DataCore Software announced it has been named to CRN’s 2012 Partner Program Guide. DataCore was also awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The 2012 CRN Partner Program Guide and CRN 5-Star Rating is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel. CRN’s Partner Program Guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel.
In building the list, UBM Channel Research developed a methodology in which vendors are assessed on information provided in their completed applications. The objective criteria takes into account each vendor’s investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
DataCore is enabling partners to take advantage of the lucrative opportunities in storage by providing access to the foremost software of its kind - the SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor. Demonstrating the company’s continued commitment to the channel, DataCore has simplified the process of selling and implementing the storage hypervisor by announcing significant new tools and enhancements to its Partner Program, which will help create new revenue streams and provide enhanced tools to global channel partners.
