An Introduction to Connectria Partnership_ Partnership Opportunities with the Leading Managed Host

There’s multiple reasons why some of the most recognizable names in the industry have partnered with Connectria and made us one of the leading managed hosting providers. However, two of the biggest factors are that we don’t take our partnerships lightly and we believe that each and every alliance must yield mutual benefits.

As a profitable, privately-owned company, Connectria answers only to our customers and partners. This allows us a unique level of flexibility and responsiveness to solve our customers’ challenges, and win new business.

With flexible partner programs available, Connectria opens the door for organizations across a wide range of industries to be able to partner with a leader.   No matter what your company’s needs and goals are, we’ve got the partnership plan that’s perfect for you.

The Referral Partner Program With Connectria

With the Connectria Referral Partner plan, you can earn Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) while providing your clients with exceptional hosting on the broadest range of technologies. As a referral partner, the breadth of technologies that Connectria hosts will open up a wide range of opportunities for you.

This is especially true in many of the following specialty markets:

  • IBM i Cloud Hosting & IBM i Server Hosting
  • IBM AIX Cloud Hosting & IBM AIX Server Hosting
  • IBM i Remote Administration & Monitoring
  • HIPAA Compliant Hosting
  • Managed Amazon Web Services
  • Software as a Service (SaaS) Hosting
  • High-Availability Cloud Hosting
  • Citrix XenApp & XenDesktop Hosting
  • Managed Microsoft Azure Services
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Hosting
  • Mixed Vendor / Technology Hosting

Becoming a Connectria Referral Partner may be ideal for you if your company is involved in any of the following:

  • Web Hosting
  • Web Development
  • IT Consulting
  • Value-Added Reseller (VAR)
  • Systems Integration
  • Marketing & Branding
  • Independent Software Vendor (ISV)
  • Data Center / Co-Location Provider
  • Accounting or Financial Services

The promise of high referral fees doesn’t mean much if your prospects don’t close, or if your hosting partner can’t support your clients’ needs. Partnering with Connectria means that you are aligning with an industry leader that has proven itself over and over again, expertly working with you to close new business  and providing top-level support across the board.

The Connectria Reseller Partner Program

Cloud Hosting and the Managed Hosting market as a whole have undergone exponential growth and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. In fact, according to Forrester Research, by 2020 the global cloud computing market alone is expected to top $240 billion.

In order to ensure that all of our reseller partners have the requisite knowledge, sales and support capabilities, we provide the requisite training and on-boarding for all Connectria Resellers. Our commitments to excellence and top-level service along with our unique level of flexibility and responsiveness to solve our customers’ challenges is what has led to Connectria being repeatedly named as one of Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies.

Organizations that serve the IT market must confront the movement toward Managed Hosting and decide how to address this trend. Some companies view adding Managed Hosting Services to their current offering as a means to remain competitive. Others view it as an opportunity to drive new business while others still see a partnership with a true managed host as the way to expand their capabilities. For most, building and maintaining your own data center with corresponding Managed Services is a complex, expensive and unrealistic venture.

For companies looking to augment their existing products and services with Managed Hosting services, Connectria provides a Reseller Program. Whether you’re an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) looking to complement your delivery model with a hosted alternative, a hardware reseller in search of new revenue opportunities or a service provider hoping to enter the Cloud market, Connectria’s Reseller Program may be right for you.

Again, this is especially true in many specialty markets. Such as:

  • IBM i Cloud Hosting & IBM i Server Hosting
  • IBM AIX Cloud Hosting & IBM AIX Server Hosting
  • IBM i Remote Administration & Monitoring.Citrix XenApp & XenDesktop Hosting
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Hosting
  • Software as a Service (SaaS) Hosting
  • High-Availability Cloud Hosting
  • Mixed Vendor / Technology Hosting

Partnering with Connectria through our Reseller Program means that your partnered with a company that’s been around almost as long as hosting itself, with a trusted name that you can count on.
