By Brendon Foye on 6 May 2016
US vendor CenturyLink has named its first five reseller partners in Australia for its cloud services.
Reigning CRN MVP The Somerville Group is in the foundation group, which also includes Blue Central, CertaOne, Offis and Pro IT.
Avnet now distributes CenturyLink's global communications, hosting, cloud and IT services, based in NextDC’s Australian data centres. Resellers can sell these as white-labelled cloud products through Avnet’s cloud portal.
CenturyLink regional director Stuart Mills said partner resources would help resellers extend their customer relationships and increase revenue.
“Building partner relationships and developing a mature distribution channel in Australia is a key focus for CenturyLink and a win-win for CenturyLink and its partners,” said Mills.
“We look forward to collaborating with our new cloud reseller partners as they build recurring revenue streams and meet their customers’ IT needs by leveraging CenturyLink’s high-performance global cloud infrastructure, unique enterprise features, simple cloud management, and ongoing training and support.”
