This is just the beginning, and we’re committed to driving mutual success for our Federal partners and Cyxtera.”
Partners included in Cyxtera’s Global Federal Partner Program receive unique benefits and have specific requirements based on three different tiers – Platinum, Gold, and Silver. Partners are rewarded based on the level of investment made to drive opportunities for Cyxtera and delivering mutual revenue growth. Cyxtera will provide access to partner enablement and support tools such as deal registration, training, and ongoing marketing support to accelerate success for all Federal reseller partners.
“Enabling our government customers to achieve greater efficiencies while deploying their IT infrastructure in secure and reliable colocation facilities to support their mission-critical applications is critically important in today’s market,” said Robert Quick, Federal Civilian Account Manager, Sirius Federal. “Partnering with Cyxtera enables us to deliver innovative solutions that meet the Federal government’s rigorous requirements and help them manage their budgets effectively.
