Linode, a global ‘open cloud’ provider, headquartered in Philadelphia’s Old City, has released its Linode Solutions Partner Program. The channel program would help cloud service partners accelerate revenue. It would also help their clients “innovate faster, modernize their infrastructure, and deliver digital experiences with better ease and affordability.”
As a global cloud hosting provider, Linode has defined three categories of solution providers:
- Resellers – Companies that integrate cloud infrastructure into their offerings and sell to their clients – such as value-added resellers (VARs) or distributors.
- Service Providers – Companies that provide consulting and integration services, cloud migrations, or manage customer application workloads – such as systems integrators (SIs), agencies and managed service providers (MSPs).
- Platform Builders – Companies that are building technology or creating solutions that integrate with or run on the cloud – such as application builders, software vendors and SaaS companies.
Partners in the program would benefit from exclusive pricing, dedicated technical expertise, and marketing support to help accelerate their success. The program also gives partners access to Linode’s worldwide partner community, including the company’s extensive educational content and tools.
AI, Machine Learning, Kubernetes
To support artificial intelligence, machine learning and rendering workloads, Linode has new GPU cloud instances available. And, with the release of Linode Kubernetes Engine, solution partners can leverage this container orchestration platform for deploying and managing modern applications in the cloud.
“Our mission is to accelerate innovation by making cloud computing simple, affordable, and accessible to all,” said Blair Lyon, Vice President of Marketing at Linode. “For the last 16 years, our solution provider partners have helped thousands of companies around the world build their businesses in the cloud. With this new program, we are giving our partners more technology, tools, and resources to further simplify infrastructure management and improve margins.”
The Linode Solutions Partner Program is designed for a wide spectrum of providers, from early-stage or growing organizations building out their cloud solutions; experienced partners with higher monthly spends looking for greater support and benefits; and larger companies that require dedicated solution engineers and custom marketing support.
