CloudHealth by VMware Awarded Five-Star Rating in CRN 2019 Partner Program Guide

Annual Guide Recognizes the IT Channel’s Top Partner Programs


BOSTON MA April 1, 2019 – CloudHealth by VMware announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given CloudHealth a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.


To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.


The CloudHealth Partner Program is coming off a record year, in which the number of partners grew by 53 percent YoY and revenue generated through partner relationships increased by more than 100 percent. CloudHealth recently evolved its partner program to include a new tiered structure to ensure partners receive personalized support based on their current priorities and maturation in delivering cloud managed services. Fueled by the acquisition by VMware in October, CloudHealth is poised for another record year as partners continue to leverage the platform as the cornerstone of their cloud managed services offerings. 


“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”


“CRN is the go-to resource for channel companies, and it is an honor to receive a 5-Star rating which recognizes our ongoing investments in our partner community and program,” said Bob Kilbride, Senior Director of CloudHealth Global Channel Sales. “Our goal is to allow partners to enable digital transformation worldwide, as they manage the many complexities of the public cloud. We are thrilled to be recognized by CRN as we continue to drive program growth and partner value.” 


The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at
