Lightbits Luminary Partner Program Unveiled

The program empowers partners to grow their business with a modern cloud storage solution.

SAN JOSE, Calif., September 12, 2023 – Lightbits®, the innovation leader in simple, flexible, and cost-efficient data platform solutions for any cloud, today announced that it has relaunched its global channel program as the Lightbits Luminary Partner Program. The launch reinforces the company’s commitment to being a channel-first organization empowering partners to solve customers’ biggest cloud storage challenges.

The unique value of the Lightbits Luminary Program is a robust partner ecosystem that delivers validated and trusted cloud solutions that meet the performance demands of storage-intensive workloads—analytical and transactional databases, AI/ML, and Gen AI—ultimately solving customers’ cloud-first strategies across industries.

“Rapid acceleration of cloud-first initiatives has given rise to the need for high-performance software-defined block storage that is cost-efficient and easy to provision and manage. Lightbits has been most successful in areas where storage-intensive workloads require performance and efficiency beyond the limits of legacy, traditional, or cloud-native solutions—opening new lines of revenue for partners,” said Charla Bunton-Johnson, Vice President of Global Alliances and Channel at Lightbits. “We have built key alliances and relationships with public cloud, GSI, OEM, cloud migration, and reseller channel partners to offer a differentiator in cloud storage practices, solutions, and service offerings. Lightbits Luminary is an exclusive and specialized partner program to assure quality, focus, and profitability for each of our partners.”

The Lightbits Luminary Partner Program is a comprehensive program that delivers the resources partners need to be successful. With three program levels – Genius, Expert, and Leader (Referral) – Lightbits Luminary creates an environment for partners to further grow their cloud practice and competency.
