Editors identify cloud providers, technology vendors with robust cloud programs for the IT channel

DRAPER, UT – Oct. 9, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Backup and disaster recovery leader StorageCraft® Technology Corporation announced today that it has been named to the inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of the leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs designed to benefit members of the indirect IT channel and their cloud initiatives.
This guide offers solution providers a valuable resource for locating and exploring the IT industry’s top cloud technologies, programs and offerings, plus a way to connect with the organizations making these cloud technologies and partner programs available specifically through the IT channel.

“Cloud computing is a game-changing technology, and it’s imperative that the IT channel be able to quickly identify those organizations most deeply committed to helping solution providers grow their cloud-related revenue,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “Each cloud provider and vendor noted by the CRN editors has been chosen based on its robust cloud partner program, as well as the unique and enthusiastic ways in which it has embraced the channel as a go-to-market strategy.”

StorageCraft Cloud Services™ partner program components are part of the award-winning StorageCraft Profit-Ability Partner Program, which allows participants to maximize profits when selling StorageCraft backup and disaster recovery products and services. Earlier this year, the StorageCraft Profit-Ability Partner Program received its second-consecutive 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide.

Available to MSPs and VARs in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, StorageCraft Cloud Services provides companies with the ability to use offsite backups of servers and workstations for complete system and data disaster recovery. StorageCraft Cloud Services includes anytime, anywhere access to data and instant system failover in the cloud. It gives users options ranging from simple archiving to instant virtualization of their servers, which allows businesses to have aggressive recovery time objectives for their systems and near-continuous data protection, while keeping control over their systems and data in the cloud.

“Since its launch in December 2012, StorageCraft Cloud Services is a key part of the StorageCraft Recover-Ability solution, which has become one of the most trusted backup and disaster recovery line of products on the market,” said Curt James, StorageCraft vice president of marketing and business development. “The StorageCraft Profit-Ability Program is seeing rapid growth because we work hard to provide our partners with reliable products and support to increase their ability to maximize profits.”

The Cloud Partner Program Guide is featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com. By combining tools like the new Cloud Partner Program Guide with conferences like The Channel Company’s upcoming NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo, solution providers will have access to the most relevant and up-to-date information available to advance their cloud strategies and solutions.
