Software-defined storage provider Hedvig on Wednesday announced its new CloudScale Partner Program aimed at resellers. The goal is to speed the replacement of aging, costly storage infrastructure.
The program provides resellers with: training on the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform and software-defined storage (SDS); reduced implementation costs; discounts and access to Hedvig technology alliances. With the program, Hedvig joins forces with reseller partners across the United States and Europe, including ACS, Damecon, Fabrics4Clouds and Layer 8
Phil Williams, Hedvig’s vice president of business development and channels, tells Channel Partners the program has been up and running since December, but “now we are unveiling the details and opening it up to the global reseller community.”
“Now was the right time to launch the program for two reasons,” he said. “First, enterprise demand for software-defined infrastructure has increased significantly. For storage alone, ESG estimates that 94 percent of mid-to-large enterprises are interested in or planning to deploy software-defined storage. Our program helps global partners capitalize on this inflection point in the industry. Second, we have been handpicking and onboarding partners that have practices aligned with our customer use cases, especially private and hybrid cloud, big data and server virtualization. This allowed us to test the processes and business infrastructure needed to provide a stellar partner experience. All of that has been worked out, so it’s time to open the gates wide.”
