Egenera Partner Network selected as one of the cloud providers, technology vendors with robust cloud programs for the IT channel

BOXBOROUGH, Mass.--()--Egenera, a leader in converged infrastructure and cloud management software, announced today that it has been named to the inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide. The CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide highlights the leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs designed to benefit members of the indirect IT channel and their cloud initiatives. Egenera’s Partner Network drives sales of the industry’s only integrated and open converged infrastructure and cloud computing solution to resellers, system integrators and consultants.

The Egenera Partner Network includes more than 55 partners across North America, including 10 new partners within the past 12 months. The network supports channel partners by delivering the tools to architect, implement and support converged infrastructure and cloud solutions based on the award-winning Egenera Cloud Suite software. The network is tiered into different levels, ranging from an entry level certified partner to enterprise status to premier, so that Egenera can provide a more tailored service to complement their partners’ needs.

“The Egenera Partner Network helps make our partners successful in today’s highly competitive environment,” said John Humphreys, VP of marketing at Egenera. “Over the past four years, we have made it easier for many IT service firms to offer differentiated cloud services. We are pleased to be part of the CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide, which will be a great asset to the firms who use it.”

This guide offers solution providers a valuable resource for locating and exploring the IT industry’s top cloud technologies, programs and offerings, and a way to connect with the organizations making these cloud technologies and partner programs available specifically through the IT channel.

“Cloud computing is a game-changing technology, and it’s imperative that the IT channel be able to quickly identify those organizations most deeply committed to helping solution providers grow their cloud-related revenue,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “Each cloud provider and vendor noted by the CRN editors has been chosen based on its robust cloud partner program, as well as the unique and enthusiastic ways in which it has embraced the channel as a go-to market strategy.”

The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com. By combining tools like the new Cloud Partner Program Guide with industry conferences and events, solution providers will have access to the most relevant and up-to-date information available to advance their cloud strategies and solutions.
