CRN annually compiles the Who’s Who of channel management and we are proud to say that fellow Symformer, Bob DeSantis, made the grade. CRN’s Channel Chiefs list showcases and recognizes the leaders of partner programs “dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director of CRN.
Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community. –Kelley Damore, senior vice president, editorial director, CRN
DeSantis and his team bring Symform’s distributed cloud storage network to the channel. Symform’s unique ‘Bytes or Bucks’ pricing allows channel partners to pay for Symform storage and support with their excess local drive space. Most of our channel partners are paying for Symform cloud storage with inexpensive local storage. This low cost cloud storage gives Symform channel resellers great pricing power. With the resulting decrease in cloud storage costs, the channel can increase the amount of data they and their clients can affordably store in the cloud.
Congratulations again to Bob DeSantis on being named a 2013 Channel Chief! Check out his advice to someone getting into the channel today.
