Sentinel Signs Premier Partner Agreement With Latisys

Sentinel to Resell Latisys' IT Infrastructure Solutions to Enterprises Nationally

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2013) - Sentinel Technologies, Inc., a leading technology solution provider, today announced it has signed a Premier Partner Agreement with Latisys, Inc., a national provider of hybrid Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions spanning managed cloud, hosting and data center colocation.

Under terms of the reseller agreement, and as a member of the Latisys Partner Pathways Program, a team of approximately 65 Sentinel sales execs will sell Latisys' IT infrastructure solutions delivered from Latisys' national platform of data centers.

More than 1,000 enterprises and government organizations rely on Latisys as a trusted provider of critical IT infrastructure solutions that underpin their business. Latisys' compliant national platform of seven high density data centers includes key facilities in Denver, Southern California, Chicago, and Ashburn, Va. Latisys Irvine serves as the west coast hub and is the largest data center in Orange County. Latisys Denver is an ideal disaster recovery site for the Bay area, while Latisys Chicago and Latisys Ashburn serve as gateways to Europe and Latin America. Latisys has been expanding -- recently adding over 75,000 sq. ft. of secure, ultra high-density raised floor to a nationwide platform that that now exceeds 343,000 square feet. 

Founded in 1982, Sentinel specializes in assessing, designing, deploying, and supporting customized solutions in three core areas; Communications Technologies, Private and Public Cloud, and Outsourced/Managed Services. This includes Sentinel's new cloud offering with Latisys providing critical data center facilities underpinning joint customer infrastructure solutions. In addition, Sentinel has a network operations center that remotely monitors clients' networks -- a value-added service for customers outsourcing their infrastructure to Sentinel via partners like Latisys.

Latisys' Partner Pathways program facilitates sales of its award-winning managed IT infrastructure services via channel partners who are able to make its services more readily accessible to the broader business market. Partner Pathways is designed to enable partners to target enterprise customers, create new revenue streams, and develop win-win business relationships.

"We will extend Latisys' sales exposure nationally and Latisys will enable us to expand our product offering particularly into the cloud."

"Sentinel is a leading VAR that leverages strategic relationships with industry leaders such as Cisco, Microsoft, and VMware," said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys. "This enables Sentinel to be a proactive partner in meeting customer business goals and maximizing IT investments.
