The CloudHealth partner community is essential to helping thousands of our joint customers optimize their cloud environments and drive business transformation in the cloud. To help recognize and inspire our partner community, each year we identify CloudHealth Partner of the Year Award winners.
This year, our Partner of the Year Awards were announced during the 2021 CloudLIVE Solution Provider Summit, a virtual cloud management partner event offering the opportunity for MSPs, GSIs, VARs, and channel leaders to learn, grow, and connect with the global channel community. We’ll provide more information about this event later on in the article, including other exciting partner updates, resources, and program highlights from the past year.
In addition to our regional categories, this year, we’ve expanded the awards to also recognize partners by specific cloud services and performance (e.g. Innovation, AWS Management, etc.). So without further ado, congratulations to the recent winners!
