iland Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide

Cloud service provider recognized for its top partner program for the second year in a row 

Houston, April 1, 2019 – iland, an award-winning global cloud service provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, awarded the iland Partner Program with a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

The iland Partner Program allows resellers, managed service providers (MSPs) and consultants the opportunity to partner with a global cloud leader and establish a recurring revenue stream with profitable cloud services. iland’s no-cost, easy-to-join partner program allows partners to offer infrastructure as a service (IaaS), disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) and cloud backup as a service (BaaS) in iland’s VMware-based cloud.

“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition again, because it shows our ongoing commitment to our partner community,” said Dante Orsini, Senior Vice President of Business Development at iland, who was recently recognized as a CRN Channel Chief. “We’re constantly challenging ourselves and collaborating with our partners to improve the quality of the iland Partner Program, because our goal is to continually provide them with the tools to build a sustainable cloud practice in the midst of market and technology changes. Our partners are truly integral in our ability to deliver The Cloud Platform for Resilient Businesses™.”
