AppFormix Launches Channel Partner Program for its Award-winning Cloud Service Optimization Platform


Cloud service optimization startup AppFormix today announced the launch of its Channel Partner Program. The AppFormix Channel Partner Program makes AppFormix software available to partners and their customers on a national and global level and aims to drive top-line revenue and profitability, a win-win for both partners and AppFormix. 

New partners can take the first steps to join the program via the AppFormix Channel Partner Program site, where you can view a list of current AppFormix partners.

The AppFormix cloud service optimization platform uses advanced analytics and orchestration to improve application performance in hybrid and private clouds. The AppFormix dashboard allows cloud infrastructure operators and application developers to share a common interface to monitor and manage application performance in real time. The AppFormix software also provides sophisticated hardware capacity planning tools to establish dynamic rules for workload allocation and to help predict when and where additional resources will be needed, before constraints occur.

“The launch of our Channel Partner Program is perfectly timed to enable our partners to meet a growing customer need and create a significant new revenue stream,” said George Youhana, who runs the Channel Partner Program for AppFormix, “With enterprise workloads increasingly shifting to cloud and with cloud adoption of all types—public, private and hybrid—accelerating rapidly, the need for AppFormix software is acute. AppFormix is being recognized by industry leaders for its innovation and exceptional performance in cloud optimization. Now, our channel partners will be able to offer the cloud optimization solution that their customers are clamoring for.”

The Channel Partner Program is the next step in AppFormix’s global growth strategy, which has rapidly accelerated this spring, fueled by several major announcements and industry awards. In early May, AppFormix received three Best of Interop awards at Interop Las Vegas: Best Startup, Best Cloud/Virtualization Product and the Grand Award.

These awards follow on the heels of a recent announcement by Rackspace that it will license AppFormix software and integrate it as part of its OpenStack private cloud solutions, making Rackspace the first cloud service provider to deliver a new level of cloud optimization by offering complete workload isolation using Intel Resource Director Technology (RDT). In March, AppFormix and Intel announced a deal to integrate AppFormix software into Intel’s newest processor family, leveraging Intel RDT to manage workloads and containers at the processor level.

In addition to the Rackspace and Intel RDT integration news, the startup announced earlier this spring that it had successfully integrated its technology with the Kubernetes container cluster management project for public and private clouds, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
