Continuity Software, which provides service availability risk management solutions, has announced the launch of its global AvailabilityGuard Channel Partner Program, for disaster recovery across clients’ physical, virtual and cloud environments.
Continuity Software had an informal program that includes VARs, systems integrators, distributors, MSPs and consultants in select countries. The enhanced formalized program is now open to new channel partners around the world, enabling them to offer the AvailabilityGuard software suite to customers in their respective markets.
The AvailabilityGuard Channel Partner Program has a few benefits, like early access to product roadmaps and the ability to influence product direction; extensive cooperative programs (i.e., may include co-developed Webinars and seminars, co-branded collateral, white papers, and technical documentation, e-mail campaigns and so on; early deal registration to prevent channel conflict and in-region, pre-sales and post-sales support.
“The bottom-line objectives of Continuity Software’s new AvailabilityGuard Channel Partner Program are quite simple,” said Lior Itai, director of channel and business development at Continuity Software. “Our first goal is to enable our partners to enhance their trusted advisor status, increase sales success, shorten the sales cycle and increase profitability. Our second and equally critical goal is to make it as easy as possible for IT organizations around the world to obtain and deploy our AvailabilityGuard software in order to ensure their applications and information services remain highly available, protected and instantly recoverable in the event of an outage or disaster.”
