Peak Expands Its Lucrative Channel Partner Program

Accelerates Partners' Entry Into the Highly Profitable Cloud Marketplace

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2014) - Peak® (formerly PeakColo), an enterprise-class IaaS Cloud provider for channel partners, today at the VMware Partner Exchange event, launches an updated channel partner program structured to help partners rapidly enter the highly profitable cloud services market. Peak's three channel programs, Agent, Reseller, and White Label, are designed to allow channel partners to invest in a cloud practice, without the capital expenditure, in-house expertise, and in some cases, operational support that are required for delivering cloud services. The three tiers of partnership include:

  • Agent: No quotas and no investments required. Agents are compensated for referring qualified business opportunities to Peak resulting in sales.

  • Reseller: Peak will help with business development, sales support, and engineering solutions. The Reseller Program is ideal for businesses that want to sell cloud, but lack the managed services and operational resources to support cloud customers themselves.

  • White Label: By using Peak's secure cloud infrastructure, partners can develop their own profitable array of cloud-enabled products. Partners have full control of the sales cycle and can leverage Peak as an extension of their team with access to inside sales personnel, training, pre-sales assistance, and Tier 2 and 3 operational support. Peak's white label partners achieve total pricing autonomy through a cost-plus pricing model.

As the industry's only 100% channel-centric cloud provider, Peak sells exclusively via its partner program, ensuring zero competition within client deals. As an expert in IaaS cloud infrastructure, Peak's comprehensive solutions are proven and respected in the marketplace. Its unique patented Layer 2 network topology allows fast, seamless and secure migrations from a data center, customer premise or from any cloud into the Peak cloud infrastructure -- giving Peak partners a competitive advantage and rapid cloud deployment.

"We know the cloud and we understand what makes channel partners succeed," comments Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of Peak. "As one of the first companies to fully embrace the cloud and offer enterprise-class cloud services, Peak has the expertise, tools and resources to meet the needs of resellers, agents and distributors alike. Our unique 100% channel centric model means we don't compete with our partners, we only make money when our partners make money. We are excited to expand our partner program and help more partners successfully harness all that the cloud has to offer."
