With Platform9’s Cloud Partner Program, valued-added resellers (VARs) would have an opportunity to quickly scale their offerings to address market needs without having to build out new teams and core services.
The Platform9 Cloud Partner Program would equip partners with extensive training and tools to successfully deploy Platform9 Managed OpenStack and Managed Kubernetes solutions. Partners can participate in a certification program as well, for in-depth training on everything from identifying a potential private or hybrid cloud opportunity to the best practices, deployment and management of Platform9’s open cloud solutions.
“We often hear from resellers that the No. 1 challenge they face today is keeping up with quickly changing technology and building enough expertise to confidently sell new cloud services to customers,” said George Vargas, channel sales director at Platform9. “We see a huge opportunity here for resellers to extend value through our Managed OpenStack and Managed Kubernetes offerings, both of which can be up and running in days. By working with the leading technology resellers in the community, we can collaborate to bring cloud services to the masses and provide the right tools for businesses undergoing digital transformation.”
As part of the Platform9 Cloud Partner Program, Platform9 also introduced collaborations with partners Groupware Technologies, Insight, Technologent, FusionStorm and HPM Networks.
The launch of the partner program comes at a time of “significant growth” and momentum for Platform9, including a $22 million Series C funding round to power global expansion and boost sales and marketing teams. Earlier this year, Platform9 announced the launch of Managed Kubernetes – an infrastructure-agnostic, SaaS-managed offering.
