There is also a Pure funded incentive headcount for Platinum level partners that are dedicated to driving the adoption of Pure Storage all flash arrays globally.
The program includes enhancements to the company's automated, global, transparent deal registration system to ensure that partners collaborating with Pure receive world class sales support and complete backing from the Pure Storage sales organisation.
Earlier this year, Pure made new personnel and programmatic announcements including the hiring of Sotnick as the company's new global channel chief and the debut of the company's new partner-centric customer success program.
Additionally, the company revealed plans to implement a two tier pan-regional distribution model in international markets to broaden access to new markets for Pure and partners through the channel, at scale. Distribution Central managing director, Nick Verykios, said his company's partnership with Pure Storage had enabled it to deliver an advanced flash solution to our partners.
"No question: it's very exciting to sell new technology with such a strong economic value proposition," he said. ACS vice-president of sales and operations, Kevin Prahm, said the enhancements to the P3 partner program would help the company deliver better technical support and service to customers who were implementing flash to transform their businesses.
"ACS' priority is making sure our customers have access to the most innovative technology and get the best results from their investment; Pure makes this easy for us. The P3 program demonstrates that Pure Storage values our partnership, and ensures they will be a long-term partner."
