StorageCraft Survey Reveals Big Gains for Channel Organizations Expanding into Cloud Services

A survey of U.S. channel organizations conducted by†StorageCraft†quantifies the business benefits to channel organizations expanding into cloud services. The survey reveals increased per customer and quarterly revenue, expanded new customer acquisition, and improved customer retention as a direct result of adding cloud services to their portfolios.††

While only 13 percent added cloud services to win new customers, and 10 percent to increase revenues per customer, they will likely be more than satisfied with the business results.†

  • 23% reported they have won new customers

When asked about the impact of cloud services on quarterly revenue

“This survey highlights the richness of market demand and the undeniable business benefits that cloud services bring to channel organizations,” said†Shridar Subramanian, vice president marketing and product management at StorageCraft. “StorageCraft Cloud Services and purpose built DRaaS channel grew four-fold in the last year alone. Much of this growth can be attributed to the sophistication of our offering which, unlike AWS and other third-party services, delivers the ability to recover and restore both physical and VM environments within minutes. For the channel this means they can reap the business rewards from being able to meet and exceed their customers’ RPO and RTO targets effortlessly.”
