LightEdge Partners with AVANT Communications

LightEdge, a provider in compliant cloud and colocation for more than 25 years, has formed a strategic partnership with AVANT Communications to drive digital transformation and deliver enhanced enterprise solutions to underserved markets.

The collaboration is the newest of LightEdge’s channel partnerships, an area on which the company is focusing after experiencing 100 percent year-over-year growth in revenue from the channel. The partnership expands AVANT’s addressable market by offering compliant, Tier III facilities to underserved Tier II and III geographical markets for production and disaster recovery workloads.

“By drawing from both companies’ expertise and resources, LightEdge and AVANT can provide better collective solutions for businesses across various industries that demand the highest levels of availability, security, and performance,” said Jim Masterson, CEO of LightEdge. “Enterprises in less populated cities such as Des Moines, Omaha, and Phoenix need competitive solutions to navigate the increasingly complex digital world. This strategic alliance gives LightEdge one more tool for offering clients innovative solutions tailored to their unique needs.”

AVANT provides value to its network of Trusted Advisors with original research, channel sales assistance, training, and tools to guide decision-making around IT services that promote business growth. A central component of its services is the AVANT platform for IT decision-making.

Under the partnership, LightEdge will join the AVANT ecosystem, empowering AVANT’s Trusted Advisors with access to LightEdge’s portfolio of secure and compliant cloud, colocation, managed services and IT solutions.

“AVANT’s strong channel network, combined with LightEdge’s secure and compliant services, positions the partnership to address evolving digital landscape challenges faced by businesses today,” said Samantha Zuniga, VP of Vendor Engagement for AVANT. “Working as a team, we can do even more to help drive excellent outcomes for our clients.”
