COSTA MESA, Calif., March 26 — Emulex Corporation, the leader in network connectivity, monitoring and management, today announced significant enhancements to its Connect Partner Program, including a new loyalty program, enhanced reseller training tools, and streamlined deal registration and web enablement. The Connect Partner Program will also be extended to Emulex reseller partners in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region in 2013. The Emulex Connect Partner Program arms resellers with the tools, training, and incentives to drive best-of-breed I/O technologies and joint solutions into the channel, enabling the highest-performing data centers across the globe.
"The next generation of our Connect Partner Program is designed to maximize partner profits and revenues, while helping them bring high-performing Fibre Channel and network convergence solutions to the market, enabling customers' leading-edge applications such as big data, software defined networking, I/O caching and server virtualization deployments worldwide," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex. "We've done this by giving partners faster access to cash incentives, extending some top tier benefits to smaller loyal resellers, and expanding our lead generation efforts for the channel, based on their direct feedback. Additionally, this year, we're extending all of these benefits to our partners in the APAC region."
Emulex's three-tiered partner community, which has been designated for the third straight year as one of CRN Magazine's 5-Star Partner Programs (see accompanying release here), provides partners with the tools, training, support and information required to promote and sell network and storage connectivity solutions. New enhancements and benefits of the Connect Partner Program include:
"The loyalty program was a compelling reason for us to join the Connect Partner Program, in addition to the revenue incentives, lead generation and competitive pricing, which will enable us to maximize our profits," said Gary Johnston, president, IT Partners. "The onboard process for new members is clear and streamlined, and we have been very pleased with interoperability testing, as well as the process to get up-to-speed quickly on the market and key selling points for customers' next-generation data centers."
