Tegile Systems Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2015 Partner Program Guide
Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This 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 third year in a row 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 2015 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 best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals.”

“To be recognized with a 5-star rating by CRN for three years running is a pretty strong indication that we’re doing something right with our 100 percent channel approach to sales,” said Chris Noordyke, director of global channels at Tegile.  “With no direct sales force, we are extremely dependent on the success of our partners to buoy our success.  Working together to provide customers with the best-in-class products and services they require to satisfy their IT infrastructure needs is a key ingredient to the tremendous growth we’ve experienced over these past few years.  As always, we’re grateful to CRN for the continued recognition and look forward to extending our streak in the coming years.”

The 2015 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at
