Convirture is launching a partner program, featuring virtualization management software for OEMs, distributors and channel play for solution providers and resellers. Here's the scoop on the company's plans.

For the uninitiated, we covered Convirture back in July, detailing their software that manages XEN and KVM-virtualization solutions. Initially, Convirture was directly offering ConVirt software to service providers with some pricing options, but now the full blown partner program is here.

Convirture's ConVirt boasts "a level of functionality that was previous available only to users of proprietary virtualization platforms," the company claims. The channel partner program goes hand in hand with the idea to expand this availability. Convirture hopes their pull of vendor-agnostic platform management will put many partners at ease with building virtual and private clouds.

The partner program features three tiers:

  • 1st tier - OEM and Distributor
  • 2nd tier - Solution Provider Partner Gold
  • 3rd tier - Authorized Reseller Partner
Convirture is, of course, offering partners tech and sales support, product training and evaluation of their software, complete with "competitive rates and terms. Check them out here.
