Brocade upgrades partner program

Networking specialist Brocade has added new features to its global Alliance Partner Network program, along with changes to its Global Education offerings.

Changes to the partner program include the addition of the Virtualised Fabric Partner Specialisation, as well as the new Brocade Certified Ethernet Fabric Engineer Certification, to support partners in the delivery of Ethernet fabric technologies.

To receive the Virtualised Fabric Partner Specialisation, partners must be an Elite partner and satisfy a set of requirements, including having BCEFE-certified personnel on staff. Benefits include pre-sales support and access to proof-of-concept labs.

Partners who achieve the BCEFE certification will receive training and education on a broad set of Ethernet fabric-related topics. This certification is open to all Brocade partners and end-user customers.

“As part of our Brocade One strategy, we are continually enhancing the APN program with Quality in Partnership elements that provide partners with the necessary tools to help their customers make the transition towards highly virtualised, cloud-optimised network environments without the fear of vendor lock-in,” said Graham Schultz, regional director Australia and New Zealand at Brocade. “The addition of the new Virtualised Fabric Partner Specialisation and BCEFE Certification provides the educational background, practical know-how and technical validation that partners need to successfully deploy and manage Ethernet fabric-based solutions.”

Additionally, the company has added the Application Delivery Partner Specialisation for partners who have demonstrated proficiency associated with application load balancing and data traffic management technologies.

The Brocade APN program is divided into four partnership levels: Distributor, Elite, Premier and Select.
