The Power of Partnership – Wasabi Partner Network 60 Day Update
After months of work formalizing and launching Wasabi’s Partner Network Program on April 3rd, 2019, here we are 60 days later, blown away by the interest in Wasabi hot cloud storage for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and their clients.
Highlights of the First 60 Days

- 150 New Partners Added since the launch of Wasabi Partner Network Program, bringing our current MSP/CSP partner base up to 887 active partners.
- Self-Service Partner Portal Launched – includes technical onboarding, sales enablement and marketing materials for partners, making training free and accessible for all, 24/7. (Sign in to the Wasabi Partner Portal)
