Dot Hill Awarded 5-Star Partner Rating In CRN Partner Program Guide For Fourth Consecutive Year

LONGMONT, Colo., March 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, today announced it has been named to UBM Tech Channel's CRN 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating for the fourth consecutive year.

The CRN Partner Program Guide lists manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel. CRN remains the market leader in Channel news, delivering intelligence, actionable advice and forward-thinking business strategy to the North American IT channel.

The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect 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 list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.

"Our channel partners have been vital to the continued success of the AssuredSAN™ brand, which has become synonymous with reliable, quality storage solutions," said Brad Painter, vice president of channel sales, Dot Hill. "With the ability to market complete, integrated solutions, Dot Hill Connections partners continue to work with us on new ways to expand our vertical markets. Qualified Dot Hill resellers are a key component in our strategy to establish a presence this year in the midrange market with our unique, new AssuredSAN Pro 5000 real-time storage tiering solutions."

This past year, the company revamped the Dot Hill Connections channel program, expanding resources for channel marketing and lead generation to better support Dot Hill's growing reseller base. Dot Hill successfully expanded the company's roster of channel partners with new resellers experienced in key areas such as storage virtualization and the media & entertainment industry. This recruitment effort complemented Dot Hill's expanded product offerings including the new "seriously smart" AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series real-time tiered storage solutions for midrange customers and the "wicked-fast" next-generation AssuredSAN 4000 Series.

In August 2012, Dot Hill rolled out the AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series through fully trained and authorized Dot Hill Connections channel partners who offer organizations complete, turnkey solutions. The move was designed to broaden the reach of Dot Hill and its channel partners into the fast-growing midrange storage market, while advancing the momentum of the AssuredSAN brand in key vertical markets. Dot Hill has been working closely with channel partners to reach midsized businesses who require storage with world-class reliability and demonstrated 99.999 percent availability for applications such as server virtualization, database applications, and Microsoft Exchange.
