DataCore Software Given 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2017 Partner Program Guide

Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs

Fort Lauderdale, FL, April 10, 2017 – DataCore , a leading provider of Software-Defined Storage and Hyper-converged Infrastructure solutions powered by Adaptive Parallel I/O technology, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given DataCore Software a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

“DataCore deserves the CRN 5-star rating not only because of their partner enablement proficiencies, but because their products drive additional value for DataCore partners – especially when combined with an alliance partner like Lenovo so as to deliver a true, ‘all in’ solution,” stated Mark Wylie, CEO at Flagship Solutions Group. “Even though hyper-converged computing is a current trend, DataCore’s solution has provided capabilities and benefits inherent to hyper-converged for years. Now with a revamped Partner Program, I see DataCore able to capitalize on a real inflection point in the industry.”

To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

The DataCore Premier Partner Program encompasses a prestigious global network of DataCore-authorized solution providers, value-added resellers, and system integrators. Partners have access to invaluable resources, skillsets and venues designed to offer differentiated competitive advantage, stronger account control and higher customer retention. DataCore has recently developed a new Americas channel team and partner-enablement strategy, including the onboarding of new DataCore Target Partners as go-to resellers.

“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”

“It is critical to understand a partner’s business and goals and how your products fit into their portfolio to create the best value,” said Devi Madhavan, vice president, Channel Sales & Enablement at DataCore Software. “DataCore offers our partners a number of different options based on our unique Parallel I/O technology that delivers higher performance, greater application workload productivity and cost savings by leveraging the multi-core advances and cost efficiency of off-the-shelf x86 server platforms.”

The 2017 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
