BlueArc's Partner Acceleration Program Recognized by Everything Channel With Five-Star Certification

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2009) - BlueArc® Corporation, a leader in scalable, high-performance unified network storage, today announced that its Partner Acceleration Program has received a Five-Star Certification in Everything Channel's 2009 Partner Program Guide and was recognized as one of the top IT vendors in North America. The recognition comes following a dramatic expansion of BlueArc's value added reseller roster through 2008, and continued growth through the first quarter of 2009, as the company partners with the channel to enter new geographies and markets.

BlueArc's Partner Acceleration Program includes:

--  Comprehensive training to help partners target customers
--  Technical education and access to solutions experts
--  Sales performance incentives for authorized channel partners
--  An interactive sales guide with detailed product and competitive
    positioning
--  Automated deal registration and access to technical data with a
    dedicated BlueArc partner portal
    

The BlueArc Partner Acceleration Program now includes well over 100 partners, and saw channel revenue growth of more than 40% when compared to the prior fiscal year. The program was also named a 2009 Best Channel Vendor by Business Solutions magazine, and BlueArc's senior director of worldwide channels and partner marketing, Cameron van Orman, was also recently named a 2009 CRN Channel Chief by Everything Channel.

"Now more than ever, the quality of a vendor's partner program determines how profitable its partners will be," said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel.

"The Five-Star certification by Everything Channel validates BlueArc's commitment and investment in its channel program, partners and their customers," said van Orman. "BlueArc's channel strategy is to work closely with high-growth, technical partners and provide them tools, training, and resources, so they are more effective in winning deals in a highly competitive market, with BlueArc's differentiated offerings and can achieve healthy margins on high-quality work."
