March 30, 2022

BOSTON - March 29, 2022 — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, has received a prestigious 5-star rating from CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2022 Partner Program Guide.

CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide defines the most notable partner programs from industry-leading technology vendors that provide innovative products and flexible services through the IT channel. Companies are scored based on their investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.The 5-star rating is only achieved by select vendors that deliver the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs to help push growth and positive change.

Wasabi hot cloud storage has redefined the industry with a solution that is 1/5th the cost of Amazon S3, with no fees for egress or API requests and no vendor lock-in. Businesses are able to securely and affordably store all of their data and access it the moment they need it. It’s also an ideal product for the channel because every organization needs to store data and Wasabi is simple to understand, bundle with other products and sell to address the largest challenges facing organizations today.

Recognizing the importance of the channel ecosystem, Wasabi has made its partner program the centerpiece of its business model. Wasabi’s thriving ecosystem of over 10,000 partners and counting allows channels to sell “better-together” solutions with Wasabi cloud storage as an integral part of backup, ransomware mitigation, archiving, video surveillance storage solutions and more. Partners are also supported with specialized activation plans and activities, marketing campaigns-in-a-box, field events, and educational resources.

“Our partners are essential to our business, and we do everything we can to empower their success, from delivering an affordable, revenue-generating product they can trust, to supporting their go-to-market strategies and training,” said Laurie Mitchell, Vice President Partner and International Marketing, Wasabi Technologies. “Earning a 5-Star rating from CRN validates our commitment to our partners and our desire to help them capitalize on the massive opportunity of the cloud.”

“CRN’s Partner Program Guide delves into the strengths of each organization’s partner program in order to honor those that consistently support and promote good change within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “As innovation fuels the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers want partners that can keep up with and assist their growing business.”
