Tegile Earns 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2017 Partner Program Guide for Fifth Year in a Row

Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has awarded Tegile a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide recognizes an elite subset of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT Channel while offering the best partnering elements in the channel programs. This is the fifth consecutive year that Tegile has earned recognition from CRN with a 5-Star rating.

Tegile's channel partner program includes more than 475 resellers across North America and Europe. To help partners differentiate through product innovation, Tegile launched IntelliFlash Cloud Platform, a rack scale all-flash platform designed for Fortune 1000 enterprises, at VMworld 2016. IntelliFlash Cloud Platform and all Tegile all-flash or hybrid arrays are also supported by Tegile IntelliCareTM, the company's comprehensive customer care program. Tegile IntelliCareTM includes Lifetime Storage, a program that delivers an entirely new storage system to customers, including the controller and media, every three to five years with a flat maintenance contract. This, combined with IntelliPay, an agility pricing program that allows customers to pay for storage per gigabyte-month as they use it, enables channel partners to deliver cloud-like pricing and efficiency to enterprises.

"Storage plays a critical role in helping businesses scale and uncover new growth opportunities. The channel is well positioned to help them uncover these possibilities, driven by the latest advances in storage," said Sherman Tam, director of channel & partner marketing at Tegile. "This 5-star rating from CRN is a reflection of our dedication to our partners' success and ability to meet demands for solutions that are innovative, cost-effective and reliable."

"For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits."

To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. The 2017 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at To learn more about Tegile or become a Tegile partner, visit:
