Chicago-based Nerdio, which augments the deployment of virtual desktops in Microsoft Azure, has rolled out new tier structures and benefits for its partner program supporting MSPs and other organizations serving the SMB channel.
“We are investing heavily to make transitioning to Microsoft Azure the obvious choice for MSPs and their clients,” said Joseph Landes, the company’s Chief Revenue Officer and Co-founder. “With the advancements Microsoft is making around cloud technologies and programs, it is an invigorating time to be part of the Microsoft ecosystem.”
Under the updated program, partners receive product discounts of 25%-75%, based on tier; access to partner managers to assist with pre-sales; engineering support; various sales tools; and MDF.
Partners can buy into a tier above their qualified tier by meeting the required spend limit to increase the amount of internal use licenses, license discounts, engineer deployments, and certifications.
The company plans to announce program changes specific to enterprise partners toward the end of this calendar year.
Nerdio Manager for Enterprise is a packaged Azure application that runs in users’ own tenant. Nerdio Manager for MSP supports MSPs in deployment, management, and optimization of virtual desktop environments in Microsoft Azure through multi-tenant management.
The changes are intended to equip service providers with the tools, education, and resources needed to succeed with Microsoft Azure and its virtual desktop services.
