Partner Program Winner 2018It’s a first for iland, but we couldn’t be prouder. CRN just released its 2018 Partner Program Guide and not only is the iland Partner Program on the list, CRN awarded iland with a 5-Star rating.

CRN’s annual partner guide lists partner programs from tech vendors around the world. But the programs that get the exclusive 5-Star rating are “an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs,” according to CRN.

Providing businesses and partners with industry leading disaster recovery as a service, cloud backup, and infrastructure as a service and is rewarding, but it’s also great to be recognized with such a prestigious honor. The Channel Company, which owns CRN, looked at each tech vendors’ partner programs based on:

  • Program offerings
  • Partner profitability
  • Partner training, education and support
  • Marketing programs and resources
  • Sales support
  • Communication
It’s not always easy for solution providers to find the right tech vendors to partner with, which is why we developed the iland Partner Program — from the ground up — with partners in mind. Dante Orsini, SVP of Business Development at iland explained, “The program is designed to help our partners build a profitable, long-term cloud business that’s sustainable through rapid market and technological changes.”
