Annual guide recognizes the best channel partner programs in the market


Sunnyvale, Calif. – March 23, 2015 – Maxta®, a leading provider of hyper-converged solutions, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

Maxta is 100 percent committed to building mutually successful business models with partners and works side-by-side with them to help formulate sales strategies and close opportunities. Maxta’s partner program includes deal registrations, discounts, co-marketing support, sales and technical resources and other programs designed to create new opportunities and increase partner profitability.

To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company’s Research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

Unlike other vendors that require users to purchase dedicated appliances with fixed configurations and expensive upgrades, Maxta solutions deliver the flexibility to use any server, any hypervisor, and any storage hardware with the ability to scale compute and storage independently. Maxta’s world-class team has a deep pool of knowledge in storage, virtualization, data center technology and enterprise IT to help organizations realize the vision of a virtual data center by maximizing the promise of hyperconvergence.

“Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized by The Channel Company with a 5-Star program rating. Maxta partners play a strategic role in delivering MaxDeploy™ appliances to end users who seek to gain the benefits of hyperconvergence,” said Carolyn Crandall, Vice President, Maxta. “With Maxta, channel partners are able to provide MaxDeploy appliances running on brand name and white box servers, preserving the customer’s choice in servers while providing dramatically simplified storage management and cost savings.”

The 2015 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at
