(Cincinnati, OH) April 17th, 2017 – RoundTower Technologies, LLC announced that they have been designated a Platinum Partner by their long-time technology partner, Turbonomic, Inc. Platinum Partners are authorized to sell and deliver Turbonomic Professional Services and there are presently only 40 Platinum Partners worldwide. RoundTower and Turbonomic recently invested in advanced certification training through Turbonomic’s Accreditation Program. This will position RoundTower to deliver on complex customer use cases such as public cloud migration and hybrid cloud design. In addition, the two companies collaborated to release the first Turbonomic Reference Architecture for VMware vSphere. Since then, RoundTower has seen strong growth as a go-to Turbonomic Technology Partner.
The Turbonomic 360° Partner Program began in 2016 to accelerate channel partners by providing a new Partner Portal, partner accreditation program, access to Turbonomic sales, technical and marketing resources, and new incentives to ensure partner success. More importantly, it enables partners such as RoundTower to pass on additional savings to their customers and help them maximize the ROI of their virtualized and cloud environments, while ensuring that they are well-positioned to achieve the agility that cloud computing offers.
“The real value of Turbonomic is the fact that it integrates with a wide variety of endpoints regardless of cloud provider, infrastructure, or architecture,” says René van den Bedem, RoundTower Cloud Automation & DevOps Practice Manager. “Our decision to invest substantially in Turbonomic is consistent with our strategy to be a vendor-agnostic, strategic partner to our customers. We base our practice purely on their business needs and we are committed to staying on the leading edge of technical knowledge with continuing training and certifications. We are particularly excited to make the Reference Architecture available, not only for our customers, but for the Turbonomic partner community as a whole.”
“RoundTower has been an exemplary Turbonomic partner for over three years and we’re incredibly pleased to support its success through the 360° Partner Program” - Sean Finnegan, VP of Channel Sales at Turbonomic
Last month, RoundTower hosted Turbonomic for a weeklong advanced training and certification course. In attendance were 25 team members from the RoundTower Cloud Automation Practice and two customers. This advanced certification enables RoundTower to fully demonstrate the Turbonomic platform to its customers and to integrate it even in the most challenging environments. Moreover, it is critical to validating that Turbonomic solutions delivered to the market align with and address real customer problems, regardless of complexity.
“RoundTower has been an exemplary Turbonomic partner for over three years and we’re incredibly pleased to support its success through the 360° Partner Program,” said Sean Finnegan, VP of Channel Sales at Turbonomic. “Growing our ecosystem with advanced partners like RoundTower is extremely important for our go-to-market strategy, particularly to meet the demands for complex Turbonomic use cases.”
