The Bunker’s data centres are former MoD cold war nuclear bunkers, upgraded with millions of pounds of investment in networking infrastructure, fire suppression, power and cooling. Comprised of three accreditation levels – Gold, Platinum and Silver – The Bunker’s partner programme provides VARs with access to resources including training, a dedicated online portal, lead registration and sales support.

With a range of strategic IT infrastructure providers already signed up as its first partners, The Bunker is now inviting other specialist VARs to join and take advantage of its encrypted, ultra secure cloud services.

Simon Neal, director of data centre services at The Bunker, said: “This is an exciting new phase in the evolution of The Bunker and presents VARs with a compelling opportunity to introduce high margin, year on year recurring and secure cloud offerings to their product portfolios.

It means VARs can enable their customers to step into the cloud securely, with UK data sovereignty assured and the peace of mind only our ultra secure, ultra available solutions can provide.”

Secure Slice Object Storage is the first product to be made available under The Bunker’s channel partner programme. This cloud solution solves the growing challenge of data storage by creating “redundant storage with built-in encryption that is infinitely scalable”, said The Bunker. It provides mid-market firms with a cost-effective solution for safely storing backup and archiving data securely in the cloud.

Further offerings from The Bunker will be made available to approved VARs under its channel partner programme over the coming months, the company said.
