Partner Program Directory: Archiving Vendors

Storage value-added resellers (VARs) who sell and support archiving products have a range of
issues to consider in the product selection process, most importantly their customers'
retention needs. Compliance requirements are driving decisions around archiving media, data
migration practices and attributes such as rewrite ability and indexing/search. With that level
of complexity on the customer side of the equation, our Partner Program Directory on
archiving vendors is designed to answer some of the questions VARs have about archiving
vendor partner programs, with details on marketing and communications, tech resources, lead
generation, training and certification.
