Cloudian, Inc., a provider of hybrid cloud storage solutions, has officially unveiled its two-tier Global Partner Program. Certified value-added resellers can mow offer Cloudian HyperStore software and appliances, which deliver highly scalable, S3-compliant hybrid clouds, to their customers.
Alongside Cloudian’s existing partner program in Japan, the new global program already comprises nearly a dozen participating partners in the U.S. and EMEA, including Day1 Solutions, NAS UK, BCLOUD and SYNNEX.
“Building a strong channel is a key sales focus for Cloudian in the coming months and we are committed to channel partners’ long-term success,” said Jon Ash, vice president of worldwide sales at Cloudian. “Our new global program equips certified resellers with support and strategies for their growth, including dedicated access to lead generation, sales training, technical resources and marketing opportunities, in order to help drive all our revenue through the channel—a winning approach for all.”
“Day1 Solutions partners with Cloudian to capitalize on the 100 percent Amazon S3 API compliance, unlimited scalability and multi-tenancy features of the company’s industry-leading HyperStore solutions,” said Luis Benavides, CEO, Day1 Solutions, a new Cloudian partner located in Maclean, Va. “The Cloudian partner program gives us access to differentiated object storage hybrid cloud product offerings, which help maximize our revenue while we provide excellent value to customers.”
“Cloudian’s expertise in hybrid cloud storage highly complements NAS UK’s expertise in network storage, virtualization and intelligent tiered archive,” said Barry Griffiths, managing director, of new Cloudian partner, NAS UK, in Oxfordshire, U.K. “Pioneering new integrated solutions, powered by Cloudian software-defined storage, increases our ability to help customers convert their data into a strategic asset.”
“BCLOUD has worked closely with Cloudian for almost two years, and together we have deployed several extremely large object storage solutions based on Cloudian HyperStore software,” said Roberto Castelli, executive vice president of BCLOUD, Cloudian distributor and Technical Competence Center in EMEA. “Thanks to superior Cloudian products and BCLOUD technical excellence, we see a fantastic opportunity to both expand our current business and quickly acquire future customers.”
