Cyxtera (NASDAQ: CYXT), a global leader in data center colocation and interconnection services, today announced it has been recognized by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, with a prestigious 5-star rating in its 2023 Partner Program Guide.
This annual guide offers essential information to solution providers as they explore technology providers’ partner programs to find the vendors that will best support their business needs. The 5-star rating is awarded to the companies that go above and beyond in their commitment to nurturing strong, profitable, successful channel partnerships.
“Our partner relationships are core to our growth and success,” said Nicholas Voth, Cyxtera’s Vice President, Global Channel and Alliances Strategy. “We have doubled our channel bookings over the past three years due to the strong growth in our reseller, managed service provider, and strategic alliances segments, which accounted for more than half of our channel bookings in 2022. CRN’s recognition echoes the feedback from our partners that Cyxtera’s global data center platform and commitment to innovation empowers them to offer more technology options and robust solutions to their customers than traditionally found in the data center industry.”
Cyxtera made updates to its Global Partner Program, as well as its Influencer and Agent & Broker referral partner programs. It also expanded its Ecosystem Partner Program, which enables partners to connect to a rich ecosystem of providers, accelerate growth, and sell their solutions via the Cyxtera Marketplace.
In the 2023 CRN Partner Program Guide, vendors were evaluated based on program requirements and offerings such as partner training and education, pre- and post-sales support, marketing programs and resources, technical support, and communication.
“In today’s world, the need for innovation is greater than ever,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers seek vendors that can keep pace with their developing business and evolving client needs. CRN’s 2023 Partner Program Guide delivers deep insight into the strengths of each program, spotlighting the vendors dedicated to supporting their partner community and pushing positive change throughout the IT channel.”
