Nutanix, a San Jose-based company specializing in private, hybrid and multicloud computing, has launched a new partner program designed to meet the needs of allied managed and cloud service providers on a global basis.
“As the demand for managed and cloud services surges, service providers are uniquely positioned to assist an organization’s growth, optimization initiatives, and digital transformation needs,” said Christian Alvarez, SVP Worldwide Channels at Nutanix. “Through the Nutanix Elevate Service Provider Program, we are rewarding our partners’ commitment in delivering high value IT cloud service offerings and helping them maximize profitability and increase their revenue growth potential through premium offerings.”
The new service provider program adds two partnership levels to the overarching Nutanix Elevate program. Authorized Service Providers will include partners new to Nutanix or those delivering Nutanix services to small to mid-market organizations. Professional Service Provider will deliver differentiated services for enterprise organizations. Partners who join the program will be able to take advantage of all the benefits outlined in the Elevate Service Provider Program Guide including training, Not For Resale (NFR) and Nutanix XLAB software licenses, and enablement support. Professional Service Provider partners will be able to take advantage of expanded support from Nutanix including marketing materials, potential market development funds, sales tools, goal-based financial incentives and rebates, and personalized insights in Nutanix’s Partner Portal.
The program features simplified pricing options without minimum commitment levels. Additionally, Nutanix software licenses can be used by service providers at their customer site, in the service provider’s environment, or on Nutanix Clusters running in public cloud environments, including AWS, and AWS GovCloud. Support for Microsoft Azure is said to be forthcoming.
A promotional offer for new partners joining the Elevate Service Provider Program is also under way, featuring training and certification.
The Nutanix Elevate Service Provider Program is intended to further extend the benefits of the Elevate Partner Program to now include service providers globally. The program empowers managed and cloud service providers to build hybrid and multicloud services delivering increased profitability and faster time-to-market.
