Data protection solutions provider Acronis has launched the Acronis Partner Program for Cloud, an extension of the company’s Global Partner Program. The Acronis Partner Program for Cloud is designed to accelerate cloud data protection services revenue with a subscription model for service providers, distributors, and cloud resellers. The program boasts leading solutions, resources, programs, and incentives to help partners profit from cloud data protection services, which include backup, disaster recovery, and file sync and share.
According to the company, the Partner Program for Cloud supports any deployment model, including service provider-hosted, Acronis-hosted and hybrid, and any business model with licensing flexibility. This includes turnkey cloud data protection services with minimal integration as well as offerings that are more deeply integrated into partner technology and services portfolios.
The program uses multiple tiers to distinguish and reward a partner’s sales performance, certification commitment, and marketing collaboration. Incentives include stackable profit margins, incremental margins for deal registration, rebates and incremental accelerators.
Additionally, the program features simplified partner on-boarding, free web-based sales tools and enablement programs, technical training, marketing programs and demand generation support, as well as co-op and market development fund programs.
“We’ve taken our vast expertise in managed services and built a best-in-class partner program for service providers that extends our global partner program and makes it easier than ever for both existing and new partners to move to the cloud,” says John Zanni, chief marketing office, Acronis. “We are 100 percent focused on the cloud partner model. Our goal is to bring thousands of new service provider partners and cloud resellers onboard worldwide in 2016.”
