ZeroStack announces cloud innovation partner program

FYI, this story is more than a year old

ZeroStack announced the ZeroStack Cloud Innovation Partner Program, its inaugural program for its global partner ecosystem.

Designed for resellers who want to transition to selling cloud platforms and services, the worldwide Cloud Innovation Partner Program is designed to accelerate partners’ ability to bring their customers the benefits of public cloud at a fraction of the cost, and to offer the control, security and performance of a private cloud environment.

The program supports the success of resellers, service providers and distributors, and provides benefits tailored to the capabilities of each partner.

Each partner category has a customized partnership model within the program, which is designed to maximize value for that partner type’s unique business model.

Benefits of the program include customized product access and sales incentives that enhance partner profitability with predictable sales engagement, expertise development with sales and technical training to ensure partners are well-versed on the ZeroStack cloud platform, and marketing and sales tools.

Essentially, the program simplifies and accelerates a partner’s ability to help its customers start experiencing the benefits of migrating away from the expensive V-tax or stopping the spiralling costs of a third-party public cloud.

ZeroStack regional manager Joel Norton says, “ZeroStack’s 100% channel model makes it easy for our partners to work with us to revolutionise their customers’ cloud infrastructure.

“With our new Cloud Innovation Partner Program, our partners can work with us in a simple and predictable engagement model that presents opportunities for new revenue streams and gives our partners the opportunity to show their customers immediate ROI and drive greater partner profitability with our transformational cloud technology.”

ZeroStack uses intelligent software to deliver a self-driving private cloud platform that enables agile DevOps practices with self-service creation of custom workspaces.

Titan System Integration CTO Linus Shi says, “We are always looking for new solutions that streamline our customers’ operations, and ZeroStack’s on-premises cloud platform unifies IT operations in a solution that is easy to deploy and requires little cloud expertise.

“ZeroStack truly put us in the cloud solutions business so we could offer our customers an alternative to the high cost of public clouds with the same ease of use.”

With the ZeroStack private cloud, developers have one-click deployment of DevOps tools with appropriate compute, storage and networking resources while IT operations retain control over the underlying infrastructure.

ZeroStack uses machine learning and AI techniques to deliver an architecture that minimizes IT overhead.

Founded by senior engineers from VMware and Google, the company is funded by Formation 8 and Foundation Capital and is based in Mountain View, California.
