UK-based The Bunker, a provider of “ultra secure” colocation and cloud hosting services with its data centers housed in former MOD nuclear bunkers, has announced the launch of a partner program that makes its services available to value added resellers (VARs).
Comprised of three accreditation levels – Gold, Platinum and Silver – The Bunker’s partner program provides VARs with access to an array of resources including comprehensive training, a dedicated online portal, lead registration and sales support.
With a range of strategic IT infrastructure providers already signed as its first partners, The Bunker is now inviting other specialist VARs to join and take advantage of its “ultra secure” and “cost effective” UK-based cloud hosting services.
“We recruited experienced Channel Sales Manager, Phelim Scallon, to lead our channel partner program,” said Simon Neal, Director of Data Centre Services at The Bunker. “This is an exciting new phase in the evolution of The Bunker and presents VARs with a compelling opportunity to introduce high margin, year on year recurring, Secure Cloud offerings into their product portfolios. It means VARs can enable their customers to step into the Cloud securely, with UK data sovereignty assured and the peace of mind only our Ultra Secure, ultra available solutions can provide.”
Expanded Partner Offerings
Secure Slice Object Storage is the first product to be made available under The Bunker’s channel partner program. This comprehensive cloud hosting solution would solve the growing challenge of data storage by creating redundant storage with built-in encryption that is infinitely scalable. It provides mid-market firms with a cost-effective solution for safely storing backup and archiving data securely in the cloud. Further offerings from The Bunker will be made available to approved VARs under its channel partner program over the coming months.
“A growing number of VARs see the cloud playing a major role in the future of their business, with Object Storage providing an excellent entry point as it enables them to expand their portfolios without impacting on existing business or their security stance,” added Neal. “With The Bunker’s Object Storage, VARs are assured of full compliance with regulatory mandates. Crucially, it enables them to establish a recurring revenue model alongside traditional sales and realize a significant uplift in margin.”
