As the cloud market continues its rapid growth and change, organizations often struggle to understand how they can leverage the cloud to drive efficiencies and boost revenues.
While Rackspace can reach a portion of those, we rely heavily on our partners to bring our integrated multi-cloud Fanatical Support to a much larger audience. You are the trusted advisors to your clients, and we know you’re being asked to help guide cloud strategy.
That’s why we want to help you communicate to those clients how they can define and implement clear cloud strategies across the leading cloud platforms. Whether your customers are using VMware, Microsoft, AWS, Openstack or a combination of solutions, our experts are here to help.
The Channel Partners Conference, Sept 25-28 in Austin, offers us a chance to hear from you and share our cloud expertise in ways that help you help your clients. For those attending, we encourage you schedule a meeting with our team. Email us for an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also encourage you to stop by the Rackspace kiosk in the Cloud Computing Lab, on the main show floor, booth 1431, to talk with our team of expert. There has never been a better time to partner with Rackspace. Ask us about some exciting new incentives that will be in place through the end of this year.
Here’s where Rackspace experts will be speaking:
Sept. 25, Level 4, Ballroom F, noon
Rackspace Senior Cloud Engineer Gerry Le Canu will be onstage with a host of experts as part of the opening keynote panel, “New Stack City.” You’ll hear from top cloud solutions partners discuss how and why they chose the platforms on which they run their private and hybrid cloud infrastructures. Le Canu will offer an update on the status of Azure Stack and how it will compare with OpenStack and VMware, explore hybrid cloud versus multi-cloud and touch on new hardware options.
Sept. 26, Level 4, Meeting Room 12B, 10:30 a.m.
Senior Solution Architect Kevin Wise on “The Customer Cloud Journey: Map Fast, Make an Impact.” Your customers’ cloud strategies are evolving almost as fast as the supporting technology. As a trusted adviser, you need to be a step ahead — or risk being left behind. Join Wise to learn how to extend your influence, position your firm as a thought leader and bring ongoing value to your customers.
“Rackspace is a service company at heart,” said our new North American Channel Sales & Alliances Vice President Lisa Mclin, in a recent blog post introducing her to partners. “I view channel sales as a means to continue spreading that great service and Fanatical Support across a wide array of technology platforms.”
Lisa also recently wrote about our first partner incentive program, and the new tools we’ll be rolling out to help partners succeed.
