DDN Certified AI Channel Program Delivers Maximum Enterprise IT Value and Distributor and Reseller Benefits Worldwide
DDN launched a certified DDN and NVIDIA set of AI solutions that optimizes value and performance in AI integration use cases.  With DDN's A3I (Accelerated, Any-Scale AI) solutions and NVIDIA's DGX A100 systems with NVIDIA InfiniBand and Ethernet networking, VARs and distributors are now able to deliver to enterprise customers feature-rich, easy to deploy and manage intelligent AI infrastructure solutions, which are highly efficient and cost-effective at any scale.

These pre-integrated configurations of DDN A3I with NVIDIA DGX A100 infrastructure solutions are offered in several sizes aligned to customer business need, supporting use cases such as AI recommendation systems, image analysis and natural language processing, and applications such as healthcare, autonomous driving, financial services, and hybrid cloud.

"DDN and NVIDIA deliver robust technologies to industry leaders in the AI, HPC and enterprise data center space. This joint solution delivered as a turnkey offering through Arrow Electronics makes it easy for Arrow's authorized value-added resellers and managed service providers to take that next step in delivering AI solutions to their customers," said Ben Klay, vice president, Alliances at Arrow, a Fortune 110 value-added distributor. Arrow's enterprise computing solutions business aggregates the world's leading technologies and services to enable its global channel ecosystem.

The program includes a complete set of enablement sales tools, follow-up tools, and demand-generation assets to help partners successfully sell and position their AI solutions. On the DDN PartnerLink page, partners will have access to DDN sales and marketing resources which includes solution briefs, enablement trainings, customer presentations, SPIFFs, sales and marketing tools, and more - all in one easy location.

"Data-centric enterprises need to realize newer, faster insights and make better decisions by applying the power of AI for true competitive advantage," said Amy Medeiros, senior vice president, Corporate Marketing and Inside Sales at DDN. "Working with NVIDIA, DDN is reaffirming its commitment to channel partners and their customers with this next-generation AI solution, and providing sales and marketing tools to ensure partners can fast-track customers' AI initiatives with the simplest and most streamlined user experience possible."

Partner programs, like the joint effort with NVIDIA, are a testament to DDN's commitment to empower its partners by providing the building blocks to be successful. This is underscored by DDN, as well as its enterprise division Tintri, being recently acknowledged by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, in the 2021 Partner Program Guide - each with a 5-Star rating. Each year CRN develops its Partner Program Guide to provide the channel community with a detailed look at the partner programs offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies, and distributors. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs.
