Designed to reward partners who drive demand for services

Arista Networks has launched a new EMEA channel programme, designed to reward partners who drive demand for services and bring value-add services to the market

The Arista Networks A-Plus Partner Programme builds upon its existing US initiative, and features three partner level distinctions – Registered, Authorised and Elite.

Both the Authorised and Elite Partner levels are claimed to benefit from extensive training in Arista’s services as well as access to sales and marketing collateral and support.

According to the company the new programme “cements” its commitment to the channel, its sole route to market in the region, and provides the foundations to enable our partners to grow with Arista.

The company’s first Elite Partner is the Ampito Group, which specialises in a number of key sectors.  Arista said the group had just completed its formal accreditation through the new EMEA partner programme.

Appcelerate and Vanix, had achieved Elite status having deployed a number of services from managed service through to Cloud into a number of key verticals including Financial, Gaming, Media, HPC and Virtualisation utilising Arista architecture.

Xantaro has been named as Arista’s first Elite Partner in Germany. The company has been an official partner of Arista Networks since June 2010 and delivered the first implementations of the terabit data centre switches in Germany.
