DxAdvantage Membership Enables Partners to Free Their Clients from Windows Datacenter Complexity with Award-Winning Container Management Software for Microsoft SQL Server


Fort Collins | October 25, 2016

DH2i™ Company, a provider of Microsoft Windows Server application portability and management solutions, today announced its DxAdvantage Partner Program, live from the PASS Summit 2016, Booth #407. The new channel partner program is an opportunity for value-added resellers (VARs), system integrators (SIs), consultants and OEMs to differentiate their Microsoft SQL Server offerings with DxEnterprise container management software. The program highlights DH2i’s commitment to the channel as well as its investment in enablement resources and advanced technical training to solidify its partners as trusted IT advisors.

According to Gartner’s recently published Forecast: Enterprise Software Markets, Worldwide, 2013-2020, 3Q16 Update (September 23, 2016)*, “The enterprise infrastructure software market is forecast to reach $221 billion in total spending by 2020, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3%”

With increasing Windows datacenter complexity, OS sprawl and suffocating licensing costs, the demand for a better way to manage SQL Server on-premises and in the cloud has exploded. DH2i’s DxAdvantage program provides a unique opportunity for partners to insert themselves into this massive market opportunity and provide unparalleled customer outcomes. The initial implementation of DxEnterprise also opens the door to a recurring revenue stream for partners as well as access to previously inaccessible wallet share.

“Some enterprises have difficulty staffing or managing expansive Windows environments, and database licensing costs are always a concern,” said Steve Dowling, Vice President of Infrastructure Strategy at Sirius Computer Solutions. “DH2i’s DxEnterprise container management software is a great simplification and economy tool for SQL environments, and it creates greater speed and agility as well. In the end, customer environments become faster and more efficient.” He added, “DH2i is proving to be an excellent new channel partner for Sirius. With their technology innovation and highly responsive support services, they are dedicated to ensuring our mutual success.”

“We were facing the challenge of wanting to refresh our SQL Server-based Sungard Public Safety system but we couldn’t find a solution to manage SQL Server that took full advantage of our new Nutanix Hyperconverged system. Our trusted advisor Sirius Computer Solutions told us about DH2i’s DxEnterprise Container Management software for SQL Server because it could containerize our Sungard Public Safety software as is,” said Cary Jeffers, Computer Resource Specialist, Linn County Sheriff’s Office. “After a highly successful POC, we deployed DxEnterprise and Nutanix. Since deployment, we have been able to move containerized SQL instances from one Nutanix node to another, on the fly, improving overall system availability and manageability.”

DH2i’s DxAdvantage Partner Program provides partners the ability to integrate DxEnterprise mobility, orchestration, HA/DR and multi-subnet support into their existing offerings. Program enrollment also entitles partners to a comprehensive set of tools and collateral that promise to reduce sales cycles, enhance trusted advisor status and dramatically increase revenue. The Program includes:

  • MSP and hosting opportunities
  • Rich discounts and other incentives
  • Extensive technical and sales training
  • Sales tools and marketing support
  • Opportunity registration for margin protection

“DH2i’s channel partners need access to the best technology and resources to maintain their status as strategic advisors and drive sustainable revenue,” said Connor Cox, Director of Business Development, DH2i. “Our goal is to create a channel ecosystem that enables our partners to provide superior customer outcomes, increase wallet share and help customers get more out of their IT infrastructure and budget.”

“We strive to find the most innovative and street-proven technologies to help our clients simplify and optimize their IT infrastructure,” said Rui de Oliveira, Business Development, Data Sciences. “To that end, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with a company that holds to our stringent criteria and reinforces that mandate. The partnership with DH2i will spark numerous new client conversations, open new doors and deepen existing relationships.”

“DH2i’s DxEnterprise software is a must to enhance our datacenter management solutions,” said Dale Hyde, Client Solutions Advisor, Frontier Technology. “With a goal to boost our primary offerings not only in servers and virtualization, but also across infrastructure and operations, this partnership differentiates us, provides shorter sales cycles and creates new opportunities.”

“Massive amounts of data aggregated at the federal level is stored and accessed through government-operated datacenters or FedRAMP-certified cloud providers, so improving efficiency while ensuring data availability is critical. DxEnterprise reduces software and infrastructure costs by 50%-70% and delivers 99.99+ application availability. It’s a perfect fit for our commitment to providing our public sector clients with the best solutions to manage the most complex and highly-critical environments,” said Randall Van Allen, CEO, Madison Cloud IT Solutions.

“As an independent consultancy, we work for our clients – providing valuable, unbiased guidance to suit their specific IT and business requirements,” said Ian Nicholls, Independent Licensing & Software Asset Management Consultant, The SAM Club Limited. “With a primary goal of helping our clients achieve more from their IT infrastructure and budget, partnering with DH2i enables us to offer an option for simplicity and freedom from OS sprawl and costly Microsoft licensing.”

The marked increase in global registration for the DxAdvantage Partner Program indicates DH2i’s commitment to the channel and validates the success already being enjoyed by partners on 3 different continents. For more information or to become a partner, please visit: http://dh2i.com/partners.
