Internap Partner News
Welcome to the March edition of our monthly Internap Partner Newsletter “Channeling Success”!
Hello Performance Partners!
Wow, the Channel Partners Conference in Las Vegas earlier this month was huge! I have been in the Channel for fifteen years and this is the biggest show yet. Strong interest in Internap’s cloud, hosting, colocation and connectivity portfolio enabled us to meet with record number of Performance Partners over the course of the conference.
If you missed your meeting or didn’t have an opportunity to schedule one prior to the show—it’s not too late! Just reach out to your Channel Sales Director (Mike Kowalski, Colm Armstrong, or Therese McGovern) and they’ll fill you in our most recent news and the plans we revealed during the event.

Despite the hectic conference pace, we were able to find the time to roll out Training & Certification program to another key partner in March. This time we met with Advocate Insiders. John Steele and his team were highly engaged and we think everyone really enjoyed an impactful event. Here’s what John had to say:
” [Our] audience was very diverse; we had technical and nontechnical as well as junior and senior personnel in attendance. Normally this wide gap in experience level would present an obstacle for the trainer but not with Internap. They were able to present the material in such a manner as to be interesting to the entirety of the audience. Thank you for a great afternoon and we look forward to what 2015 brings!”
John and his team will be following up their training with a tour our Atlanta datacenter in the coming weeks. By the way, have you toured our facilities recently? Did you know more than 40% of usable space in Internap-owned data centers has been built in the last five years? Take your own tour of one of our state of the art facilities and use them to close business!
