DataCore Software Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN's 2016 Partner Program Guide
DataCore, the leader in Parallel-Powered Software, Application-Adaptive Data Infrastructure and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has given DataCore Software a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, 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.

The DataCore Partner Program, which spans Premier and Traditional partners, is a robust program designed to benefit all participants. The program was awarded a 5-Star rating by CRN in recognition of its openness toward partners in ensuring that doing business with DataCore is simple, the comprehensiveness of services offered, and the overall tangible value to those representing DataCore in the channel. DataCore has also focused on expanding its portfolio with Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions and Parallel I/O technologies that provide great competitive differentiation for channel partners that represent DataCore products.

"Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit."

"Our partners are critical to DataCore's success, and we have worked tirelessly to build simple, focused programs designed to help them build and grow their businesses, while providing valuable recognition for those committed to selling DataCore solutions," said Devi Madhavan, vice president of channel and sales enablement at DataCore Software. "It is an honor to receive the 5-Star Partner Program rating from the Channel Company in recognition of our efforts in building a world-class partner program."

The 2016 Partner Program Guide was featured in the April issue of CRN and online.
