Panasas Featured in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide for Third Consecutive Year

IT channel’s annual guide recognizes Panasas Accelerate as a top partner program

SUNNYVALE, CA – April 3, 2019 Panasas®, a proven leader in high-performance computing (HPC) data storage solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Panasas for the third consecutive year in its Partner Program Guide. The annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs offered by technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel.

The Channel Company’s research team took a variety of factors into account when assessing each supplier’s partner program. Considerations included candidates’ investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

The Panasas Accelerate partner program brings together a world-class community of profitable and successful channel partners who leverage the strength of Panasas ActiveStor®, a scale-out data storage appliance featuring the PanFS® portable parallel file system, which is designed for extreme performance and scalability. The Panasas partner program balances aggressive front-end discounts and deal-registration fidelity with an attractive ‘marketing-seed’ demo-system initiative to help drive partner-led proof of concepts (POCs).

“We have been able to deliver valuable solutions to our customers thanks in large part to the strong relationships we have built with our channel partners, and we are honored that CRN has once again recognized our program in this year’s Partner Program Guide,” said Philip Crocker, senior director of global channel marketing and business development at Panasas.

“ActiveStor Ultra with the PanFS file system running on industry-standard commodity hardware has created new and exciting opportunities for channel partners who are looking to deliver top HPC performance levels combined with exceptional enterprise-grade reliability, manageability, and cost efficiency.”

The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at
