Rancher Labs Announces Platinum Partner Program
August 26, 2019

Rancher Labs announced their Platinum Partner Program and recognized the five charter members of the program – BoxBoat Technologies, CloudOps, Redapt, Root Level Technology, and RoundTower. Coming on the heels of record growth in the first half of 2019, the Platinum Program is an important next step in expanding Rancher’s enterprise go-to-market scale in the face of broad adoption of their solutions.

The Rancher Platinum Partner Program comes during a time of rapid change for enterprises increasingly standardizing on container technologies like Kubernetes in order to modernize traditional applications for multi-cloud environments and build new cloud-native, microservices-based applications. An enormous opportunity exists for partners that can help enterprises address the challenge of deploying and managing Kubernetes across their entire multi-cloud infrastructure, from data center to edge.

“The market opportunity for container management software is enormous,” said Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO, Rancher Labs. “The Platinum Partner Program helps us expand our enterprise reach while creating new opportunities for our partners to help customers successfully run Kubernetes everywhere.”

With the introduction of the Platinum Program, Rancher now has 4 types of go-to-market partners – Consulting, Reseller, MSP, and Platinum. The charter Platinum partners all have a deep bench of Kubernetes expertise and have completed multiple Rancher enterprise customer consulting engagements over the past 12 months.

Requirements and benefits of the program include:

- Rancher Training & Certification – Platinum partners must have a minimum of two certified technical champions who have completed a rigorous Rancher certification program.

- Co-Hosted Training – partners must co-host 5 hands-on Rancher Rodeo training classes each calendar year.

- Co-Marketing Opportunities – the program provides Platinum partners access to lead and opportunity sharing programs, joint marketing funds, and options for co-branded content.
