Trilio Recognized with a 5-Star Rating in the 2020 CRN® Partner Program Guide

Annual Guide Recognizes the Top Partner Programs in IT

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., March 30, 2020—Trilio, a leader in cloud-native data protection, has received a 5-Star rating from CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2020 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of the most rewarding partner programs from technology companies that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an elite group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best in their partner programs. 

The Channel Company’s research team analyzed each vendor’s partner program to determine the 2020 5-Star ratings. Each was scored based on several factors, including investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. Based on that assessment, the Trilio Partner Program stands among the elite for technology suppliers in the IT channel, providing maximum value and support for solution providers. 

Trilio has partnered with some of the most prominent technology companies, managed service providers and solution providers in the IT industry to deliver data protection for scalable, next-generation hybrid cloud architectures. 

Recent expansions of the Trilio Partner Program include: 

  • Increased size of its global partner community by 100%, including new partners Ingram Micro Brasil, Logicalis, Matrix IT, SHI and Zones.
  • Signed distribution partners in Europe, Australia and South America.
  • Expanded relationship with Red Hat to include the Red Hat Container Certification.

The TrilioVault platform provides backup and recovery of an entire application—including its data and metadata—being run in containers managed by Kubernetes, OpenStack hybrid clouds or Red Hat virtualized environments. The TrilioVault architecture is agentless and offers infinite scalability, self-service management and an open, universal backup schema that makes it ideal for protecting cloud-native applications.

“With the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers need partners that can keep pace and support their growing business,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide features insight into the strengths and benefits of each company’s program to identify those that truly support and drive positive change within the IT channel.”

“CRN is a prominent resource in the IT industry,” said Thomas Lahive, VP of alliances and strategic account sales for Trilio. “As we’ve expanded our core technology to support both VM-based and container-based applications, the channel has become a critical part of our go-to-market initiatives. In 2019, we doubled our partner community to expand our reach internationally. Trilio also continued investing in our strategic partnership with Red Hat and IBM through numerous customer engagements and technology certifications for our new product that supports backup and recovery of Kubernetes and OpenShift-based applications.”

CRN also named TrilioVault one of the “10 Hottest Kubernetes Tools and Technologies” of the year. The 2020 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at:
