Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
Technology solutions and cloud enablement provider Computer Media Technologies (CMT) today announced it has been promoted by NetApp to the Star Partner level in the NetApp Partner Program. Star-level channel partners receive the highest level of Partner Program benefits and commit to partner closely with NetApp to help customers find new ways to architect and manage their data storage infrastructure differently to be more agile.
The NetApp Partner Program offers all channel partners – Star, Platinum, Gold, Silver – the opportunity to partner with NetApp to enhance their customer offerings with industry-leading products and solutions, comprehensive training and certification programs for solutions and services, and technical specialization programs. The Star Partner level rewards partners who have made a strategic investment in NetApp by obtaining high levels of revenue achievement and have shown a dedication to customer success.
Specific program level requirements include:
- Offering a broad range of value-added services and solutions that complement NetApp® storage solutions;
- Receiving training and certification on NetApp products and technologies for independent selling and ongoing support.
“Together with partners like CMT, NetApp is delivering integrated solutions that reduce infrastructure complexity while increasing business agility for our customers,” said Peter Howard, vice president, Global Channel Sales, NetApp. “By investing in our channel program and, more importantly, in our partners, we are creating additional opportunities for our most trusted partners to effectively be more engaged with customers to solve their data storage needs.”
“CMT has received phenomenal support from NetApp and Avnet Technology Solutions through the years, which is reflected in reaching the Star Partner level through the FastPath partner development program,” said Kurt Klein, CEO, CMT. “NetApp storage solutions give us a considerable advantage when we meet with potential customers. The key is the high-end flexibility, scalability and availability that NetApp provides with clustered Data ONTAP, enabling its storage solutions to scale with a customer’s business. These attributes have carried over into our new CMT Cloud Solutions offerings, where NetApp’s data replication and performance technologies have spurred incredible growth for us in both new engagements and moving existing customers into the cloud.”
“For CMT to achieve Star Partner status with NetApp comes as no surprise,” said Jim Kebert, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions. “CMT is a valued Avnet partner that embraced NetApp early and now possesses a deep, proven expertise of NetApp storage offerings. CMT understands the converged and data solutions market and provides their customers with a superior level of service and support for NetApp and the FlexPod® data center platform.”
