Server Technology Introduces New and Improved Channel Partner Program
Server Technology (News - Alert) today introduced the Server Technology Power Rewards Program, designed particularly for the company's channel partners that target data center customers. This program, according to the company's director of Global Channel Sales, Mike Johnston (News - Alert), is part of an effort by Server Technology to makes it channel partner program more channel focused.
“We’re investing in the current and future success of our channel partners to expand our global footprint — to provide data centers around the world with the highest quality power distribution units (PDUs) and power management solutions,” added Johnston.
Server Technology decided to commit to this undertaking after asking its channel partners what they would like to see as part of enhancements to the partner program. As such, the new Server Technology Power Rewards Program features a slew of benefits to partners, including a new partner portal, a one-stop resource center and personalized dashboards for opportunity registrations.
"In addition, we now offer dedicated channel managers, expanded marketing development funds, discounted demonstration product kits, and expanded training opportunities,” said Johnston.
Server Technology is a company that prides itself in its expertise in producing the highest quality rack mount power distribution units and power monitoring solutions that help manage power capacity, reduce downtime and improve energy efficiency.
Earlier in November, the company began licensing a number of its patents related to intelligent power distribution units to Leviton Manufacturing, a provider of connectivity and power infrastructure solutions for advanced data centers and applications. A power distribution unit is a multiple-outlet power strip which delivers conditioned power to essential networking, server or telecom equipment.
Also this month, Server Technology attended the 11th Annual Datacenter Dynamics Converged London Conference. This global, peer-led data center conference and expo took place on November 14-15, bringing together over 2,000 delegates, 100 speakers, 70 technical presentations and 90 exhibitors.
Looking to grow your channel opportunities? Then be sure to attend Channel Vision Expo (CVx), collocated with ITEXPO Miami 2013, Jan 29- Feb. 1 in Miami, Florida. Stay in touch with everything happening at Channel Vision Expo. Follow us on Twitter.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
