Connected Data Featured in CRN 2015 Cloud Partner Program Guide

Guide Features Leading Technology Vendors that Enable and Accelerate Channel Partners’ Cloud Initiative Success

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – October 5, 2015Connected Data today announced that it has been recognized in the The Channel Company’s prominent CRN® 2015 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide, a list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers’ cloud initiatives.

The CRN 2015 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide provides a valuable resource for solution providers to navigate the booming cloud marketplace by identifying technology suppliers that offer innovative cloud solutions and partner programs. To qualify for participation in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, technology vendors must have a unique set of partner program benefits for solution providers that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.

“Each cloud provider and vendor in the Cloud Partner Program Guide was selected by CRN editors for putting forth substantive cloud partner programs that demonstrate a real buy-in and support of the channel community,” says Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “With the pace of change and fierce competition in the growing cloud market, it’s imperative that a solution provider finds vendor partners capable of giving them consistent, tangible support to grow their cloud-related revenue. The CRN 2015 Cloud Partner Program Guide helps them find those partners that are right for their business.”

“We are delighted to have Connected Data’s Excelerate Partner Program recognized by one of the most highly respected channel intelligence resources in the world, CRN,” said Russ Johnson, COO, Connected Data. “We believe it is a reflection on the fact that the Excelerate Partner Program provides everything our channel partners need to quickly drive new revenue opportunities and fully capitalize on such an extraordinary market opportunity — the exploding growth in demand for private cloud solutions.”

The Connected Data Excelerate Partner Program is a collaborative, profitable partnership that provides customers with their own private cloud solution for file access syncing and sharing that is identical to those from popular public cloud services, on easy to deploy hardware appliances that they own and control. Customers get their own private cloud with dramatic cost savings, improved performance and total control of their data. Partners in turn deliver the cloud experience that customers want with an increased cloud storage portfolio, protected margins and an array of tools including training, deal registration, NFR pricing, marketing assistance and SPIFF programs.

The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at By combining the Cloud Partner Program Guide with The Channel Company’s upcoming NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo, solution providers have access to the most relevant and up-to-date information available to accelerate their cloud strategies and solutions.
