MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 12, 2016 – Tintri Inc., a leading producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Tintri a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is a listing of technology vendors that provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes a subset of companies that offer solution providers premier partnering elements in their channel programs.
Since the launch of its channel program, Tintri has placed an emphasis on overall partner engagement to promote the benefits of Tintri’s products and solutions. Coupled with the acknowledgement of John Schwan, Tintri’s Vice President of Channel Sales, in CRN’s 2016 Channel Chiefs list, Tintri is proud to add to recognition of its channel partner program.
“Tintri is committed to providing VM-aware storage solutions to our partners across the globe,” said Eric Berry, VP, global channel operations. “Our channel partners can differentiate themselves by offering Tintri’s VM-aware storage solutions, which enable them to better serve their highly virtualized customers. This year we’ve invested more in targeted training, certification and tailored marketing support—winning another 5-Star designation is validation that Tintri is committed to the success of our partners.”
“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”
To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Tintri builds smart storage that sees, learns and adapts, enabling IT organizations to focus on virtualized applications and business services instead of managing storage infrastructure. Tintri VM-aware storage eliminates planning and complex troubleshooting by providing VM-level visibility, control, insight and agility. Tintri powers hundreds of thousands of virtual machines running business critical databases, enterprise apps, desktops and mobile apps, and private cloud deployments. Tintri helps global enterprises such as AMD, F5 Networks, GE, NEC, NTT, MillerCoors and Time Warner maximize their virtualization and cloud investments.
