Guide Highlights Leading Cloud Partner Programs

Wayne, Pa. – October 5, 2015 – Sungard Availability Services® (Sungard AS), a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, today announced it has been recognized in the The Channel Company's prominent CRN® 2015 Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers' cloud initiatives.

The CRN 2015 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide provides a valuable resource for solution providers to navigate the booming cloud marketplace by identifying technology suppliers that offer innovative cloud solutions and partner programs. To qualify for participation in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, technology vendors must have a unique set of partner program benefits for solution providers that deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.

"Each cloud provider and vendor in the Cloud Partner Program Guide was selected by CRN editors for putting forth substantive cloud partner programs that demonstrate a real buy-in and support of the channel community," says Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "With the pace of change and fierce competition in the growing cloud market, it's imperative that a solution provider finds vendor partners capable of giving them consistent, tangible support to grow their cloud-related revenue. The CRN 2015 Cloud Partner Program Guide helps them find those partners that are right for their business."

Sungard AS' Enterprise Cloud Solutions (ECS) portfolio includes three distinct service offerings – Private Cloud, Managed Cloud and Self-Managed Cloud. Sungard AS cloud solutions provide: agility, ensuring a predictable economic outcome and the ability to scale when needed; availability, offering high availability options that allow customers to deploy in a secure and controllable manner; and flexibility, supporting a full application lifecycle in one cloud deployment portfolio.

"More of our customers are taking a hybrid approach to their cloud environments, allowing them to take advantage of new cloud solutions while leveraging existing investments," said Carmen Sorice, Senior Vice President, Channels, Sungard AS. "We are fortunate to have a rich diversity of channel partners that deploy business applications through our cloud solutions to help our joint customers scale with growth opportunities, ensure application and data resilience and manage risk."

The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com. By combining the Cloud Partner Program Guide with The Channel Company's upcoming NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo, solution providers have access to the most relevant and up-to-date information available to accelerate their cloud strategies and solutions.
