AVANT and Rackspace Combine Forces to Extend Global Channel Reach

AVANT Communications is delighted to announce an extension of their existing partnership with Rackspace.

AVANT will serve as a Master Agent for Rackspace across the EMEA region, giving AVANT’s ecosystem of Trusted Advisors, or channel partners, across the world the opportunity to better support customers’ needs by offering the Rackspace unique combination of managed cloud services and award-winning Fanatical Support®.

Their absolute focus on best-in-class technology and exceptional customer support make Rackspace the ideal partner to enhance the AVANT channel sales enablement program.

Rackspace provides world-class solutions based on AWS, Google, Azure, and other leading platforms, and has an unrivaled portfolio across infrastructure, data, applications and security.

Working more closely with Rackspace will enable AVANT’s network of Trusted Advisors to capitalize on an unbeatable selection of solutions and a wide range of services for end customers.

Being in a position to offer managed services across the world’s leading technologies offers more scope for AVANT partners to solve complex customer IT challenges.

“This is a huge win for our growing community of Trusted Advisors,” said Ian Kieninger, CEO and co-founder of AVANT. “Extending our relationship with Rackspace will provide our channel partners in the EMEA region with access to the industry’s leading cloud services across AWS, Google, Azure, among other top platforms. This is going to be a major game changer in helping enterprises worldwide accelerate their journey to the cloud.”

John Coulston, Director of Channel and Alliances said, “we are delighted to be extending our partnership with AVANT to the EMEA region following our successful partnership in the US. Our portfolio provides the agent community with a range of hosting, cloud, application and professional services which can help their customers to succeed in their IT transformation journeys. We look forward to working with AVANT and the agent community to grow this success and continue to serve their customers.”

We’ll be sharing more details with our Trusted Advisors about how our closer relationship will work in practice and show how better access to the highest levels of support and the cutting-edge technology that Rackspace brings to the table can enhance your AVANT portfolio.

We started this process at our recent London BootCamp where Ben Wittert, Partner Alliance Manager, represented Rackspace on the Data Center panel. Ben fielded questions and helped attendees discover more about Rackspace market-leading solutions.
