Company promises that resellers will be able to easily build private clouds for their customers

Platform9 has announced a channel partner programme designed for resellers, service providers and systems integrators focused on cloud computing. It enables them to more efficiently design and deploy flexible, enterprise-ready OpenStack private clouds for their customers, said Platform9.

The Platform9 solution transforms an organisation’s existing servers into an “AWS-like agile, self-service private cloud within minutes” – enabling organisations small or large to run their private clouds efficiently, at scale, while leveraging latest open source innovations, the company says.

OpenStack-Logo[1]“Our new channel programme helps our partners capitalise on the significant business opportunity surrounding customers’ cloud transformation needs. Platform9’s unique SaaS-based OpenStack solution enables partners to deliver immediate value to their customers while enhancing their status as a private cloud ‘trusted advisor’,” said Adam Ulfers, Platform9 vice president of sales.

He said: “Most importantly, we can help increase our partners’ share of cloud spending by extending their solutions and services as they build out their customers’ data centre ecosystems.”

The Platform9 Channel Partner Program is said to give partners the tools and resources to implement an on-premises private cloud for their customers, that delivers the same easy self-service provisioning, open APIs, and integration with automation frameworks that users have come to expect with public cloud offerings.

The programme offers access to Platform9’s sales and marketing support, joint marketing and demand generation programmes, deal registration and compensation on all contracted services.
