It’s been a banner year for our partner program, and we can’t help but recognize some of our fantastic service providers. Our Partner of the Year winners were picked based on three criteria: technical capability, business performance, and growth opportunity. We have an outstanding partner community so the competition was high, but our winners represent the best of what partners have to offer. Their ability to leverage the CloudHealth platform to provide insights, optimize resources, and help their customers govern their multicloud environments made these partners stand out this year.

Not only has it been a great year for our partners and their customers, but overall an impressive year for the partner program as a whole.
