New ClearSky Data Partner Acceleration Program to Drive Growth for MSPs, Resellers, Tech Partners

Posted by Courtney Pallotta on 5/23/17 11:00 AM

business growthThis morning we announced our new Partner Acceleration Program, an effort we launched to give our technology, managed service provider and reseller partners the support they need to get their customers out of the data center and into the cloud. As part of ClearSky Data’s channel-driven go-to-market strategy, the Partner Acceleration Program offers a valuable toolkit to the dozen partners already enrolled – with more to come.

Cloudian and Docker, MSPs Congruity360 and Molnii High Performance Cloud (a Federal Hill Solutions company), and resellers Alliance Technology and Daymark Solutions are among those who can now tap into sales and marketing resources through the ClearSky Data Partner Acceleration Program, which offers:

  • Joint sales activities and promotions
  • Co-marketing programs
  • On-demand lab environments
  • 24/7 support of ClearSky Data’s fully managed service
  • Ongoing training
  • A self-service partner portal

This program is part of our effort to help partners transform how enterprises consume storage with scalable, fully managed, consumption-based services that move them from traditional IT infrastructure to public and private cloud services that boost their bottom lines. This is where our partners want to be – in a place where they offer hybrid solutions that deliver the scale and efficiency of the cloud. By providing ClearSky’s hybrid, multi-tenant service to their customers, our partners deliver flash performance while eliminating the need for backup licenses and replication, and reducing secondary data center footprints for DR.

MSP Congruity360 Chief Operating Officer Mark Shirman explained the opportunity this way in our announcement about the new program: “Our customers are looking for turnkey IT solutions that are customized to their needs and fit seamlessly with their existing environments,” he said, adding, “With ClearSky Data’s high-performance storage service, they’ll gain the speed and flexibility their businesses require, delivered via a cost-effective, fully managed solution.”

Our Partner Acceleration Program participants join ClearSky’s existing technology partners, including Amazon, Elastic, Intel, Splunk, VMware, and data center provider Digital Realty. To learn more about the program, check out the ClearSky Data partners page.
