Little Rock, Ark.-based Windstream, a provider of advanced network communications, including cloud computing and managed services, has announced that it is certifying channel managers to sell a selection of the company's key data center products. Until now, all of Windstream's data center solutions have been sold by its direct sales channel.
Initially, Windstream will provide channel partner certification for four products - co-location, dedicated servers, disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), and unified email management - with plans to eventually expand the offering to include additional data center products and solutions.
Approximately half of Windstream's channel managers received the data center certification training in Charlotte, N.C., in early February. These channel managers then trained their agents and began selling Windstream data center solutions on Feb. 25. Additional channel managers and agents will complete certification training this summer.
