Stocks in this article: QLGC

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., March 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced it has been named to CRN 's 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating for the second consecutive year.

The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that deliver services and products to solution providers and the IT Channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

The vendor assessment methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each company's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education, marketing resources and programs, as well as overall sales support and communication.

To support an expanding solutions portfolio of breakthrough data center innovations, QLogic expanded its QLogic Signature Partner Program with the addition of an Advanced Solutions Partner tier. Authorized Advanced Solutions Partners gain the skills, training and tools to successfully deploy and support new high-margin data center connectivity technology sales plus exclusive access to top-level program benefits and resources.

"Our channel partners have played a key role in our Fibre Channel adapter leadership and our momentum in the 10Gb Ethernet space," said Rob Crawford, senior vice president of worldwide sales, QLogic. "This past year, we expanded our Signature Partner Program with more benefits and enhanced training. Additionally, we launched the QLogic Advanced Solutions Partner Program to create expanded revenue opportunities for our reseller partners with innovative new solutions such as our recently announced FabricCacheâ„¢ 10000 Series adapter."

All QLogic Signature Partners receive registration discounts, no-cost demo equipment, reward spiffs, product promotions and free training certifications. Resellers interested in qualifying for the QLogic Signature Partner Program should send inquiries to channelmarketing@qlogic.com.

"The companies listed in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."

The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
