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

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

“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

“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.”
