SUNNYVALE, CA and YOKNEAM, ISRAEL – October, 6, 2014 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of end-to-end interconnect solutions for servers and storage systems, today announced that it has been named to the inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of the leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs designed to benefit members of the indirect IT channel and their cloud initiatives. This guide offers solution providers a valuable resource for locating and exploring the IT industry’s top cloud technologies, programs and offerings, and contact information for the organizations making these cloud technologies and partner programs available specifically through the IT channel.
“Cloud computing is a game-changing technology, and it’s imperative that the IT channel be able to quickly identify those organizations most deeply committed to helping solution providers grow their cloud-related revenue,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “Each cloud provider and vendor noted by the CRN editors has been chosen based on its robust cloud partner program, as well as the unique and enthusiastic ways in which it has embraced the channel as a go-to-market strategy.”
Mellanox interconnects deliver the speed, scalability, and efficiency necessary to build today’s cloud architectures, and are relied on by some of the largest cloud data centers in the world. Mellanox CloudX™, based on the Mellanox OpenCloud™ reference architecture, simplifies and automates the orchestration of cloud platforms and reduces deployment time from days to hours. Mellanox partners have the unique opportunity to leverage both Mellanox interconnect products, as well as CloudX, to build robust cloud solutions for customers of all sizes. Cloud partners are supported through the Mellanox PartnerFIRST Program, a global channel program designed to give partners a distinct advantage by providing access through a single vendor to complete end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions with best-in-class profitability complete with rich margins, comprehensive training and much more.
“With the advent of cloud computing, businesses need a reliable source for access to organizations entrenched in cloud-based technologies that deliver the performance and value needed to grow revenue for solution providers,” said Darrin Chen, vice president of worldwide channels at Mellanox Technologies. “We are honored to be recognized in the CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide as it validates our commitment to providing superior cloud infrastructure ROI and the best customer experience with seamless integration and support.”
