Canadian data center real estate company Data Centers Canada announced on Wednesday that it has launched a channel partner program, aimed at IT resellers and other technology service providers, as well as real estate professionals.
A smaller-scale regional operator, Data Centers Canada operates two data centers in the Toronto area. Just over a year ago, Data Centers Canada expanded its Toronto North facility to a total of 20,000 square feet.
Data Centers Canada says its partner program has been an important part of its growth up to this point. The revamped program will provide access to the company’s entire set of colocation and disaster recovery services, and operates on a modified agent model that, according to the announcement, will “easily facilitate transactions.”
On the Data Centers Canada website, the company says its partner program provides the services as a white labeled service that allows the partner to have control over their customers’ experience, including all the billing and support interactions.
“Our Partner Program initiatives have been key drivers in our continued growth in the Canadian data center and colocation marketplace,” says Tony Di Benedetto, managing partner at Data Centers Canada, quoted in the press release. “We continue to develop these programs to maximize benefits to our partners.”
Along with the services themselves, says Data Centers Canada, the program will provide partners with access to the company’s sales associates for a “collaborative selling approach.”
The website also describes a simpler referral program which provides partners with a commission for simply referring colocation or disaster recovery business.
