Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, has received a 5-Star Rating by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2021 Partner Program Guide. This rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

Over the past several years, the award-winning Scale Computing Partner Community has continued to expand its partner base with both North American and international partnerships, including: Climb Solutions, Titan Data Solutions, ADN Distribution GmbH, Synetcom, and Pedab Group AB. As part of the Scale Computing Partner Community, businesses grow alongside Scale Computing by offering award-winning intelligent edge computing, HCI, and business resilience solutions to enterprises, SMBs, and retailers and more.

“The Scale Computing Partner Community is a crucial part of a shared, long-term growth relationship with the channel,” said Dave Hallmen, chief revenue officer at Scale Computing. “As a channel-led business with more than 1,000 partners globally, we will continue to invest heavily in making the Scale Computing Partner Community successful. Receiving this 5-star rating for several years in a row is a great achievement and demonstrates Scale Computing’s continued commitment to providing our partners with innovative, intelligent, and self-healing edge computing solutions under the business and vendor relationship terms our partners expect.”

Given the importance of IT vendor channel programs, each year CRN develops its Partner Program Guide to provide the channel community with a detailed look at the partner programs offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies, and distributors. Vendors are scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

“As innovation continues to fuel the speed and intricacy of technology, solution providers need partners that can keep up and support their developing business,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide gives insight into the strengths of each organization’s program to recognize those that continually support and push positive change inside the IT channel.”

Scale Computing is also launching its 2021 Platform Series, an interactive, multi-week, virtual event. Partners can tune in, or watch on-demand, as Scale Computing provides key company updates, including the State of the Business, the Scale Computing Product Roadmap, new Scale Computing alliance partnerships, and more.
