CHANNEL PARTNERS — CoreSite Realty Corp. (Booth 333) has signed Lifeboat Distribution.
Lifeboat, a distributor of virtualization, business continuity and other complex technologies, now is offering CoreSite’s data center services to its resellers and MSPs.
“As we expand the CoreSite Value-Added Reseller program, we look for partners that deliver the same high-performance solutions and exceptional customer service for which CoreSite is known,” said Dave Sroka, vice president of agent and channel sales at CoreSite. “With Lifeboat, we are partnering with a strong company with a proven record of ensuring excellence in the delivery of technology solutions and services across a robust network of service providers. Lifeboat’s broad portfolio of products enables the delivery of complex IT offerings required by enterprise customers.”
CoreSite and Lifeboat said that as resellers deliver IT products and services that meet enterprises’ critical business needs, the data center component proves essential.
“Managed services and cloud offerings — especially related to disaster recovery — are an important component of the business models for our service partners,” said William R. Botti, executive vice president of Lifeboat Distribution. “With CoreSite’s premium data center services, we see tremendous opportunity — especially in the small business and mid-market space — for resellers to provide their customers with off-site solutions such as backup/recovery, hot data replication, and managed security.”
