NEWARK, Calif., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide. The annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. This is the second straight year that Tegile has been recognized with a 5-Star rating from CRN.
Tegile's reseller partner eco-system has seen the addition of hundreds of partners throughout North America and Europe since its inception. By simplifying the sales process and providing the technical resources necessary for resellers to close new business, Tegile allows its partners to offer the unparalleled functionality, flexibility and ease of use of its award-winning technology to customers without the time and costs required by other vendors. Additionally, at the end of 2013, Tegile announced its Agility Pricing Program, a cloud like capacity utilization-based model, another attractive tool for a channel partner's arsenal, allowing their customers to do an outright purchase, a standard lease or go with a cloud/utility model.
To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company's Research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
"Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies and the right approach can make all the difference," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals."
"We are extremely pleased to have been recognized for our efforts in the channel by CRN with a 5-Star rating for the second year in a row," said Chris Noordyke, director of global channels at Tegile. "As a company that sells exclusively through the channel, we recognize that our success is directly tied to the success of our partners. We value the relationships that we have forged with them and will continue to work diligently to ensure that customers' IT infrastructure needs continue to be met with best-in-class products and services that help balance performance, capacity, features and price of their virtualization, file services and database applications."
The 2014 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the April issue of CRN.
