(The Hosting News) – Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), has today officially implemented its new partner program during the Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2010 in Las Vegas. This newly established program is designed to engage partners who want to include the best dedicated hosting, virtualization and cloud computing technologies as part of the overall services and value delivered to their end-use customers.
Unlike typical channel programs that merely provide reseller discounts, Layered Tech’s new program assigns partners dedicated account managers, sales engineers and project managers. In addition, the program’s new, feature-rich Partner Portal will give partners the ability to order online, as well as access joint-marketing materials and training resources such as webinars to help partners sell more deals and close them quicker. The Partner Portal also will automatically authenticate partners when they sign in and will apply the proper pricing, discounts and special offers based on the partner’s Silver, Gold or Platinum status.
System integrators, VARs, SaaS providers and technology consultants will find Layered Tech’s new partner program particularly appealing because it streamlines and strengthens their ability to sell and deliver dedicated and virtual/cloud computing IT infrastructures and services.
“We’re looking for partners who want to deliver Layered Tech solutions as value-added services within their own core business,” said Todd Abrams, founder and president of Layered Tech. “We developed our new partner program because we recognize that there’s a need within the channel for additional resources and capabilities that can help guide partners’ end-use customers to the right technology solution, whether that’s within a dedicated hosting or cloud computing infrastructure.”
One such partner is San Carlos, Calif.-based Burstorm, which focuses on helping businesses identify the best network, co-location, compute and storage cloud services to help solve complex business and IT problems. Conceived, founded and operated by technology visionaries who have helped lead companies such as Oracle, Yahoo, and Applied Materials, Burstorm became a Layered Tech partner so it could bring the best enterprise-class IT infrastructure solutions to its customers.
“Burstorm consults with very large companies that have complex technology needs. Our role is to navigate customers through the process of defining their technology requirements, identifying the best solution, then procuring and deploying it,” said Burstorm founder and CEO Brandon Abbey. “We partner with Layered Tech because they give us an end-to-end solution whether our clients’ infrastructure needs are in the dedicated or cloud computing or storage environments. Layered Tech’s advanced IT infrastructure gives our large enterprise clients the reliable, cost-effective and efficient IT platforms and services they need to achieve their business goals.”
Founded in 2004, Layered Tech is a leading global provider of managed dedicated hosting, on-demand virtualization/cloud computing and Web services. With eight top-tier data centers around the world, the company’s infrastructure powers millions of Web sites and Internet-enabled applications including e-commerce and software as a service (SaaS). Layered Tech has seen rapid growth in recent years, and in 2009 was ranked in the top 15 percent of Deloitte LLP’s Technology Fast 500 and was also named to the Inc. magazine list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies.
