Eaton has got chummy with EMC, with the diversified industrial manufacturer announcing it has joined the EMC Technology Partner Program.
It says it hopes to use the developmental resources provided in the program to design integrated power management services that help IT and data centre companies to enhance uptime and business continuity.
Primarily the company wants to develop the integrated capabilities of its Intelligent Power Manager software, which it says has VMware Ready and Citrix Ready certifications and lets users manage their power infrastructure remotely and directly through the VMware vSphere or Citrix XenCenter platforms.
It said that its customers could now build on EMC’s integrated capabilities with VMware vCenter by using Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software to automate disaster recovery and business continuity processes directly from the VMware platform.
The announcement was accompanied with the standard quote from EMC, which said it was “pleased” that Eaton had joined its partner program.
Magor Communications is set to launch the first phase of its new Stratus Partner Programme at a conference later this week.
The visual collaboration company will use the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) conference, which kicks off Jan. 29 in Amsterdam as the mouthpiece for the new initiative, which is claimed to help resellers offer their customers “alternatives to traditional video conferencing.”
The Stratus service is said to work differently from other products as it uses software architecture to apparently allow users to engage and interact on any device.
As it runs through the cloud, the company says there are more opportunities for partners who will be able to leverage the cost reduction of cloud deployment and support many creative use cases for video to their customers.
At ISE the company will be on the search for new partners who are looking at new revenue opportunities. In return the company claims it will give those who join up access to a variety of options for billing, endpoint monetisation, vertical product development and “other benefits.”
ChannelEye will be attending the event and giving you the low down later in the week.
