SimpliVity Adds Cloud Providers, More to Partner Program

**Editor’s Note: Click here for a list of December’s important channel-program changes you should know.**

Hyperconverged infrastructure provider SimpliVity is enhancing its partner program, including new programs for cloud-service providers and technology alliances.

The Massachusetts-based company also added new training and initiatives for its partners. Its PartnerAdvantage program launched a year-and-a-half ago.

“Today, we’re expanding the scope of our partner program by adding new revenue and engagement opportunities, demonstrating our steadfast commitment to our partner ecosystem and their customers,” said Gregory Hope, the company’s vice president of global channel sales.

The first addition is a new Cloud Service Provider Program, which will allow partners to sell on-demand cloud services like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). SimpliVity touts its consumption-based pricing model as a key element of the program.

“As a hybrid-cloud service provider, we understand how unanticipated usage peaks or valleys can significantly impact the bottom line,” Core BTS CEO Walter Cook said. “However, SimpliVity’s program will provide Core BTS with the peace of mind that our, and our customers’ investments, are stable and we will only be paying for the services that are consumed.”{ad}

SimpliVity also announced a Technology Alliance Program, which includes industry giants Oracle, Cisco and Red Hat. The program is designed to help technology providers and system integrators incorporate the company’s hyperconverged infrastructure.

Hope said SimpliVity has “focused 100 percent on the channel” since its inception. It joined the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance earlier this month. It launched the third version of its OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform in August, which is designed to be “vendor-agnostic.”
