partner Programs are Highlighted
BRISTOL, England, 30 March, 2020 — StorMagic, simplifying storage at the edge, has received a 5-Star rating from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2020 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of the most rewarding partner programs from technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an elite group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best in their partner programs. StorMagic Channel Program partners recommend SvSAN because it is a simple, flexible, low-cost HCI solution for customers that drives significant incremental revenue.
StorMagic SvSAN provides channel partners with access to the edge and small datacenter markets across all vertical industries including, but not limited to, retail, manufacturing, healthcare and the public sector. SvSAN is a software-defined, hyperconverged (HCI) virtual SAN that enables highly available storage on just two nodes per cluster. StorMagic’s Channel Program expanded in 2019 with several new resellers and distributors including Bechtel in Germany, HPE globally and SHI in the United States.
The Channel Company’s research team analyzed each vendor’s partner program to determine the 2020 5-Star ratings. Each was scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. Based on that assessment, the partner program with StorMagic stands among the elite technology suppliers in the IT channel, providing maximum value and support for solution providers.
“With the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers need partners that can keep pace and support their growing business,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide features insight into the strengths and benefits of each company’s program to identify those that truly support and drive positive change within the IT channel.”
StorMagic is committed to providing its partners with best-in-class tools to facilitate a simple, hassle-free selling process when positioning StorMagic SvSAN in opportunities. New developments within the StorMagic Partner Portal due in the coming months include a streamlined MDF application and approval process, a facility for lead distribution, and a New Partner Resource Pack that will allow any new partner to quickly get up to speed and position SvSAN to their clients. This policy of continual improvement has been recognized by CRN in its award of five stars to the StorMagic Channel Program.
“StorMagic’s channel program experienced tremendous global expansion in 2019, as our channel partners have a clear vision about how SvSAN can help them win deals due to its simplicity and affordability for small datacenters and edge sites,” said Brian Grainger, chief revenue officer, StorMagic. “We are a 100 percent channel focused company and are dedicated to offering the most comprehensive partner resources, support and programs in the hyperconverged space today. StorMagic is honored to be recognized with a 5-Star rating for a second consecutive year in CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide.”
