Cyxtera launches partner program built on its 57 global data centres

Launch partners include Avant, Westven and SageNet.

Infrastructure services provider Cyxtera, formed after BC Partners and Medina Capital’s acquisition of CenturyLink’s data centre business for $2.6bn, has launched a global channel partner program built on the company’s 57 data centres.

The Cyxtera’s Partner Network has been developed to help members operate and secure their applications and infrastructure with a suite of cybersecurity solutions.

Tina Gravel, senior vice president of global channels for Cyxtera, said: “We are excited to welcome Avant, Westven and SageNet join Cyxtera as launch members of the Cyxtera Partner Network.

“These companies bring a considerable set of capabilities to amplify the value of our data centers and cybersecurity solutions.”

Barry Field, chief revenue officer for Cyxtera, said: “Our portfolio was built for today’s enterprise IT and built for the channel, and the launch of our partner program is a significant milestone in our go-to-market strategy.

“We’re building a best-in-class program and partner community to better serve our customers and reach new markets.”
