“The Excelerate Partner Program has been designed from the ground up to give our partners everything they need to quickly drive new revenue opportunities and capitalize on the explosive demand for secure file sync and share solutions,” said Russ Johnson, COO,
Connected Data. “With a 20 percent plus protected margin for Gold-level partners, we’ve designed a program where partners can quickly benefit from a recurring revenue stream while giving them the opportunity to broaden their footprint into existing customers and easily land new ones, with a ‘sticky’ solution that is seamless to manage and support.”
The market for file sync and share (FSS) solutions has exponential growth opportunity.
International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that the FSS market will grow at a 23.1% fiveyear compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2018 to $2.3 billion. The healthy growth rate through 2018 will continue to be driven by the shift to cloud, mobile use of FSS, and the ability to share and collaborate with others effectively.
Connected Data’s Transporter solution is uniquely positioned to serve this growing market with its Transporter family of private cloud appliances. Free from the risk and cost of cloudbased solutions, Transporter appliances keep data safe and secure within the company’s own firewall while eliminating the expense of cloud subscription fees. The resulting solution is
more secure, private and higher performing than cloud-based file sharing services while offering enterprise-class redundancy and seamless failover for optimal reliability.
Focused on growing its global footprint and rapid expansion for its leading Transporter private cloud file sync and share technology, Connected Data is delivering a disruptive pricing model.
The company offers flexible payment terms for channel partners and customers and, unlike cloud-based solutions, there are never any per-user fees.
