SUSE Opens Up Enterprise Linux to Channels

SUSE, an open-source enterprise platform provider, is introducing a new SUSE channel partner program. Partners that resell open source enterprise technology from SUSE will benefit from improved training and certification pathways along with enhanced profitability structures that recognize and reward partners’ engagement, the vendor claimed.

The program focuses on four SUSE solution areas for channel partners: enterprise Linux, software-defined storage, OpenStack cloud and systems management.

“Enterprise IT customers need to be able to adapt quickly to changes in their markets, and so do their technology providers,” said Ronald de Jong, president of sales at SUSE. “That’s why we’re making it easier for our reseller partners to find and use the tools that will help them provide the right SUSE solutions to their customers.”

SUSE’s channel partner program features a streamlined online portal for partners that provides access to the latest product information and sales tools, as well as training and certification that are available online, in the classroom or via SUSE’s academy system. SUSE also provides helpdesk assistance dedicated to channel partners.
