The ATLAS Partner Programme includes access to an online deal registration centre, as well as a set of sales assets. And the Scality Training & Self-Certification Portal is available to Channel and Alliance partners’ technical staff to provide training and certification.

HPEAt launch, the Scality ATLAS Partner Programme has 25 members, and over 240 people worldwide have been certified using the Scality Training & Self-Certification Portal. ATLAS Partner members with Scality-Certified employees include AXEZ, Broadband Tower, Comport, Computacenter, Dell, HPE and Seagate, among others.

“Software-defined storage is an important market for Computacenter, and a real need for customers,” said Claire Palassin, group partner management director at Computacenter. “Offering the Scality RING allows us to offer our customers a more complete enterprise IT strategy.”

Scality bridges the gap between application vendors, industry standard hardware providers and customer storage scale, durability, cost and performance requirements. The software-defined storage RING allows users to store and access billions of objects across standard x86 hardware.

Emilio Roman, Scality vice president of sales EMEA, said: “In order to thrive, companies typically need to be part of a balanced and complete ecosystem. If this is not the case they most likely fail. In the European market, Scality’s channel makes up nearly 100 percent of our sales, and we rely on the most strategic and effective resellers in the market to take solutions to our end-users.”
