Rackspace has launched a cloud computing-focused channel program. Cloud computing was a strong area of growth during a successful fourth quarter for the company.
The cloud program, which will target affiliates and resellers, will be separate from the other channel partner programs at Rackspace. Affiliates earn 5 percent of a customer’s monthly spend for three years, and resellers make money on customer fees. The company currently has about 1,500 partners worldwide.
