Public Cloud Partner Program for VARs

We’ve designed the public cloud program for Value Added Resellers (VARs) to expand their cloud portfolio and market reach. The program is well suited for channel partners that want to address their customer needs with public cloud services and get paid a referral fee for it.  It also enables VARs to offer their customers a hybrid delivery model across private, managed and public cloud environments. 

Channel partners receive an annuity based incentive when they refer business to the HP Cloud.  As a partner that refers business to the HP Cloud, you don’t have to build out your own billing capability to support the public cloud recurring usage model.  The HP Cloud takes care of billing the customer.  Also, channel partners can leverage marketing, sales and technical tools and resources.  We offer you two options to partner with us. A Silver track is geared toward partners that want to self-serve.  A Gold track is designed for partners that want more engagement from the HP Cloud.
