Boston, MA (February 4, 2016) – Sungard® Availability Services™ (Sungard AS), a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, recognized seven of its key channel partners for their performance and dedication during 2015 with its annual Partner Performance awards. Winners were selected from Canada and the U.S.
The Sungard AS Partner of the Year awards distinguish overall partnership engagement and sales performance, while the Breakout Partner of the Year awards acknowledge excellence in execution working with Sungard AS. This year, Actifio was named Breakout Technology Partner of the Year for providing extraordinary support across multiple significant deals.
“Together with our channel partners, Sungard AS achieved great success in providing critical application management, production cloud and disaster recovery services to customers during 2015,” said Carmen Sorice, Senior Vice President, Global Channel Sales and Programs, Sungard AS. “Taking a moment to recognize their efforts demonstrates our commitment to being the partner of choice to our stakeholders. We deliver outstanding service and performance driven by our partner program to create the best customer experience in the industry.”
Actifio provides copy data virtualization solutions for the enterprise. As a strategic technology provider to Sungard AS, it allows customers to cost effectively modernize their data protection and disaster recovery strategies. Among the biggest achievements of its partnership with Sungard AS last year was the joint launch of Recover2Cloud for AWS (Amazon Web Services) at the AWS re:Invent 2015 conference in October.
“Sungard AS’ reputation for delivering high availability recovery services is unmatched, and our partnership with them is integral as it allows us to deepen our joint offerings to customers,” Ash Ashutosh, CEO of Actifio. “We are therefore delighted and honored that our work together in 2015 has been recognized as exemplary, and this will only drive us to deliver an even better experience for our customers in 2016.”
