Maxta Inc., a provider of hyper-converged and software-defined storage solutions in Sunnyvale, Calif., has expanded its Maxta Value-Added Partner (MVP) Program that enables partners to capitalize on the increasing adoption of virtualized platforms by providing hyper-converged solutions that simplify IT and reduce cost by leveraging standard hardware.
In addition to opportunities reselling and deploying products and services based on Maxta’s MxSP software-defined storage into virtual server environments, channel partners can now provide customers with MaxDeploy preconfigured and prevalidated hyper-converged solutions. MaxDeploy reference architectures have been established for all major server vendors in addition to Intel and Supermicro “white label” servers for companies looking to leverage the cost benefits of using standard hardware. MaxDeploy reference architectures are designed to run on existing x86 servers, providing additional infrastructure ROI.
The MVP Program includes a set of resources through which partners can create, promote, and sell their Maxta-based solutions and services. The company’s goal is to enable partners to take advantage of the sales, marketing, and technical benefits that Maxta offers to support sales of hyper-converged and software-defined storage solutions, build skills and foster new market opportunities, and increase revenue and profitability.
Maxta offers two partner levels in the MVP Program: MVP and MVP Elite. MVP partners are expected to invest time in becoming competent in Maxta solutions and can participate in the Maxta deal registration and sales incentive programs. They also have access to Maxta sales and sales engineering for assistance with opportunity identification and deal closure.
MVP Elite partners must meet a minimum set of requirements, including the completion of Maxta sales and technical training and the ability to demonstrate Maxta solutions. They are eligible to deliver Level 1 and Level 2 support for Maxta solutions and may receive joint marketing funding from Maxta.
